A Healthy Sorbet Recipe for the Post-Holiday Season

Whether you love the cold weather or you're waiting impatiently for summer to show its face again, there's no denying that every season is the right season for a delicious frozen treat. But if you, like many others this holiday season, made a resolution to stay healthy, ice cream may not be the best option.

Fortunately, sorbet can keep both your sweet tooth and your new year's resolution satisfied. While it's typically created in a similar fashion to ice cream, it's actually made without any dairy products! And what's more, you can make it yourself at home.

Ready to sorbet the winter blues away?

Cranberry Orange Sorbet

What You'll Need:

  • 6 cups cranberries 
  • 1 ½ cups orange juice 
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar 
Time to Put It All Together!

  • Cook your cranberries, sugar, and OJ down together in a saucepan over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes. 

  • Transfer your mixture (which should be smelling delicious by now) into a blender and mix until smooth. 

  • Chill your now smooth mixture overnight. 

  • Once your mixture has set, process it through an ice cream maker for 20 to 25 minutes. 

  • Transfer your newly churned sorbet into a baking pan and freeze overnight once more. 

To serve, simply take an ice cream scoop to your newly made sorbet and plate with a candied orange peel or some craisins. Enjoy!
