Refreshing, packed with flavour and easy to make – a simple fruit sorbet has everything going for it!
Discover how to make sorbet using your favourite flavours and ingredients, and keep this handy recipe up your sleeve for dinner party puds, or a simple summer treat. At its heart, sorbet is simply a frozen fruit syrup, but you can ramp it up a level and include whipped egg white or even mascarpone for a creamier result.

The incredible colour of fresh plums make this a spectacular pud. This delicious sorbet includes whipped egg whites, which gives the frozen results a thicker and creamier texture. Make it in an ice-cream machine, then simply serve and enjoy!
PINEAPPLE MINT SHERBET
A kinda cross between a sorbet and an ice cream, this zingy sherbet is lovely with fresh fruit. It has beautiful fragrant elderflower running through it, as well as a dollop of mascarpone cheese that provides the distinctive texture. Serve with raspberries.
RHUBARB SORBET WITH PISTACHIO
Sweet and tart rhubarb sorbet with salty, crunchy brittle – these flavours and textures go mad in your mouth! We love the punchy pink colour or the sorbet, and the pistachio brittle is a winning little recipe in its own right.
