Guava is one of those fruits we don’t see very often in this country and it’s a real shame because it has a unique, sensual scent and flavor that immediately whisks you away to another world. Here in California I see them in the farmers markets in the late spring and summer, and I grab them whenever I can. They have tons of pectin, and the next time I get a big enough bagful I’ll make you some guava butter. But even if you don’t live in a state where guava grows, you can still experience it with this ultra simple sorbet because it’s made with just one ingredient, guava nectar,.

one ingredient guava sorbet is a refreshing and healthy dessert

You might not realize it but you can make wonderful sorbets from just about any kind of fruit juice, and it doesn’t have to be fresh, either, canned works just fine. You can find guava nectar in almost every grocery store, look for it with the other canned juices. If you keep a few cans in your cupboard you can whip this up as a last minute dessert. You do need an ice cream machine, but honestly, they aren’t very expensive and they are SO worth it. I’ve had my basic Cuisinart model for years and it serves me well. I think it was something like $49. SO WORTH IT 🙂  I look forward to pulling it out from the back of my cupboard every year.

Guava Sorbet is a healthy, low calorie, fat free dessert just perfect for spring and summer evenings!

Guava Sorbet

  • 2 11.5 ounce cans Kerns guava nectar


  • For best results, start with chilled guava nectar. When the nectar is cold, simply plug in your ice cream machine and turn it on. Pour the juice in and let the machine do its thing. Mine takes less than 20 minutes...
  • Spoon the sorbet into a chilled loaf pan or other container and put in the freezer until ready to serve.
The nutritional information for recipes on this site is provided as a courtesy and although tries to provide accurate nutritional information, these figures are only estimates.


  • This would be really nice with berries or other fresh fruit like kiwi.
  • You might want to make an after dinner ‘float’ — just add the sorbet to a glass and fill with chilled sparkling wine.
  • If you like you can add 2 Tbsp vodka or other alcohol (dark rum would be nice) to the juice before churning. The alcohol will make the sorbet more ‘scoopable’ after it has been in the freezer for a while.



Don’t lose it — pin it!

One ingreient is all it takes to make this fabulously refreshing dessert!
