As your family starts to settle into that summer groove, you’re surely more likely to entertain at home. And why not? From pool parties to barbecues, summer is a great time to hone your hosting skills with your favorite guests.
Whether those guests are your friends, family, neighbors or simply all of your kids’ friends playing in the yard, one thing’s for sure – the summer sun is going to be hot, and you’re going to want to find ways to keep your cool.
This easy summer dessert is the perfect DIY treat for any sweltering summer occasion. Sweet, sour, and, most importantly, refreshingly cool, you can quickly and easily whip up a few Raspberry Sorbet Lemon Bowls for the entire crew this summer.
Give it a try using the instructions below, and feel free to get creative, adapting this recipe to try other flavors! We’re thinking maybe a refreshing lemon sorbet in frozen lime bowls would be delicious. You could even try using a creamy vanilla bean sorbet in zesty orange bowls for a new take on a classic summer favorite: the orange creamsicle!

Step One: Cut your lemons in half in such as way that the bumpy ends of the lemon are on either side of your knife.
Step Two: Carefully cut the bumps off of your lemons in such a way that it doesn’t puncture through and cut a hole in your lemon bowl. This will serve as the base of your summer dessert so that it stands upright, and we certainly don’t want our sweet sorbet to ooze out of the bottom.
Step Three: Carve out the deliciously sour fruit of the lemon so that the peel itself resembles a zesty, miniature lemon bowl. Place your miniature lemon bowls in the freezer to get them nice and chilly, perfect for a hot summer’s day.
Step Four: While the lemon bowls freeze, wrap brightly-colored washi tape around the tops of each spoon, leaving room for a small spoon flag. If you wish, use a pair of scissors to cut notches in the flags.
Step Six: Stick your spoon flags in your creations, serve on a hot summer day, and watch your refreshingly easy summer dessert quickly disappear!
