Very Berry Sorbet

Jami Nolen

June 14, 2009


Here is a sorbet recipe just in time for summer. Ice cream can load on the pounds but sorbet is usually fat free. This healthy and refreshing treat is the perfect way to cool down this summer.



  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, washed and hulled
  • 1/2 cup fresh blackberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 1/4 cup orange juice with calcium
  • 1 tablespoon Splenda or 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract



  • Place washed berries, juices, Splenda or sugar, and vanilla extract into blender and blend until liquefied.
  • Drain mixture into a flat, freezer-safe 9x9 container.
  • Cover with plastic wrap, making sure wrap touches entire surface and freeze for a couple hours, or until firm.
