What is Raspberry Sorbet?
A "Sorbet" is a frozen dessert made with syrup or other sweeteners such as honey, a fruit puree or fruit juice.
It may also contain eggs, chocolate, wine and/or liqueur.
Almost any fruit can be made into sorbet.
The flavour of fruit sorbet is so pure and intense that it is a great way to use ripe fruit in season.
A little bit of this treat goes a long way ... servings do not need to be large since the flavour is so vivid.

When making sorbet, it is very important to continue to taste the mix because, depending on how ripe the fruit is, it can vary a lot in acidity and sweetness.
Start by adding most, but not all of the sugar, so you can use less or more if needed.
You may also need to adjust the lemon juice if that is included in the list of ingredients. Remember that the fruit flavour will intensify upon freezing, so a mix that tastes moderately sweet before freezing, may taste much too sweet afterwards.
It may take some practice using the same recipe to get the taste exactly as you want it, but, that just means you get to EAT more SORBET!:)
If you do not have an ice cream maker, and you are considering purchasing one, I heartily recommend it!
I NEVER knew that making homemade, healthy frozen desserts with your own ice cream machine was sooo easy!
The type and model of ice cream maker that I have is the first ice cream maker in the row of images below, a Cuisinart Pure Indulgence model.

If you have an ice cream maker, you can use that to make sorbet, however a blender will work just fine too.
Sorbet is a great, refreshing, low fat dessert because, unlike ice cream, it has no butterfat.
It is also a great alternative to ice cream for those who cannot tolerate dairy products (providing none of the additives include dairy).
Of all the different types of fruit sorbets, Raspberry Sorbets are quite possibly the most popular with the taste explosion they provide. They are also very nutritious since raspberries are packed with more anti-oxidants, vitamins and nutrients than most other fruits.
