This honeydew sorbet recipe is so simple! You only need a few ingredients for this healthy summer treat.
Last week, my friend Alexa came for a visit. You know, my photographer friend 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 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!
Tips for Making Honeydew Sorbet
- Freezing the honeydew on a baking sheet ensures that the pieces don’t stick together while they freeze.
- If you don’t have a powerful blender, be sure your honeydew pieces are no larger than 1″ chunks. You may need to add a little extra liquid to get things moving in the blender.
- If you’re vegan, you can substitute agave for honey to keep this recipe completely plant-based.

We used honey 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!
