This Raspberry Sorbet Makes a Healthy Yet Decadent Dessert

Orange blossom water adds a lovely floral note to your sorbet.

Even local, in-season berries can be sour, so a little superfine sugar and honey will offset any acidity in this jewel-toned easy take on sorbet. You can adjust the sweeteners or leave them out entirely, depending on the sweetness of the fruit. Puréeing the whole fruit in a food processor – seeds and all – retains all the fibre and eliminates the need for an ice cream maker.
