The other day we talked about the Blueberry Lemon Sorbet. Did you make some yet? Well, today I have a new flavor for you. Cherry Lime. I know you guys have figured out that I spent the majority of my life in Oklahoma. That means Sonic Drive-ins on every corner. That also means I grew up on Cherry Limeades. I can remember the first time they offered these delicious drinks. Ugh. Showing my age. 😉
But let me tell you, when I moved here to MI and we didn’t have a Sonic, I thought I was going to die. I can live without fast food. It doesn’t make me happy. But, there’s something about going into the Sonic, parking your car, pushing that magical button and having the car hop bring your beverage of choice. When the Sonic came 30 minutes away, I couldn’t wait to get there. Years later they finally put one in my town. And, you know what? I hardly ever go. *sigh*
Funny how that works out.
Cherry Lime is a flavor I adore. My husband is a big fan of cherries and while I have sampled cherries from all over our great nation, I have to give it to Traverse City, they do really earn their title of being Cherry Capital of the world. Of course, given all the wines which are produced up that way, it’s no wonder the cherries are plump and golden for the picking. Grand Traverse Cherry Pie, Cherry Wine and Cherry coffee are wonderful treats.
So, it makes me happy to bring a little of those favorite memory flavors into a sugar-free dessert we can all enjoy.
Just like the Blueberry Lemon Sorbet, this one is a toss-it-in-the-blender-and-go recipe. With the exception of the cherries. I did have to remove the pits first.
Cherry Limeade Sorbet
- 3 limes pealed and seeded
- 1 lb cherries seeded
- Stevia to taste
- Place all of the ingredients in the blender.
- Blend until smooth.
- Pour into a lined pan.
- Freeze 3-4 hours.
Tell me all about your favorite freezer treats?

That sounds so good. It’s supposed to be wicked hot here this week,so it’s the perfect time to make some of this.
I love Sonic Limeades. They’re delish. This sounds so good and perfect for a hot day!

That looks so good. I’ve made lots of homemade ice cream, but I’ve never tried my hand at sorbet before. I can’t wait to give it a whirl.

Oh I will have to share this with one of my daughter. She lives in PA and misses Sonic also. That sorbet looks awesome.
I love sonic cherry limeade! I can’t imagine living where I couldn’t get one whenever I want. This sounds just as tasty though!
Cherry limeade is definitely a flavor combo I enjoyed when I as a kid. This is such an easy recipe!
This sounds so easy! I love cherry lime flavors, too.
Yum. I love sorbet, and would much rather give it to my kiddos than ice cream. I will for sure be trying this. I’m on this kick where I want to MAKE everything as apposed to buying it! This looks great!
I have such fond memories of Sonics and their fun treats. I need to make this one to relive the good ‘ol days.
Mmm this sounds so wonderful. It’s still pretty warm here, so a cool treat would be greatly appreciated.
A nice flavor combo for a tasty sounding snack. I”d be happy to try this one.
