This cool vegan Cucumber Mint Sorbet is light and refreshing. Perfect for a hot Summer day!
Let's just get this straight right off the bat. I am a chocolate lover. It is my go-to dessert. I love rich, dark chocolate - the darker the better in most cases.
I really could care less about all the other desserts out there unless I am struck over the head and forced to eat it. Just kidding. Well, sort of.
So, I must have been struck over the head recently because here we have a Cucumber Mint Sorbet. What!
How did that get here? Oh, I remember now, it was because I went to Market on the Move, where they give you up to 60 lbs. of produce for a measly $10 donation. I happened to walk away with 70 or so cucumbers.
So I was off to the races creating cucumber recipes.
Cucumber Salad, Cucumber Dressing, Cucumber Mint Sorbet... I think this is turning into a Forrest Gump movie.
This vegan sorbet is light and refreshing. If you don't have an ice cream maker, like me (I mean, do I really need another gadget in my small kitchen?), then this recipe is for you.
I don't even own an ice cream scoop. Can you tell from the photograph? I hope not, I tried really hard to make it look like I scooped it with a proper scoop. I used my hands to mold the sorbet and everything. They were freezing. Okay, so maybe you can tell by the bottom photo. It isn't as scoop worthy as the top photo.
However you scoop it, you will love this sorbet. By adding vodka, you get a softer, smoother consistency and it is less icy.
This Cucumber Mint Sorbet is the perfect Summer treat!

Cucumber Mint Sorbet
- 2 cucumbers (approx. 3 cups)
- 3 tablespoons fresh mint leaves
- 5 tablespoons agave syrup
- 1 tablespoon lime juice - I used 2 key limes
- 1 teaspoon lime zest
- 3 tablespoons vodka - to inhibit freezing and to add a softer texture
- Peel and deseed cucumbers. Put all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Freeze.
- Once frozen, blend again in food processor and refreeze. This will give a nice, soft texture.

This sounds like a very refreshing dessert! I have never had cucumber in a sorbet, but I bet is tastes great with the mint and lime!

What a great, healthier dessert. That's an interesting concept with the Vodka twist.

Isn't it? I read that it makes a smoother consistency, and I found it really does help!
