Raspberry Ice Cream

American Raspberry Sherbet

Our Raspberry Ice Cream is really a Raspberry Sherbet. Sherbet is less tart than a sorbet but still creamy like ice cream from the addition of milk. We don’t use cream because that is too heavy.  For summer, we prefer something light and fruity.

The great thing about sherbet is not just that it a lovely dessert but it also makes a variety of punches, shakes and floats. Here, we mixed our Raspberry Sherbet with a bit of Sprite as a cooling afternoon treat to beat the heat.

Orange Sherbet is the most common sherbet in America then lime and raspberry.  There is even Rainbow Sherbet which combines the lot.

How to make Raspberry Ice Cream

To make Raspberry Ice Cream, make the syrup base and then mix with the milk of your choice and freeze.  We used whole milk here but it is just as good with Oat, Almond or Soy Milk if you prefer dairy-free.

With an ice cream maker, all of our ice creams are simple to make, preservative free and require just a little bit of planning.  I recommend the Andrew James as a starter ice cream maker but you can also get an attachment for your KitchenAid Stand Mixer. We have also curated a selection of moulds and other products to make your homemade ice cream a special treat.
