Papaya-Lime Sorbet

In Mexico, papayas are served with a wedge of lime and a pinch of salt. This sorbet honors the sweet-tart combination and transforms it into an elegant dessert. It's like a tropical vacation in your mouth.

Serves 8

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 40 min.

Ingredients

  • 8 cups peeled, seeded and diced ripe papaya, (about 1 very large or 8 small; see Ingredient note)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup “lite” coconut milk, divided
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice, divided
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest, divided
  • 2 pinches of salt

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Line a large baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Arrange diced papaya in a single layer and freeze overnight.

Step 2

Combine water and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar is completely dissolved and syrupy, 3 to 5 minutes. Pour the syrup into a glass measuring cup and let cool for 15 minutes. Remove the papaya from the freezer to defrost while the syrup is cooling.

Step 3

Transfer half the frozen papaya to a food processor. Add half the syrup, 2 tablespoons coconut milk, 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon lime zest and a pinch of salt. Pulse two or three times then process until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides and stir as necessary. Transfer the sorbet to a large serving bowl. Repeat with the remaining ingredients; add to the serving bowl. Serve immediately or freeze until ready to use.
