Dragon Fruit Sorbet

Dragon Fruit Sorbet
Dragon fruit (also called pitaya or pitahaya) are actually the fruit of a cactus. White, red, and yellow dragon fruit all work well in this sorbet. For an extra special presentation, save and freeze the scooped out dragon fruit halves to use as serving dishes.

This recipe makes about 2 cups of sorbet.


  • 2 dragon fruits
  • 3/4 cup cold water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons sugar


1. Cut the dragon fruit in half. Scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Reserve the empty halves for serving, if desired (freeze the halves until you are ready to fill them).

2. Place the dragon fruit pulp in food processor along with the water, lemon juice and sugar. Pulse until smooth. Pour into an ice cream maker and churn until frozen.

3. Spoon the sorbet into the frozen halves, or freeze the sorbet until ready to serve.
