James and the Giant Peach Sorbet

James and the Giant Peach has always been one of our favorite children’s book. The illustrations are so whimsical and the idea of giant food is hysterical. So when Gaylon conceived of a series of recipes based on children’s literature, James and the Giant Peach was a natural choice

Now James didn’t have a chance to make sorbet out of the Giant Peach but we let our imaginations wander and came up with this recipe.

• Measuring spoons and cups
• A food processor or blender
• A spatula
• A serving bowls

James and the Giant Peach Sorbet

Print Recipe
Serves: 8


  • 1 package of frozen peach slices
  • 2 tablespoons of corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar or 1 packet of sweetener
  • 1 cup of low fat yogurt
  • A little adult help



Put the frozen peach slices into the processor or blender.


Add the corn syrup and sugar.


Put the lid on food processor or blender and make sure it is on tight.


“Pulse” the food processors or blender. That means turn it on, then off in short bursts. Some food processors have a setting called pulse.


If the peaches are crowding up on the sides of the food processor and not getting mixed in, turn the machine off. Ask your adult helper to please push them down into the mix with the spatula, then process again.


Use the spatula to check that most of the big lumps are gone - there always seems to be one or two that escape the whirlpool effect.


If you’re using a processor, have your adult helper remove the blade before


you start to serve. If you’re using a blender, you might want to ask for help


getting the sorbet out if the blender jar is glass or too heavy.


Put the sorbet into individual bowls. The only thing left to do is


enjoy this peachy treat.


You can freeze your own peaches. Cut ripe peaches in slices and lay them on a cookie sheet or other flat pan that will fit in your freezer. They should be frozen in a couple hours. It all depends on your freezer.
