Hi Bold Bakers!
The weather is starting to heat up here in Los Angeles so I’m getting ready for a season full of frozen treats!
The recipe that seemed to ignite your love of Big & Bold frozen desserts was my 2 Ingredient No Machine Ice Cream Recipe. It’s an Ice Cream that is made simply with Whipped Cream and Condensed Milk. The results are a light and fluffy blank canvas to which you can add any flavors your heart desires.
My Homemade Sorbet is made using the exact same logic and engineering as my ice cream recipe. You need an ingredient (e.g. frozen fruit) to give you a thick base and add liquid sugar (e.g. condensed milk) to help it freeze. So I thought, why can’t I apply my ice cream technique to a sorbet? Well, you can, I did, it works and it’s awesome!
By definition my recipe is technically more of a sherbet than a sorbet because it contains milk but personally I think it is more of a sorbet than anything.
Condensed Milk is an important ingredient in this recipe and can’t be left out. If you cannot buy it easily then I’ll do you one better and show you how you can make you own. The recipe is very simple and probably more cost effective than buying it in the store. You can find my Homemade Condensed Milk recipe here.
Although I use condensed milk this recipe can be made Vegan by using Dairy Free Condensed Milk. It’s simply made using coconut milk and sugar so this condensed milk is perfect for sorbet and also my Dairy Free Ice Cream recipe. If you do dairy free baking (or just like the taste of coconut) my Dairy Free Condensed Milk recipe is really handy to have a stash in the fridge and it stays fresh for weeks.
Now that you know the basis for my recipe, you’ll find below 5 incredible flavor ideas featured in my Homemade Sorbet video. Be sure to check them all out and feel free to experiment to create any new favorites.
Also, you can buy the same ice cream containers I use here on Amazon and check out a few of my favorite frozen treat accessories below. Plus, you can make your own Sorbet Labels with my template here.
Sometimes simplicity is the best option because this flavor is like a burst of fresh raspberries in every creamy bite. Find my Raspberry Sorbet recipe here.
When I think of sorbet it conjures images of lovely fresh flavors and that’s exactly what this one is all about. You can find my Cantaloupe & Mint Sorbet recipe here.
A zest of a lime can lift any flavor into something extraordinary so just wait until you taste this Strawberry & Lime Sorbet. Find my Strawberry & Lime Sorbet recipe here.
Combining these two sweet and unique fruits in one dessert is a tropical double whammy for your taste buds. Find my Mango & Passion Fruit Sorbet here.
Don’t be fooled, sorbet doesn’t have to be just fruit flavors. This one is a rich decadent treat for any chocolate lover. Find my Chocolate & Banana Sorbet recipe here.
