Oprah’s Ginger Peach Sorbet Recipe
I adapted Oprah’s original Ginger Peach Sorbet Recipe and it turned out wonderful. I am not a huge lover of a lot of ginger and I found it too strong for my liking. By leaving the ginger out it is a fabulous Peach Sorbet which is how I will be making it from now on.
In a small bowl combine the hot water, sugar, salt, lemon
juice and ginger (optional). Stir until sugar starts to dissolve.
Place the chopped frozen peaches in a bowl.
Pour the water mixture into the peaches and toss.
Pour the peach mixture into a blender and mix
until smooth and creamy. I could have eaten it just
like this. Since the peaches were still mostly frozen it was
like sorbet even without putting it in the ice cream maker.
Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker, following
the ice cream maker directions, then serve.
Oprah's Ginger Peach Sorbet Recipe

- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
- pinch of salt
- 1 Tbsp. pickled ginger

- In a small bowl combine the hot water, sugar, lemon juice, salt and ginger. Stir until the sugar starts to dissolve.

- Pour the entire mixture into a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.
- Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and churn according to the ice cream makers directions.
- Serve immediately.
You can leave out the ginger and make Peach Sorbet instead if you are not crazy about the ginger like me.
Yum, Diane. I will bookmark this for peach season in New Jersey.
I really loved the taste and it was simple but I didn’t care for it with the ginger. I will keep making it without the ginger though, so good!
Thank you very much madam for sharing another great recipe .Take care.🌹🙏
Thank you Francis! 💕
Most welcome madam.Take care🌹🙏
Sounds like a good recipe adaptation, Diane ~ thank you for sharing 🙂
Thank you Phil and you’re welcome! ❤️
Thank you for sharing! 💕
Looks like a nice light dessert for a hot summer night.
Yes it really was and it didn’t make a huge amount so good portion control. Thanks JC!
Yeah, not keen on ginger with peaches either
It was strange because all you tasted was the peaches then once you swallowed it was a ginger after taste, so strange. Great without the ginger though. I like ginger with things like chicken but not this! Have a great week Sheree!
Thanks and you too Diane
That looks perfect for the summer! It’s gonna be peach season in our province too. A wonderful time to make the sorbet!
Thanks Ab and I agree!
Yes it really was, thank you!
Looks so good!
Thank you Chantel! ❤️
Wow, how refreshing and tasty looking, perfect for summer treat!
Refreshing is the perfect word to describe this Mel. Thank you!
Love ginger and peaches!
I knew somebody had too. I like ginger with chicken but I just didn’t care for it with the peaches. For me it had an aftertaste but I really loved the sorbet without the ginger. I bet you would love this recipe Dorothy.
This looks so good and refreshing!
It was very delicious and refreshing, thank you so much!
This sounds delicious! I’m not a huge fan of ginger either so I probably wouldn’t use any.
It is amazing without the ginger Michelle. When I blended my peaches they were still pretty frozen and I could have eaten it right out of the blender. It didn’t seem to change much by using the ice cream maker but it sure was good! Thanks ❤️
We’ll call it Dianeish Ginger Peach Sorbet 😁
Hahaha let’s do Dianeish Peach Sorbet, wasn’t crazy about the ginger but without the ginger is amazing! 💕
👍 thanks for the tip!
You’re welcome! 🍧
Hmm yum am sure it’s a delight for the tastebuds 🙂
It sure was Nisha! Thank you!
Sounds delicious and fancy. My mom squashed Ginger Snaps and put them in peach halves and put them in the oven. Then a little whipping cream with nutmeg sprinkled on top. I should have appreciated those desserts then as much as I do now.
What a delicious yet simple dessert! Thanks!
Yes, I loved the smell of it – the whole kitchen smelled nice afterward.
lind a- what a cool dessert idea?
Yes Yvette – it was just a simple dessert and she’d put it in the oven while the oven was still hot from making dinner. It was delicious.
It sounds refreshing on a hot June day!
It sure was and so easy to make! Thanks!
this sounds so good – I wonder if you can make it with stevia?
I don’t see why not. Putting it in the ice cream maker didn’t really change the consistency so the Stevia should be fine.
thanks and summer time is such a great time for sorbet (nd any cold treats)
Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. It was very refreshing.
