Quick Recipe for a Raspberry Sorbet Treat

Quick Recipe for a Raspberry Sorbet Treat

To think: An elegant and impressive homemade sorbet in as long as it takes to hit the “Blend” button. This quick recipe calls for only a few simple ingredients and needs no special equipment (like things that require rock salt and ice). Vivid, sweet and tangy–and it’s pretty darn healthy, to boot.

2 cups fresh raspberries (or 1 12-ounce package of frozen)
1/3 cup unsweetened frozen juice concentrate (apple, cherry, grape, etc)
1 to 2 tablespoons honey (optional, if berries are very tart or you want a sweeter result)
1 teaspoon rose water (optional)
1 teaspoon liqueur such as Amaretto or Cointreau (for a little kick, optional)

1. If using fresh berries, rinse and freeze on a tray until frozen hard.

2. Place all ingredients in a blender.

3. Blend just until smooth, but not soupy.

4. Serve immediately, garnished with (organic) rose petals or other edible flowers.

Makes 4 small servings.
