Melon, Peach & Red Wine Sorbet






























I am still on the sorbet trail. I am just loving it and I just don't fell guilty about it as a dessert. A few spoonfuls of sorbet is enough to get your sweet fix, without the fat, but lots of vitamins.

Melon, Peach & Red Wine Sorbet

1 melon, scooped out,
2 peaches, halved, stoned and peeled
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup red wine

Whizz up all the ingredients and either blend in an ice cream machine or freeze in a container and whip up every few hours.





























Another gorgeous sorbet. I like the fact that they are so quick to whip up. I have to admit that my sorbet didn't come out with much colour. I thought the red wine would make it lovely and pink, but it didn't, so I cheated and put a couple of drips of veggie approved, red food colouring. It seemed even more appealing when it was a beautiful pink colour.

  1. I think that the wine is just to put Graham off eating it, right? ;)

  4. Love the addition of red wine--what a sneaky way to get one's daily alcohol (AND keep the sorbet from freezing too hard)! And the color is lovely, so who cares if it's "enhanced" (sort of like my hair color!). ;)

  5. I love your boldness in adding food dye for the desired colour - I often wonder if I should - and have done on the odd occasion like St Pat's day. Looks gorgeous (but I will pass on the melon!)

  6. Hi Davimack, You are so right! He did try the first one though and said it was good, but would be better without the wine. I like it with the wine, so this is my portion of sorbet!

    Hi Lore, It is lovely to be able to taste the fruit in a sorbet and not the slightly chemical flavour, that some store brands have.

    Hey Diann, it is indeed, very refreshing :)

    Hi Ricki, yes I like that. Enhanced colour!

    Hi Johanna, it just came out such a funny non-colour, not even a pastel hue. I thought a couple of drips wouldn't hurt.

  7. This is my kind of sorbet - its got wine in it - an excuse to open a bottle and finish the rest of it yourself (usually whilst watching Eastenders (it's so depressing that I need wine just to get through it))

  8. Hey Beth, I know what you mean, Eastenders gets like that sometime and anyway, any excuse for a glass of wine is a good one!

  14. I am really into melon sorbet at the moment but have only had the melon on its own - never with wine. This looks lovely and I am very tempted!

  26. Hi Paula, if I had left it much longer before I ate it, then I could have drunk it!
