Sorbetto Al Limone

Sorbetto al limone is a classic refreshing Italian dessert that celebrates the natural sweetness and vibrant flavors of Italian lemons. This ancient frozen dessert was most likely invented in Sicily where, in the summertime, people used to mix the snow of Etna with some lemon juice to create a refreshing drink. 

Made with pureed lemon and sugar, sorbetto al limone is a dairy-free alternative to ice cream. The sorbet is churned to create a smooth and velvety texture, capturing the essence of the fruits. Whether enjoyed on its own as a palate cleanser or as a refreshing finale to a meal, sorbetto al limone is a true taste of Italy's iconic lemons for simple yet exquisite flavors.
