Key Lime Sorbet

Take the joy you felt as a child on the last day of school and multiply it by 1,000. That's the joy a teacher feels when that final bell of the school year rings. In fact, children are incapable of experiencing such elation. If they do, their heads will pop right off.

To celebrate the end of the school year and to kickoff summer, I prepared a Key Lime Sorbet.

Key Lime Sorbet

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup fresh or bottled Key lime juice


  1. Bring 3/4 cup water and sugar to boil in heavy medium saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves.
  2. Mix in sweetened condensed milk, then lime juice. Transfer mixture to medium bowl; place over large bowl filled with ice and water and cool, stirring often, about 30 minutes.
  3. Process lime mixture in ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.
  4. Transfer sorbet to medium container, cover, and freeze until firm, at least 4 hours and up to 2 days.
  5. Serve with crushed graham crackers and a little whipped cream.
Enjoy the weekend!
