Bright, light and fresh-tasting a sorbet may make you think of summer, but even in the colder winter months it can still be a perfect dessert or treat option for your family. Containing no dairy, sorbets are a dense and flavor-packed option that can be served in the winter and summer months.
However, you may find that many store bought sorbets will have a lot of added sugar, even if they have significantly less sugar than ice cream. But did you know that you can easily make a no-added sugar sorbet at home with the aid of an ice cream maker?
Our simple and easy recipe takes the much-loved flavor of citrus to create a bright and mouthwatering sorbet that your whole family will enjoy. By using zero-calorie stevia instead of sugar to sweeten up the juice from clementine oranges, we have eliminated all of the added sugar and some of the calories from this syrupy treat.
