Tart, sweet, and fruity! That’s everything nice about today’s recipe.
For the longest time, I have been intimidated when it comes to ice creams and sorbets but I recently found the answer to all my questions… Just make something no churn. It literally eliminates half of the work loaf and comes out just as good.
So if you are a beginner baker and want to make your own homemade ice cream or sorbet, that’s the way to go. Also if you don’t have room or the money for an ice cream maker it’s the way to go as well!
This is the best and easiest 2-ingredient raspberry sorbet recipe
When I say that I really mean it! We have made this easy raspberry sorbet about 4 times already… If that doesn’t tell you how good this is I don’t know what will!
I’m actually obsessed with raspberries, they are one of my favorite berries… Probably because we didn’t have them as much growing up. Raspberries were things we saw in cook books and tv shows but didn’t have them in Algeria so whenever I travelled and had the chance to have raspberries, I had just that.
Hence, my obsession with this tiny fruit.
So when I found them on sale at the store this week, I bought probably 10 packs… I actually froze whatever I had leftover for some pink raspberry smoothie in the future! So, now I am ready to make all the raspberry summer desserts (both healthy and unhealthy so watch out!)
What’s so special about this 2 ingredient raspberry sorbet?
I love easy recipes and this is one of them. Here you’ll see why you need to make this raspberry ice cream/ sherbet/ sorbet sorta thing!
- It is insanely easy to make.
- You can use fresh raspberries when they are in season but you could also use frozen raspberries from the store too!
- You don’t have to strain the seeds. A little crunch ain’t never hurt nobody 😉
- You can have this as a soft serve right away or freeze it for an extra scoop-able sorbet.
What is the difference between sherbet and sorbet?
This is probably the thing I was the most confused about for the longest time. I always saw sherbet at the store but wasn’t sure what the difference between that and a sorbet.
But the simple answer is this, sherbet has some sort of dairy in it usually cream and will result in an ice cream textured treat. While sorbet is lighter and doesn’t contain any dairy.
Well, this recipe would fall under raspberry sherbet recipe more than it would a sorbet, because we are actually using milk in the recipe. We are not using heavy cream so it doesn’t have that super sherbet/ice cream texture, so we’ve decided to just call it a 2 ingredient sorbet recipe!
We are actually using sweetened condensed milk to sweetened the sorbet as well as keep it from becoming rock solid. The sugar in the sweetened condensed milk helps give this sorbet it’s perfectly smooth texture.
You can also made this dairy free and vegan by using dairy free condensed milk!
How to serve this easy fruity sorbet?
Well, you can serve this raspberry sorbet in a few different ways. You can either go with the couple scoops in a little cup and call it a day or do what I did in the image above!
Whip up some meringue, scoop your raspberry sorbet in a cone then top it with the meringue you made. Gently brûlée the meringue using a torch to get the perfectly toasted outside and most delicious inside ever. No need to buy store bought cone ice cream when you have this beauty!
This meringue technique works because the raspberries have a natural tanginess to them and the sweetness of the meringue helps balance that berry flavor so well. To make meringue check out my How to make meringue cookies, you can follow the exact same steps but instead of baking the meringue use it to top your ice cream!
Ingredients for the best raspberry sorbet
To make this raspberry sorbet recipe at home you will need a few very simple ingredients:
- Sweetened condensed milk
- Vanilla (optional so this recipe can stay an easy 2-ingredient recipe)
Since we are not using the whole can of sweetened condensed milk, make yourself some more ice cream using that leftover sweetened condensed milk. Try out our favorite Chocolate No Churn Ice Cream with Brownies or Vanilla Bean Dulce de Leche Ice Cream | NO CHUR!
