Citrus sorbet with meyer lemons makes a delicious and yet so easy treat. 

I have been loving all things citrus lately. And this past week, I saw my favorite lemons at the grocery store – Meyer Lemons. It was pretty funny how excited I became when I saw the little display of Meyer Lemons. So lovely with their unique coloring and just sitting there in their basket waiting on someone to take them home and make something wonderfully delicious with them. So I grabbed as many as I respectably could.

Have you ever been that excited about buying something at your grocery store? Oh I sure hope so.

I certainly hope that you like lemons, too! Because I want to share this fantastic sorbet with you.

Sweet and tart and like a spoonful of sunshine in every single bite. Here’s to an early spring!

Recipe Review


  1. Every year I host a potluck dinner where everyone is asked to bring a Meyer lemon dish, from entrees to desserts. Everything has to have Meyer lemons in it. I just know your Citrus Sorbert with Meyer Lemons will be a big hit. Thank you for posting it.

    I must admit that I am running out of creative ideas for Meyer lemon dishes. Do you have any recommendations for Meyer lemon recipe books?

    Loads of appreciative applause in advance from my annual ML Feast guests to you,

  2. Ooohh, a tangy lemon sorbet is always a welcome treat. I’d eat it no matter what the weather. Yours looks super good. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I’d like to invite you to stop by and link this up.

  3. This looks like a delightful treat! I don’t think I’ve ever seen Meyer Lemons here. I may have to order some off of the internet!

  4. Isn’t it all about meyer lemons lately? I’m cooking so much with them these days and love it that the smell n flavor of it just perfumes everything be it a savory it a sweet dish. Have been eating a LOT of sorbet too 🙂
