Sorbet is similar to ice cream, but unlike ice cream, it doesn’t contain milk products. It is often used as an alternative to ice cream for those on a diet because it doesn’t contain any fat, making many good recipie choices for people who are lactose intolerant or vegan 🙂
It’s basically just frozen water or juice sweetened with fruit, chocolate and sometime alcohol like liqueur or wine.
I m gonna give you here the recipie of the pineapple sorbet recipe (my favorite!), taken from ” Cooking Light”.
