Italian Lemon Sorbet

Sorbetto al Limone

Sorbetto al limone is a refreshing dessert that celebrates the natural sweetness of the Italian lemon.  Food historians say it was invented in Sicily when the locals used to mix the snow of Etna with lemon juice to create a refreshing dessert.

Sorbetto al limone, served in a frozen Italian lemon, is a dairy-free alternative to ice cream. The sorbet is churned to create a smooth and velvety texture enjoyed as a palate cleanser or as a refreshing finale to a meal.
