Super refreshing and light, this sugar free lemon sorbet tastes just like the lemon sorbet I enjoyed in Italy as a child.

Ingredients used in the Sugar Free Lemon Sorbet
Just a few simple ingredients are used to make this sugar free lemon sorbet, just like the Italian lemon sorbets.
- Lemon Juice: freshly squeezed lemon juice is used to maximize the true lemon flavor in this lemon sorbet.
- Lemon Zest: for more intense lemon flavors we used fresh lemon zest.
- Sweetener: Use your sweetener of choice, for this recipe we used erythritol.
- Warm Water: warm or hot water is used to quickly dissolve the sweetener and then add the remaining ingredients. No need to turn on the stove.
- Keto Corn Syrup: an optional ingredient but I like to use it as a stabilizer in ice creams and sorbets.

Steps by step instructions
How to make a sugar-free lemon sorbet in the Ninja Creami
STEP 1: In a large bowl combine the warm or hot water with the sweetener. Whisk until mostly dissolved. Then add the ¾ cup lemon juice and remaining ingredients and whisk for about 30 seconds.
STEP 2: Pour into the Ninja Creami Pint and freeze for 24 hours.
STEP 3: After 24 hours place the pint without the lid in the Ninja Creami container, lock it in place and press the "sorbet" button.
STEP 4: The lemon sorbet should be ready to eat after using the Creami machine. If still powdery run it once again in the machine using the "re-mix" button. Serve and enjoy.
How to make a sugar-free lemon sorbet in a glass container?
STEP 1: In a large bowl combine the warm or hot water with the sweetener. Whisk until mostly dissolved. Then add the remaining ingredients and whisk for about 30 seconds.
STEP 2: pour the mixture into a glass container or tupperware with a lid. Place in the freezer and scrape with a fork every hour for the first 4 hours.
After 5 hours it should be ready. If you freeze overnight you should leave the sorbet out of the freezer for a bit in order to soften so you can scoop it out into a bowl.

Top Tip: For a less icy sorbet, leave it out of the freezer for 5 minutes prior to mixing in the Creami machine.
Creamy: for a creamier non-dairy-free sorbet, add 1 oz of softened cream cheese to the mixture.
Leftovers: if you have leftovers store it in the creami pint in the freezer, when ready to consume again use the "re-mix" button on the Creami machine. Sometimes you may need to remix it twice to get the right consistency.
- Serving: the sugar free lemon sorbet is great on its own, however, you may garnish it with a mint leaf or serve it with a square of sugar free dark chocolate.
This dairy free lemon sorbet can be made with other low carb fruits, here are a few different sorbets I have tried.
- Strawberry - omit the lemon juice and combine 1.5 cups of fresh strawberries and the sweetener in a sauce pan. Simmer for about 5 minutes, then mash and use in this recipe. Don't add any extra sweetener.
- Blueberries - Follow the same as the strawberry version above.
- Almond - soak a cup of almonds in water overnight. The next day peel them, blend them in a blender until smooth and creamy. Replace with the lemon juice and zest from this recipe.
This sugar free lemon sorbet recipe is also gluten free.
