Raspberry Sorbet You Can Make in the Food Processor

How to make sorbet in a food processor

Thank you to Safest Choice Eggs for sponsoring this post.

I named this frozen confection Raspberry Dream Sorbet because once you whirl together the raspberries, simple syrup, and egg whites, what results is nothing short of dreamy. A raspberry sorbet you can make in the food processor, it’s cold, tangy, and luscious. The fact that it will only take you about five minutes of hands-on time, that you don’t need an ice cream maker, and it calls for just three ingredients means it’s a dream to make, too.

A Different Kind of Sorbet

This sorbet departs from typical preparations in that it’s made with the whole fruit instead of just juice. Using the entire raspberry, seeds and all, has a couple of upsides: It’s less fussy to make (no straining through a sieve). And you get all the nutritional benefits of the whole fruit, most notably, the fiber. It also means your sorbet will have a bit of texture from all those tiny seeds (something nobody in my crowd seemed to mind or even notice for that matter).

Sorbet in the Food Processor

Learning how to make sorbet in a food processor involves just three steps.

  1. You start by heating sugar and water in a saucepan just until it liquifies into simple syrup.
  2. Then, blend the syrup with frozen raspberries in a food processor.
  3. Add a couple of pasteurized eggs whites (such as Safest Choice) and let it run a good while to kick the texture up from creamy to luxurious. Since the eggs in this recipe don’t get cooked, using pasteurized whites minimizes risk of food borne.

Make the Simply Syrup Ahead

The only waiting that’s required for this recipe is for the simple syrup to cool. You can expedite the process by transferring it from the saucepan to a heat-proof bowl and setting that in a bowl of ice water. Alternatively, make the simple syrup ahead of time and leave it at room temperature until you’re ready to make your raspberry sorbet.

You can spoon your frosty treat straight from the food processor into a bowl (like luscious raspberry soft serve. Alternatively, transfer it to a container and freeze for several hours. It will firm up and be perfect to scoop onto a cone.

Enjoy! Preferably with someone you love.

What could be dreamier than that?

Raspberry Dream Sorbet

An easy-to-make homemade sorbet make right in an ordinary food processor. You don't need an ice cream maker or a lot of time, since this comes together in a snap. You can make your simple syrup ahead of time if you like, leaving it at room temperature until you're ready to make sorbet.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups frozen raspberries (one 12-ounce bag)
  • 2 pasteurized egg whites such as Safest Choice (or 1/4 cup pasteurized egg whites from a carton)

Instructions

  1. Put the water and sugar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat and cook until the sugar completely dissolves and the liquid is clear, making a simple syrup. Pour into a glass pitcher or bowl to cool. You can expedite the cooling process by setting the simple syrup in a bowl of ice water. 

  2. Once the simple syrup has cooled to room temperature, pour it into the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Add the frozen raspberries (straight from the freezer) and run the processor for 1 minute, scraping down the sides as needed). Add the egg whites and let it run another 1 to 2 minutes until the mixture turns light in color with a luscious texture, scraping the sides and bottoms as needed.

  3. Serve immediately (it will be very soft) or spoon it into a freezer-friendly container, cover, and freeze until firm, at least 3 hours.

Recipe Notes

If you don't have Safest Choice eggs, you can use 1/4 cup of pasteurized egg whites.

This looks yummy! Do you think you could make it with other berries? If so, are there any adjustments to the recipe?

Thanks,

Pam

Yes to other berries, and other fruits as well. You may have to adjust the amount of sugar a bit depending on the sweetness of the fruit. I would also rely on the weight of the fruit rather than the cup measure since that will be more precise…so use 12 ounces of frozen strawberries rather than 2 cups. I think mango would be delicious and super creamy. Pineapple as well. Let me know if you do and how it goes!

This looks fantastic for a party dessert – how long will it keep in the freezer?

Probably best within a few days…but up to 1 week.

This looks wonderful! Great recipe. Just pinned it! Where does one buy pasteurized egg whites–and could I simply use the whites from two pasteurized eggs?

katiemorford

Yes, Safest Choice eggs are pasteurized eggs. That’s my preference. You can look here to see where they are sold near you: http://www.safeeggs.com/

If you can’t find pasteurized eggs, the pasteurized whites are sold in cartons where eggs are sold in most supermarkets.

This looks great and so simple. It reminds of the one ingredients banana ice cream recipe (http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make-creamy-ice-cream-w-93414) to which I add chocolate chips. Look forward to making! Thanks.

Thanks for the link…similar idea. Bananas are so sweet on their own, they don’t require anything extra…although chocolate chips never hurt! 🙂

It’s even hot in SF…this is the perfect antidote !

One of my favorite things about your recipes is, not only are they just as good as they sound, they are “do-able” for someone who is no where near the cook you are. This recipe was as easy as you say, and came out terrific.
Thanks Katie,

I love hearing that Cynthia. I try to make them simple and doable…but you never know.

If I wanted to make a frozen yogurt, do you think that by replacing the water with yogurt would still have it turn out ‘smooth’ due to the egg whites..? Or would you suppose I have to use alcohol or gelatin to keep it from turning into ice..? (I would be using 2% greek yogurt)

05.09.2013 at3:11 PM #

katiemorford

Hmmmm…I think it’s worth a try. Keep a couple of things in mind: 1) yogurt is tangy so may affect the sweetness level 2) You may need to add a little bit of some liquid in order to get it to whirl in the food processor. Let me know if you try it.

I made this last night and it was so delicious and easy! I literally made it with one hand while I was holding the baby with the other. Thanks for such a great recipe, I foresee myself making this all summer with all sorts of fruits!

I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something relating to this.

Delicious!!!! I chose this recipe because it doesn’t call for a ton of sugar. Sweetness and tartness are well balanced. Thanks.

Raw eggs of any sort should not be eaten do bacteria chickens carry. Perhap processed egg whites.

That’s right. I recommend using pasteurized eggs for this!
