A very refreshing and contrasting sorbet dessert: the acidity of lime and the sweetness of honey create a nice tasting balance. Serve in hollowed-out frozen lime or in glasses.
Ingredients for the Honey Lime Sorbet
Preparation time: 20 min
Cooking time: 15 min
Resting time: 30 min
- 1 1/2 cup (35cl) of lime juice
- 1 cup (200g) caster sugar
- 1/3 cup (100g) of liquid honey
- 2 1/2 cups (60cl) of mineral water
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 cup (100g) icing sugar
Pour the caster sugar, lemon juice, honey and water in a saucepan, bring to boil stirring until the sugar melts completely.
Reduce heat and cook for 10 minutes while simmering.
Remove from heat and let cool.
Pour into a dish and place into the freezer, stirring with a fork a regular intervals.
Meanwhile, work the egg whites until they are very firm. When they are very hard, add the sugar, continuing to whisk.

Fill hollowed frozen lemons with it. Or serve directly on a dessert plate or cup.
