So as you may have noticed from my pickled rhubarb and rhubarb jam recipes – I'm somewhat obsessed with this ingredient! And the different ways I've used it demonstrate just how versatile rhubarb can be! After a long winter – this bright pop of color is just what I need, and so for my next recipe I decided to make it into a sorbet. 

I've added the gin partly because of the flavor, partly because I love gin (well, I am British!!!), and partly because the alcohol helps keep the sorbet from freezing rock hard. I used four tablespoons and you could definitely taste the gin (it works out to one tablespoon per serving), but you could always halve that and the recipe would still be delicious.

How to Make a Low Carb Rhubarb Sorbet with Gin

To make the sorbet, trim the rhubarb and roughly chop. Add it to a saucepan with water, low carb sweetener (use your preferred granular sweetener that is equal in volume and sweetness to sugar – I used Lakanto – a monkfruit blend – get 20% off if you use coupon code SAFTC!), and lemon juice.

Cook over a medium heat until the sweetener has dissolved, then cover and cook for about 15 minutes or until the rhubarb has completely broken down.

Let the mixture cool slightly, then stir in the gin. Transfer it to a blender and blend until smooth. Add in a few drops of red food dye if desired. Transfer the mixture to a jug and chill in the fridge for at least an hour. 

After that time, pour it into an ice cream maker.

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions but make sure the ice cream doesn’t freeze solid. When it can hold its own shape, transfer it to a container, cover, and freeze until solid. 

Soften in the fridge for 10-15 minutes before serving.
