Here’s a wonderful, clean, fresh palette cleanser for those heavy meals! Really simple, really soothing. Here comes Cucumber Sorbet:
- 4 Large Cumbers
- 4 Tbsp Simple Syrup
- 1 Basil leaves
- Juice of 1/2 a Lemon
First and foremost, make sure your ice cream maker’s canister is ready to go! Peel the cucumbers and cut them into quarter lengthwise. Scrape out the seeds with a spoon and discard.

Put the mixture into your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. This is what you should end up with:
