Top 10 Sorbet Recipes for Summer.

Forget all the warm desserts that you relished through the winter. With an increase in temperature, our hands reach for refreshing chillers or frozen desserts. It’s time to bring on the cool stuff! Frozen yogurt, frozen custard, gelato, ice-cream, granita and sorbets are some popular frozen desserts.

Sorbets, often called ‘Italian ice’, are made using fruit and sugar and have a dense and even texture. It is a part of the French classical menu and used as a palette cleanser during multi-course meals. It is made like ice cream and gelato, by slowly freezing down the ingredients while churning them constantly to create an even, consistent texture. It is different from a slushy ice or a granular granita. 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?

To keep the calorie count low, we have substituted sugar with sugar substitute and made a healthy Green Grapes Sorbet

Anardana often complements a number of chaat and gives a bite and refreshing flavor to any dish. Perk up your meal with this chatpata and chilled dose of Anar ka Slush. They are a perfect accompaniment to fastfoods like masala pav, dosa, usal etc.

You can also binge on this Kala Khatta Slush.This refreshing slush-like treat made with a blend of kala khatta syrup and cumin seeds pepped up with chaat masala, is sure to shake off all the tiredness you might feel and reboot your day.

If you are looking for some seasonal desserts then blend some strawberries along with some mellow banana and fibre-rich apple and create this Strawberry Banana Apple Sorbet. Also, Guava Sorbet with its sweet and sour taste is quite rejuvenating.

The amalgam of creamy banana along with tangy plum , creates an irresistible Plum and Banana Sorbet. What's better than watermelon? Watermelon sorbet!. The combination of lemon and watermelon strike the right cord.

Who doesn't love Ghanne ka juice? How about turning it into a Sugarcane and Ginger Granita. Try serving it at the parties, we are sure you will get a lot of compliments!

This Orange Sorbet has a mind-blowing texture and even more fabulous flavour, combining both milky and fruity characteristics. Unlike regular slushes that are made with just fruit-flavoured juices, this Orange Sorbet combines the orange drink with condensed milk and cold milk, so that the resulting slush has a rich flavour and unique texture that is both icy and creamy. A real must-try recipe!

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. Love sorbet? Here's a wide range of fruity and refreshing sorbet recipes, I am sure you will love to try them all - Strawberry Banana Apple Sorbet , Sugarcane Sorbet , Guava Sorbet , Green Grapes Sorbet , Mango Ginger Sorbet , Orange Sorbet and Watermelon Sorbet .

Strawberries add josh to any recipe, with their vibrant flavour and beautiful hue. This Strawberry, Banana, Apple Sorbet is no exception. Although the flavours of all three fruits – strawberry, apple and banana – are notable in this drink, strawberry dominates the act. Apple adds volume and balances the flavour of this sorbet while banana gives it a luscious mouth-feel and natural sweetness. In a sorbet, the procedure of preparation is as important as the combination of ingredients. Follow this recipe to get it right. Once you freeze and scrape out the mixture, make sure you serve it immediately to get that special icy mouth-feel. Otherwise, the sorbet will get watery and become like any other juice. You can also try other sorbets like the Plum and Banana Sorbet and the Guava Sorbet .

As a based from Konkan and has Mango farm, we had ample stock of mangoes at home throughout season. We had enjoyed making Mango Sorbet several times for our home and for our guest. That was really easy and delicious treat from Tarla Mam. Also made Anar ka Slush, Watermelon Sorbet once. That was even turned good.
