Some of the best dishes can take more than a day to make, while others only need a couple of minutes — like this 5-Minute Grape Sorbet!

Well, okay, it takes a little more than five minutes to actually make this decadent sorbet, but you only need four ingredients and much of the waiting time is simply from freezing the grapes to give them a firm texture. Otherwise, you’ve got yourself a quick, refreshingly good frozen dessert that can cool off any hot day!

Green grapes work best for this recipe because not only are they wonderfully bright and juicy, but they’ve got that sweet-tart punch that pairs nicely with a dash of honey or sugar. I’m a little more partial to honey because it’s easier to blend in the food processor than sugar, though both will yield an equally delectable result. It really depends on what makes your taste buds happy!

A teaspoon of lemon zest and lemon juice brightens up the grape’s already vibrant flavor, making this sorbet a delightful treat that will make you crave seconds.

Smooth, savory, and sumptuous — this is what this 5-Minute Grape Sorbet is all about! Aside from enjoying it as a dessert, you can have it as a special little snack even when it isn’t hot. It’s definitely a recipe for all seasons, and you can get creative by pouring your sorbet into cute little cups or elegant glasses. It’s going to be a hit with both kids and adults, so if you have a family brunch coming up, you can add this delicious, nutritious, 5-Minute Grape Sorbet into the menu!
