Sorbet Filled Grapefruit

Sorbet Filled Grapefruit

Beautiful & vibrant – grapefruit halves filled with sorbet and sliced make a super impressive – and super simple – way to cool off on a hot day. 

1 portion = 1 slice (1/8th of a filled grapefruit)


  • 240g sorbet (around 56 ice cream scoops full) – ideally mixing 2 flavours with contrasting colours. I used raspberry and mango. 
  • 1 medium sized grapefruit


1. Make sure your sorbet flavours are soft enough to scoop. If not remove from the freezer and leave out for a few minutes to soften. 

2. Halve the grapefruit and scoop out all the fruit so you have an even smooth surface inside

3. Take small spoonfuls of the sorbet flavours and add to the grapefruit halves, alternating as you go. I had a cup of boiling hot water to hand to dip the spoon in as I went – to both clean it and to make it easier to scoop out the sorbet.

4. Once the grapefruit half is filled make sure you have packed in the sorbet well to remove air bubbles. Wrap in clingfilm and place in the freezer for at least 4-5 hours.

5. Remove the grapefruit halves and slice. I used a serrated knife and ‘carved’ it which worked well. Once you’ve cut your slices you can eat or add back into the freezer to save for later.
