Raspberry-Ginger Sorbet - The Lemon Bowl

Summer is right around the corner and I couldn’t be more excited. After an extremely brutal winter, I plan to soak up every minute!

Raspberry Ginger Sorbet by The Lemon Bowl

When my friends at Driscoll’s asked me to create a dessert recipe, I knew immediately that I wanted to make a sorbet. When the weather warms up, I love nothing more than ending my day with a tart, tangy, and sweet raspberry sorbet. In fact, indulging in a little dessert at the end of each day is one of the main reasons I am able to maintain long term healthy lifestyle habits.

Ice Cream Maker wtih Sorbet - The Lemon Bowl

Believe it or not, homemade sorbet is surprisingly easy to make. Since it can be made well in advance, it is also ideal for summer entertaining or casual backyard get-togethers.

Raspberry Ginger Lime Sorbet - The Lemon Bowl

My Raspberry Ginger Sorbet balances the fruitiness of the raspberries with bright lime juice and spicy ginger. Driscoll’s raspberries are the star ingredient in this dessert and I like to let the natural berry flavor shine but you can add up to ½ cup additional sugar to the simple syrup for an even sweeter sorbet. Likewise, the more sugar you add, the smoother the end result. Personally, I would rather have smooth thighs than smooth dessert.

My son typically eats raspberries by the handful but as you can tell, he loved this sorbet just as much as he loves eating the berries.

Your spoon is waiting.

    Ginger and Lime sound like a great addition to the raspberry sorbet. I love a little tang and not a super sweet sorbet. Pinned and look forward to trying!
