Sorbet is made of whole fruit puree or fruit juice, sweetener (sugar, simple syrup, or liqueur), and water. That’s it. Just a few simple ingredients. Sorbet is dairy-free, as it contains no milk, cream, or eggs.
Sorbet is made in different ways. Some prefer to make it with an ice cream maker. My apricot sorbet is made without an ice cream maker. I use my Vitamix blender for this recipe. Follow the steps below for your best sorbet.
Freeze the container for up to 12 hours before making sorbet. Once it’s finished, freeze it immediately. Sorbet lasts 2-4 months in the freezer. When ready to use place the container in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to thaw then serve. Sorbet can be frozen and re-frozen and will retain its taste or texture.
Compared to ice cream, sorbet contains fewer calories, has zero fat, contains vitamin C, and is made with whole fruit. Sorbet is higher in sugar. So sorbet is a healthier option, but not completely healthy because of all the sugar. Enjoy it in moderation just as you would any dessert.
Sorbet contains just fruit, sweetener, and water. Sherbet contains milk, cream, buttermilk, and eggs, giving it a richer taste and creamier texture. Sherbet is not dairy-free or vegan.
I hope you enjoy this apricot sorbet. Make this anytime for an extra sweet summer treat.
