Quick Peach Sherbet

The flavor of this sherbet leans heavily upon the quality of your peaches — best beginning at the end of May if grown in North Carolina. The low amount of sugar makes this treat a good pick as compared to traditional ice cream. We left the skins on for extra nutrition and texture, but you could peel your peaches for a smoother sherbet.


  • 4 medium-sized peaches, pitted, unpeeled, coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Fresh mint for garnish


  1. Freeze chopped peaches on baking sheet for a few hours or until hard.

  2. Whisk sugar, sour cream, lemon juice and vanilla in a bowl.

  3. Transfer peaches to food processor. Pulse until they resemble snow.

  4. Add sour cream mixture and whirl until smooth.

  5. Serve topped with fresh mint.

  6. Freeze leftovers.

  • A recipe using fresh fruit & low sugar is extra good in my book. I’m finally convinced to buy a food processor.
