Sorbets for Summer.
Top 10 Sorbet Recipes.
These fruity concoctions make ideal dessert options when the temperature rises.
Forget all the warm desserts that you relished through the winter. It’s time to bring on the cool stuff! Sorbets, often called ‘sherbet’ or ‘Italian ice’, make the perfect desserts when summer sets in.
A sorbet is a frozen dessert made from sweetened water flavoured with fruit. Dense and even in texture, a sorbet is different from a slushy ice or a granular granita. It is made like ice cream and gelato, by slowly freezing down the ingredients while churning them constantly to create an even, consistent texture. While a sorbet can contain milk products, unlike ice cream it does not have air whipped into it. In fact sorbets are often used as an alternative to ice cream for those on a diet because they do not contain any fat.
However, you don’t have to be on a diet to enjoy the delicious coolness of these light and fruity desserts. Why not try your hand at making some refreshing sorbets this year?

This Orange Sorbet has a mind-blowing texture and even more fabulous flavour, combining both milky and fruity characteristics.

Combining chopped plums and bananas into a sorbet is a really brilliant idea, because the ingredients help each other to shine! While banana gives a creamy touch to the sorbet, the plums give it a wonderful tang.
Together the two result in a Plum and Banana Sorbet that has an ideal texture and taste. As in the case of all sorbets, make sure you serve it as soon as it is assembled into the glasses, to enjoy the icy crispness.
