Cannabis Recipes: Infused Fruit Sorbet

Cannabis Recipes: Infused Fruit Sorbet

Published on 6/29/22

Summer is here, and while that means more daylight, tanned skin, and more adventures, it also means some tasty treats to cool off with. Whether you're a master chef in the cannabis kitchen or a novice sous chef just getting your feet wet, we've broken down some of the best recipes for cannabis-infused ice cream and infused sorbet below. 

Edibles 101 

Defined formally, edibles are any food product that has been infused with cannabis extract. If you're someone who loves to create things in the kitchen or are looking for a type of edible that you cannot find in a dispensary - making your own is a sure-fire way to go. 

However, creating edibles isn't as simple as throwing some bud into the brownie batter. A few separate processes must occur, starting with decarboxylation, which uses specific heat, time, and light to transform your cannabis into a compound that will give you all the feels. Once decarbed, you need to fuse the cannabis to a fat base, creating the likes of either cannabutter, cannabis-infused oil, or infused honey

Once these steps have been completed, you've now been blessed with the tricky task of dosing the edibles. While this isn't an exact science, consider utilizing an online dosing calculator, so you don't send any friends to outer space

Why You Should Create Edible Magic 

Marijuana edibles, just like anything else, have several pros and cons. In our opinion, those pros heavily outweigh the cons and are as follows below. 

  • Edibles are healthier than smoking or vaping. If you have any sort of respiratory issues, such as asthma, consider this alternative. 
  • They are going to provide longer-lasting effects. Because edibles take longer to digest, the results will go on for hours on end (literally) and can be perfect for those with chronic pain that need extended-release.
  • Edibles are all about creativity. There are no bounds to what you can infuse with cannabis, so you can really let those artistic juices flow in the kitchen.

What is Sorbet? 

Before diving into the sorbet and how to make sherbet, let's make sure we have the definition down and how the two are different. Sorbet is made from two main ingredients, fruit and sugar, and is sometimes called "water ice." This frozen dessert can also have wine, liqueur, or honey and does not have dairy ingredients - while sherbets do. 

Cannabis-Infused Sorbet Recipes 

Perhaps the best way to infuse cannabis in ice cream is to ditch the ice cream (and the machine) altogether and make an easy, guilt-free recipe that is just as tasty as ice cream for these upcoming hot summer months. All you need is a food processor or heavy-duty blender to create this treat. 

Watermelon Sorbet Recipe


  • 3 1/2 cups of fresh, seedless watermelon chunks
  • 2 tsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/4 cup warm water, as needed
  • 2 tbsp cannabis honey 


  1. Freeze watermelon chunks overnight. We suggest laying it on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper for best results.
  2. Place watermelon chunks in either a food processor or a heavy-duty blender.
  3. Add lime juice and allow to sit for 5 minutes to thaw out the watermelon slightly.
  4. Blend until smooth. Here is where you can add some warm water to aid the process along.
  5. Add the canna-honey to the mix, continuing to blend until smooth.
  6. Eat immediately for a softer texture, or transfer to a container and freeze for 3-4 hours or until firm. 

Raspberry Sorbet 


  • 3 cups raspberries
  • 2 tbsp cannabis honey 
  • 1 tsp lemon juice 
  • 1/4 cup warm water, as needed


  1. Lay out fresh raspberries over a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  2. Freeze the fruit until completely solid, which should take at least 3-4 hours (leaving them overnight works, too).
  3. Place the frozen fruit in the food processor or heavy-duty blender. 
  4. Add the cannabis honey and fresh-squeezed lemon juice. 
  5. Blend until smooth. Here is where the water can come into play, so you can achieve the texture you desire. 
  6. Eat immediately or freeze until firmness of your liking. 

Peach Sorbet


  • 4 medium peaches, sliced (equates to about 3 1/2 cups)
  • 1 tbsp cannabis honey
  • 1 tsp lemon juice 
  • 1/4 cup warm water, as needed for texture


  1. Slice the ripe peaches and make sure to remove the pit. 
  2. Lay the fresh slices over a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  3. Freeze until completely solid. Leaving them in overnight should do the trick.
  4. Place the frozen slices in a bowl of a food processor or blender, along with the honey and lemon juice.
  5. Blend until smooth. Add warm water if needed here. 
  6. Eat ASAP! Or freeze until you reach the firmness that you're looking for. 

Mango Sorbet


  • 2 mangos, diced (should equate to 3 1/2 cups)
  • 1 tsp lime juice 
  • 1 tbsp cannabis honey 
  • 1/4 cup warm water, optional 


  1. Dice the fresh mangos. Lay them over a baking sheet.  
  2. Freeze the mangos until completely solid, this can take as little as 3-4 hours.
  3. Place the mangos in a food processor or blender, along with fresh lime juice and cannabis-infused honey. 
  4. Blend until you reach the smoothness of your liking. Here's the option to add warm water to help with the texture.
  5. Devour your sorbet ice cream creation ASAP, or leave it in the freezer to firm to your liking for a later date.
