Refreshing Low Sugar Fresh Peach Sorbet with Sage -
With summer peaches being abundant this time of year, I wanted to take full advantage of their sweet, fruity flavor and pair them with some earthy garden sage to make this Refreshing Low Sugar Fresh Peach Sorbet with Sage.
I think it must have been the peach-fuzz thing that made me think the flavors of peach and sage would match well together. If you’re familiar with fresh sage, then you know the leaves have the faintest bit of fuzz on them, very similar to a fresh peach.

If the thought of removing the skin from a peach is daunting to you, let me assure you that it’s a very simple process that only takes a pot of boiling water, a bowl of ice water, and a paring knife.

Here’s the fast and easy way to remove the skin from a peach…Do it once and you’ll be a pro for life 🙂

  • Bring a pot of water to boil over high heat.
  • In a large bowl, add enough ice and water to make an ice bath.
  • Use a paring knife to score an X into the bottom of each peach.
  • Use a slotted spoon to gently lower the peaches into the boiling water.
  • Allow the peaches to sit in the boiling water for approximately 30 seconds.
  • Use the slotted spoon to remove the peaches from the pot and carefully place them in the ice bath.
  • Use the paring knife to carefully peel the skin off the peach starting where the X was cut on the bottom.

Low Sugar Fresh Peach Sorbet with Sage could not be easier to make. Since sorbet has only a minimal amount of sugar it’s the perfect dessert or snack for when you’re looking for something sweet, but don’t want to sabotage your diet by eating a big bowl of ice cream or sherbet that has twice as much sugar and calories.

Peach Sorbet with Sage
  • In a medium saucepan, heat the water, sugar, lime juice, and sage leaves until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from the heat and discard the sage. Cool the sugar mixture slightly.
  • Peel and slice the peaches, discard the pit and skin. Place the sliced peaches in a food processor and add a pinch of salt.
  • Pour the cooled sugar/sage mixture over the peaches in the food processor and process until smooth.

  • Pour the peach mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufactures instructions.
  • Transfer the sorbet to a freezer container and freeze for an additional 2-4 hours. Serve and enjoy!

  1. Oh my gosh Renee, this ice cream sounds fantastic. I love pairing sage with fruit.

  4. Sorbets are perfect this time of year. I love how you added fresh herbs.

    I love peaches and I love sorbet so this seems like the perfect yummy recipe for me. I love the touch of sage you added to the peaches. I just used thyme and strawberries together and was surprised at how well the herbs and fruit work together. Thanks for the top on removing the peach skins, kind of like taking the skin off of a tomato, who knew?! One question, can you make this without an ice cream maker?

    • Hi, Linda!
      That is a great question, but I’m afraid I don’t have a proper answer because I’ve never tried it.
      The only thing I might suggest is that when you put it into a container to freeze (without an ice cream maker), is that you remove it often (maybe every hour or so), stir it up, and then put it back into the freezer. This MAY do the trick but I have a feeling it will turn it into more of a slush than a sorbet…but then again, I’m just guessing.
      Wish I had a better answer for you. Sorry that I don’t.
