This raspberry sorbet recipe is a healthy summer dessert full of fruity flavor.
Those plants yield loads of berries, but we have to battle the rabbits, chipmunks, birds, and squirrels every year. This year, my husband built a fortress around our raspberry patch to keep the critters out. It’s been a success, and the result has been more raspberries making their way to our kitchen this year.
One of my favorite things to make with raspberries is this raspberry sorbet recipe. It’s easy to put together, and it’s healthier than your average dessert. The sweet and tart flavor combination is so refreshing. You can adjust the proportions to suit your tastes by playing with the amount of maple syrup and lime juice.
Raspberry Sorbet Recipe
$1.26 per serving
- 4 cups raspberries
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 3/4 cup or more pure maple syrup or to taste
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbs fresh lime juice
Using a food processor or high-powered blender, puree the raspberries and coconut milk. Strain in a fine-mesh sieve to separate the seed bits from the raspberry puree. Stir and press down the mixture with a flat spoon or spatula to get as much of the puree into the bowl below as possible. Discard the solids.
Add the maple syrup, vanilla extract, and lime juice to the puree. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
If you’re using an ice cream maker, churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions for sorbet. In my KitchenAid attachment, I churn this for about 10 minutes. If you don't have an ice cream maker, you can skip the churning.
Either way, place the sorbet in a wide, shallow container until frozen (at least 2 hours). If it becomes too solid, let it soften in the fridge for a bit before serving.
