Happy Monday! For whatever reason, I feel absolutely refreshed by a wonderful weekend and ready to tackle the week. That doesn’t happen that often!
By February, it always seems that winter has outstayed its welcome. One of my favorite things about winter is that citrus season. Although grapefruit are on the way out, there is still time to pick up a bag to make this amazing grapefruit sorbet recipe! It is the perfect mix of tart and sweet, and is absolutely refreshing. The color is absolutely stunning too! It’s enough to make me wax poetic.
I remember reading somewhere that if you put your citrus in the microwave for a few seconds before squeezing, it makes it easier to get every last bit of juice out. Of course, I forgot to try it, but let me know if you do and have any success!
Grapefruit Sorbet Recipe
- Yield: 4-6 1x
- 5 c. freshly squeezed grapefruit juice (from about 6 large grapefruit)
- 1 1/2 c. sugar
- Combine grapefruit juice and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat and whisk until sugar dissolves, around 5-6 minutes.
- Refrigerate for 25 minutes, or until chilled.
- Pour the chilled mixture into your ice cream maker and churn according to the directions – for me, this was about 25 minutes.
- After churning, pour into a container and freeze for 6-8 hours until frozen.
This looks amazing! Can’t wait to try it!

I love the pale pink color of this sorbet! I recently made tangerine sorbet and now I’m hooked—I’ll have to try each and every citrus fruit before I’m satisfied 🙂
Ooo! Tangerine sorbet? I’d love to have the recipe if you’re keen to share!
Grapefruit sorbet is my very favorite frozen treat. It has a very sophisticated taste which makes it perfect for more formal dinners. I like serving it in a fancy glass. I fill glass 1/3rd way with the grapefruit sorbet, even it out, sprinkle a layer of fresh chopped mint, another level of sorbet, another level of mint, another level of sorbet, then top it with a single mint leaf. The fresh mint really adds to the visual beauty while giving it an exquisite dash of flavor.
Hi Sarah – That sounds absolutely amazing! I’ll definitely try this the next time I make it!
Hi there. The current Food on Friday on Carole’s Chatter is collecting links to posts about ice cream and sorbets – or anything similar like gelato. I do hope you link this in. This is the link . Please do check out some of the other links – there are a lot of good ones already. Have a great week.
Hey Carole – I think I missed your post but it looks great! Keep me posted about future chatters!
I’m putting my core in the freezer now. I don’t now why I don’t eat this every day…
I know! It’s too easy – just sugar and grapefruit! I want to try it with other citrus too.

This sorbet looks delicious (and gorgeous)! My housemate and I recently made some rosemary simple syrup, and I think I’ll have to make this ASAP to go with it.
