Last week, my friend Alexa came for a visit. You know, my photographer friendΒ who just happens to love healthy food as much as I do. My friend who is willing to spend an hour shooting photos of a honeydew with me, so I can learn how to get the light just right.

Now that’s a friend.

This honeydew sorbet recipe is so simple! You only need a few ingredients for this healthy, vegan, & gluten free summer treat.

This honeydew sorbet turned out to be easier to make than it was to photograph. (Melting foods are a bit more of a challenge.) But we had a fun time playing around with it and we really enjoyed getting to eat it. This is truly one of those treats that you can feel good about eating because it’s basically just fruit. This would be a perfect treat for the whole family!

Honeydew Sorbet
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 4
  • 1 honeydew melon
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp maple syrup or honey
  1. Slice the honeydew into 1" chunks and spread out on a baking sheet.
  2. Put it in the freezer for 4-6 hours until frozen.
  3. Once frozen, put the chunks in the blender with the lemon juice and sweetener.
  4. You may need to add a couple tablespoons of water to help it to start blending.
  5. If you don't have a high-powered blender, you can make this in a food processor.
  6. Blend until smooth.
  7. Put it back into the freezer for another 30 minutes until it sets.
  8. Scoop & serve!

We used honeyΒ because my friend Carin brought me back some orange blossom honey from Charleston and I couldn’t wait to use it! But if you want to keep this vegan, you can substitute maple syrup or really any sweetener you like. If you have a really ripe honeydew, you can omit it all together!


Yeah, this summer treat is going to be on repeat over here! I just love frozen treats. I’ll always pick ice cream over cake!

  1. YES! That looks amazing. It’s been such a long time since I had some honeydew. However, I would chose sorbet form anyway over regular fruit. )

  6. This looks amazingly refreshing. Perfect!

  7. I just sliced into the BEST honeydew of my life yesterday! I had a hard time sharing it with my kids it was that good! It would’ve tasted amazing as a sorbet!! Guess it’s back to Sprouts to hopefully pick an equally delicious melon to make this recipe…because everything’s better in ice cream form! πŸ™‚ I would choose ice cream over cake 100 times out of 100. πŸ˜‰

  8. I’d pick cake–i love it so much haha gluten free now though. still delicious!

  20. mmmm I love honey dew!!! This looks so refreshing! Love that it only has 3 ingredients πŸ™‚

  21. I love ice cream, but I would probably still pick cake! Would this work with watermelon?

    • I’m not sure, actually! I think watermelon might have a slightly different texture but I bet it would work!

  25. You had me at honeydew! It’s one of my favorite fruits and I love that bright green color. My boyfriend is obsessed with pistachio ice cream, but I’d take this variety of the green treat any day πŸ˜‰

  33. This looks great- I bought a honeydew this week and will make it this weekend!
    Seems like you can cut it and blend it and then put it in the freezer to set – bypassing the first step of freezing the cubes 4-6 hours.. Any reason why this can’t be done?

    • You could certainly give it a shot! The only thing is- the outside of the container will probably freeze first while the inside will still be soft. If you let it all get hard, it might be too hard for your blender to blend it. But it might depend on your blender!

    • Janet – Next time I try this, that is exactly what I am going to do! The honey froze the minute it hit the frozen melon, and although I have good appliances – Cuisinart – they didn’t really power through the frozen chunks to blend it well enough. I can’t imagine why cutting and blending first and then freezing wouldn’t work just as well! If anyone has tried it this way, please let us know!

  34. Frozen fruit is one of the treats I plan to introduce to the new little one in our family. I can hardly wait til he’s table food ready. Will save this recipe for just the right time!

  35. I think if you have a Champion juicer, you could just freeze your melon chunks and run it through there and have your sorbet quickly and easily without worrying about a blender speed or adding water and such..it works for bananas, so I think I will have to try it for this also. Thank you for the idea!!! Blessings. πŸ™‚
