Sorbet is a refreshing way to cool down on a hot summer day. Skip making ice cream in an ice cream maker and make this frozen fruit sorbet using your Vitamix blender instead.

The great part about this recipe is it’s totally customizable. You can easily turn any frozen fruit into a sorbet with a Vitamix or any other type of high-speed blender. Simply blend the frozen fruit together with non-dairy milk or juice and you’re done!

Why You Need This Recipe

  • It tastes like a sweet treat but it’s really just fruit. Most frozen fruits are plenty sweet on their own and don’t need added sweetener.
  • You can make any flavor you want! Try raspberry, mango, strawberry, peach, pineapple, or blueberry.
  • It’s gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free.

Key Ingredients

Frozen fruit will thicken up this sorbet naturally since it’s already so cold without the need for ice. You can use any type of frozen fruit you like or even freeze any excess fruit you have on hand.

Non-dairy milk helps make the sorbet smooth without making it too thin.

Recipe Tips & Substitutions

  • If you are using a fruit that is on the tart side (like raspberries), then you may need to add 1-2 tablespoons of a liquid sweetener like maple syrup to help sweeten it up.
  • If you don’t have dairy-free milk on hand, you can also use fruit juice like orange juice or pineapple juice instead. In a pinch, you can use water, but it will dilute the fruit flavor.
  • This frozen treat is best served just after making it. You can freeze it for up to several hours for a firmer texture, but it will freeze very hard if left in the freezer more than 4 hours. If that happens, you can set it on the countertop for 15 minutes to soften before eating.

FAQs

Can I use fresh fruit to make sorbet?

If you have a surplus of ripe fruit and need to use it up it’s no problem! Simply cut it up and freeze on it on a parchment lined sheet pan. Once the fruit is completely frozen follow the recipe as directed. You can also bag it up and freeze for later.

Can I combine different types of fruit together?

Of course! Try to pair fruits that go well together like mango-pineapple, strawberry-peach, or mixed berry.

What Vitamix model do you recommend?

All are great, but I have a Vitamix Explorian.

Can I use a food processor to make this homemade sorbet?

Yes, but you will have to stop and scrape down the sides several times until the fruit is fully blended.
