50 leaves fresh basil 26 g

2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 3/4 lemon
2 egg whites 4 tbsp

Before you start

A blender and a mixer or a food processor will be very useful for this recipe.

Egg whites previously set aside in the refrigerator from another preparation may be used in this recipe.


  1. Put a metal or glass bowl into the freezer so that it will be cold when filling it with the sorbet mixture.
  2. Put the basil leaves, water, and sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer, uncovered, 4-5 min, with occasional stirring, until a clear syrup is obtained. Let the syrup cool down 2 h at room temperature.
  3. Pour the syrup in a blender. Add the wine and lemon juice, then mix at maximum speed. Set aside.
  4. Beat the egg whites in a bowl using an electric mixer until stiff peaks are formed. Pour in the cooled syrup slowly, with stirring. Transfer the mixture to the prepared bowl, cover and put it in the freezer.
  5. Leave the mixture in the freezer about 3 h, while stirring every 30 min. Serve.


After a few days in the freezer, the sorbet will crystallize. In order to obtain a smooth consistency again, repeat the stirring.
