A creamy 5-Ingredient Coconut Lemonade Sorbet recipe that tastes like summer sunshine! This quick treat is perfect for summer parties and can be made 2-3 weeks ahead!

I love lemonade and lemon based drinks all year long, not just in summers! Even my daily dose of water has a splash of lemon all day! Today, for my love of lemon (and for a beautiful presentation, thank you), I used  "Lemon Cups" to serve this creamy sorbet.

I love that Lemon Cups limit the portion size and eliminate the need of finding lots of small dessert bowls to serve a crowd. Plus natural lemon peel cups look so elegant served for a party! Don't you think?

Although Sorbet needs time to chill and freeze, the actual prep and cook time takes 10 minutes. I don't own a Ice Cream Maker, so all my frozen concoctions come together with two-times churning the semi-solid ice cream/sorbet using hand blender or my Vitamix. And they are still very creamy as if made in a professional grade Ice Cream Maker!

Secret, is in the simple technique.....

Creamy Yet Vegan Coconut Lemonade Sorbet without Ice Cream Machine |

It is very simple. Prepare the ingredients listed in recipe below and move straight to freezer in a freezer safe container. Then, after 30-40 minutes (depending upon freezing powder of refrigerator) when liquid is semi-solid, take out and churn it using hand blender until smooth. This process breaks the ice crystals, there by giving sorbet a signature creamy texture. Repeat once again after another 30 minutes and then pour in lemon cups (if using) to freeze fully!


Creamy Sorbet is ready to 'Rock the Party' with No Ice Cream Machine Needed  and just 5 Ingredients. Okay, okay.....  if you think salt and garnish will count, then 7.

5-Ingredient Refreshing Coconut Lemonade Sorbet |

The secret ingredient in this easy Coconut Lemonade Sorbet recipe is super-food Coconut! Coconut also contributes towards the creamy texture yet keeps it Vegan.

Creamy sorbet with big punch of lemony sweet lemonade and delicious tropical coconut taste, zippy chilled sorbet will bring a big smile on your face, making this recipe a perfect treat for summer. Kinda like eating frozen lemonade on a hot summer day!

Coconut Lemonade Sorbet is also great to pack for potluck. Once lemons are frozen fully, I stack them in a container with lid. Place a poly-bag filled with ice or few freezer packs in the bottom of an insulated bag, then put sorbet container on top. Works very well for short-distance travel.

PS: Have you ever tried Coconut Lemonade before? Trust me, friends!! It tastes amazingly refreshing! So, if, just in-case...... you don't want to make sorbet, strain the mixture after Step-3 and chill. Then dilute with some water or sparkling water and serve refreshing twist on classic lemonade - Coconut Lemonade
