Homemade Raspberry Sorbet


Recipe Info

  • Servings : 4
  • Prep Time : 60m
  • Ready In : 60m


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 600g fresh or frozen raspberries (thaw if frozen) (can substitute for other fruit)
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp vodka, optional (Alcohol does not freeze so it helps keeps the sorbet smooth and gives it a less grainy texture)


Step 1

Create a simple syrup by bringing the sugar and water up to a boil until the sugar dissolves. Cool.

Step 2

Put the raspberries, syrup and lemon in a food processor and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture through a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth to remove the pith.

Step 3

Pour the raspberry puree onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet and freeze until set. Break the frozen puree into pieces and blend again in the food processor (separate into batches, if needed).

Step 4

If possible, freeze on the cookie sheet once more and blend again. Serve immediately or freeze. If frozen, remove from the freezer and let it soften for a few minutes before serving.
