Raspberry Sorbet

Three ingredients, 10 minutes and a food processor are all you need to make this exquisite raspberry sorbet. It freezes soft so it’s always scoop-able, and it absolutely bursts with  a sharp, fresh berry flavor.

This one is inspired by my favorite popsicle I had growing up, and to get to this final recipe I had some guidance from Donna Hay

 

Ingredients to make Raspberry Sorbet 

Water: Filtered, because it won’t be cooked so only use water you’d drink. 

 

Sugar: Granulated sugar. See note below for reducing. 

 

Lemon: Freshly squeezed, this will enhance the tart flavor of the berries. 

 

Frozen raspberries: this is important, they *must* be frozen for them to blend. I suggest organic because those tend to be more flavorful because of the way they are grown. If you have a trader joes, I use two of the bags to get an exact 680g.

How to make Raspberry Sorbet 

There are just two, very simple steps to make this raspberry sorbet: 

 

  1. Make a simple syrup by cooking water and sugar together 
  2. Blend everything in a food processor 

 

That’s it…

 

Can I use a different berry? 

Strawberries would work well here, I might add the juice of another lemon to bring out the tart in the berry. 

Can I reduce the sugar? 

You can by about ½ cup at most. The ice cream will be quite tart.
