Raspberrry Sorbet Recipe

Why make your own raspberry sorbet? Because store-bought sorbet is expensive! Back when Apollo was dairy-free and I was still breastfeeding him, sorbet was one of the few desserts I enjoyed. Everything else had milk or wheat (which I was also avoiding due to his Mystery Illness, you know, the one where his congenital heart defect was wrongly diagnosed as allergies…) On a good day, I could even get him to take a few bites.

But I digress…Now you know why you should make raspberry sorbet…now here is how you make it.

Raspberry sortbet with just two ingredients.

This rapsberry sorbet is made with just water, raspberries, and sugar. You can use fresh or frozen raspberries. I usually use frozen raspberries just because they are cheaper most of the year.

The first step is to boil the sugar and water together so you have a nice simple syrup.

Raspberry sorbet is easy to make at home.

Next, you add the water and sugar mixture to the blender and then blend until you have a smooth puree.

Pour mix into strainer to remove seeds.

Sorbet has no seeds, so you want to pour the blended mixture into a strainer. Use a spatula to press the puree through the strainer.

    I made it and it was SO yummy! It did take me a long time to strain out those seeds and I kinda gave up towards the end. I also ended up replacing a cup of the raspberries with strawberries.
