Desserts, Frozen Treats

Easy Berry Sorbet

June 13, 2014

It’s no secret that blackberries are high on my foodie crush list. Last summer I made some blackberry lemonade cupcakes that really knocked it out of the park, but this year I’m taking a different approach. Frozen treats are taking up permanent residence in my freezer starting with homemade ice creams, popsicles, and now sorbets! I couldn’t wait to try this recipe for berry sorbet! The best part? You don’t even need an ice cream maker.

I love that, unlike ice cream, sorbet’s aren’t dairy based. They are packed with fruit and frozen to perfection. It’s almost like a popsicle in ice cream form. Since I didn’t have an ice cream maker on hand I had to do a little improvising. To achieve the smooth texture I actually used my Blendtec, but I’ll give you a few other ways to get the smooth texture that don’t even require the use of a machine!

Easy Berry Sorbet


  • 1-3/4 cups sugar
  • 1-3/4 cups water
  • 2 cups raspberries
  • 2 cups strawberries
  • 1-1/2 cups real cherry juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice concentrate


  1. Combine the sugar and water in a large pot. Boil until the sugar has dissolved completely. Stir in the strawberries and raspberries. Continue cooking for ten minutes. Strain through a tight strainer. Refrigerate the juice until chilled and toss the pulp.
  2. Once your juice has cooled stir in the cherry juice, lime juice, and orange concentrate.
  3. From here you have three options:
  4. - pour mixture into an ice cream maker and follow instructions that came wit it.
  5. - pour into an air tight container. Freeze solid. Blend until smooth and freeze again.
  6. - pour into an air tight container and place into the freezer. Whisk every 20 minutes for the first two hours then freeze solid.
  7. Enjoy with a hand full of fresh berries or berry sauce.

    Oh lala this looks yummy, I really want to try this for the summer ~ one question tho, when you stir in the fruit, wouldn’t I need to mash them first or out them through a blender?

    I used all raspberries instead of a strawberry/raspberry mix and it turned out delicious. Don’t toss the pulp, it made the most delicious jam! No pectin needed, either!

      I’m going to have to try all raspberries! That sounds incredible.

      And great idea with the pulp!
