How to Make Raspberry Sorbet
Making sorbet is super simple, and it’s the best way to use up any frozen fruit. You can use just about any combination of fruits, but raspberries work particularly well because they blend into a creamy texture when blended with the sugar syrup and the lemon juice.
You can make the sorbet right away with a very soft texture, or you can let it sit in the freezer for 1 hour before serving to get a firmer, scoop-able texture. This will also keep it from freezing to the edges of your freezer container, which can make it harder to defrost.
The best tool for blending this sorbet is a food processor, although you can also use a blender if necessary. The food processor has a larger surface area, so it helps the mixture to come together more quickly. If you are using a blender, be sure to keep the lid on while mixing.
Prepare the sorbet by placing the raspberries in a food processor, then adding the sugar syrup and lemon juice. Blend until smooth and stir in the vanilla. Then, strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds.
To avoid crystals, you can freeze the sorbet in a double-walled ice cream container (such as this one), but a freezer-safe dish can work as well. It should be placed in the freezer at least 4 hours or overnight for the best texture, and it can stay in the freezer up to a week or more depending on your climate and freezer.
Serve with a slice of toast and fresh fruit or enjoy as a sweet, refreshing snack on your next summer vacation! It makes a great addition to any picnic or barbecue.
This sorbet is dairy-free, gluten-free and sugar-free. It is also low in calories, so it is a good choice for those watching their weight or avoiding dairy.
It also takes less than an hour to make, so it’s the perfect summertime treat for families! You can easily make a big batch and share it with friends or family!
You can also store this sorbet in the freezer for up to 2 months. When you’re ready to eat it, simply pull out a portion from the freezer and defrost it for about 10 minutes at room temperature to make it creamy enough to scoop.
This sorbet is the ultimate dessert for any summer party or picnic! It’s also delicious served as a palate cleanser or as an unexpected but sophisticated cocktail ingredient. Whether you want to treat yourself or give this a try as a gift, you’ll love the flavor and the texture of this raspberry sorbet!
