Grapefruit Sorbet

Ok I am sure you are thinking grapefruit sorbet really Jurahee??!!

But let me tell you it is DEVINE!!!

Right now there are tons of Texas Grapefruit on sale at our local grocery store so I just had to buy two ten pound sacks!

I love fresh grapefruit for breakfast but had to start looking up different recipes and quick.

My stand mixer has the most amazing attachment, the ice cream maker.   It makes the most luscious and sinful things with ease,  I just can't quit using it.

If you have a kitchen aid stand mixer and do not have this attachment you are missing out!

This recipe is perfect for a hot afternoon or even a windy one like today!


6 large grapefruit
2 large mangos
1/4 cup stevia or sugar (I didn't want mine too sweet because I love salted grapefruit but if you like sweet then add up to a full cup of sugar.)
1 cup water
2 shots of grapefruit infused Vodka (I soaked grapefruit rinds in two cups of vodka for about three weeks)
Coarse sea salt for garnish


Peel and section grapefruit and then squeeze juice into the bowl.  Peel and dice the mangoes.  With a  stick blender or food processor puree the mixture until it is a very smooth consistency.  Then place the mixture in the fridge to chill.  While that is cooling down pour water and sugar into a small pot on the stove and heat until the sugar is dissolved.  Once dissolved remove from heat and add the vodka. Then pour the spiked simple syrup into the fruit puree and stir to combine.  Set up the ice cream maker and pour the mixture in and let it freeze for about thirty minutes.  Then pour it into a glass bowl and place in the freezer to finish setting up.

I served myself a healthy bowl full for dessert.

I guess it could be a happy hour dessert since it is really just a frozen salty dog.  Maybe that's why I love it so.

  1. Oh that sounds good! I love sorbets:) I also love flavored vodkas!!! The best one for a bloody mary is to put peppers and garlic in vodka for a couple of weeks. So good and spicy! Also good on chicken:) I think the recipe is from Emerild (sp?) for vodka pepper sauce or chicken or something like that...
