How to Make Raspberry Sorbet

Step 1. Gather Frozen Raspberries – Make sure that the raspberries are completely frozen.  If using fresh, freeze them overnight on a baking sheet. 

Step 2. Add ingredients to the blender. Then place the frozen raspberries, honey, and lemon juice in a blender.  You may need to strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove any seeds from the frozen fruit.

FAQs

What Makes Sorbet so Creamy?

Sorbet gets its creaminess from the sugar that is added and from the fruit. Since there is no egg or dairy added, making sure the right amount of sugar is added is important for the texture.

If you freeze blended fruit or juice, then it would turn to a hardened black of ice crystals. So making sure you freeze quickly and blending the ingredients while frozen will keep it creamy.

Why is My Homemade Sorbet Icy?

The reason your sorbet is icy is because you may have added to much water out of your fruit. That is why it is important that your fruit is frozen. If you are using fresh fruit, make sure that you freeze it before blending.

You may need to add in some sugar to help with the icy texture of the sorbet.

Do I Need an Ice Cream Machine?

No, you don’t need an ice cream maker machine. This recipe requires only a blender or a food processor to mix the frozen ingredients.

Prepare the homemade sorbet by using sliced berries, then add to your high-power blender and blend until smooth.
