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.

Hi Gemma
Would I get the same result if I blend fresh fruits instead of frozen ones and then let them freeze over night ?

My husband is a huge fan of orange sherbert. I know this isn’t quite the same thing, but do you think it would be possible to use a can (or 2 depending on size) of mandarin oranges to make an orange sorbet?

I cannot wait to try these and other flavors. Besides the watermelon are there any other fruits you would not recommend trying with this?

I made the mango sorbet and the strawberry sorbet. Absolutely delicious! And they feel lighter and healthier than other desserts (not sure if that’s really true, but I like to think so!). Everyone loved them! I will try banana next.
My KitchenAid food processor did struggle a little and became quite hot with the solid frozen fruit, so next time, I think I will leave the fruit out for 10-15 minutes to let it thaw a little.

These sorbet recipes are easy to make and have a wonderful texture. In a week I have made Strawberry-Lime, Cantaloupe-mint, and Mango-lime. The mango-lime was hands down my favorite and the creamiest, but all have been a guilt free taste of summer. Today I am making peach(for me!) and chocolate-banana for my husband. Thank you so much for this summer treat and all the other tidbits for high quality kitchen basics!

I made blueberry sorbet. It was easy and so good. I ended up topping it with a little chocolate syrup, homemade of course. Blueberries and chocolate are so good together!
