About this recipe: This sorbet is fruity, tart and refreshing. Cranberries are heated with water, sugar and raspberries, passed through a sieve, blended with cherry juice, lime juice and orange juice and frozen. It makes the perfect light dessert.
Very refreshing and delicious! I was unable to find fresh or frozen cranberries because they are out of season, so I doubled the frozen raspberries. I do not have an ice cream maker so I used a shallow glass dish which I place in the freezer and stirred every half hour for the first 2 hours. This procedure worked great. In the fall, I will be sure to freeze my own cranberries just for this recipe. This recipe makes for not only a refreshing delicious dessert but a delightful looking one as well. Thank you Larkspur for such a fantastic recipe! - 13 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Wow! This is SO good - perfect sweetness/tartness, smooth, excellent - not to mention an amazing color! The ingredients can be a little tricky to find at this time of year. I already had cranberries in my freezer, thank goodness. My regular grocery store doesn't carry unsweetened raspberries, but I found them at another store. There was only one brand of cherry juice that I could find, so that's what I used. Each of the ingredients is well worth working for. I'm amazed and impressed. Thanks for the recipe!! - 21 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made one switch out--I used Truvia in place of the sugar (Using Google and quick math, I came up with 42 packets). I used RW Knudsen Tart Cherry Juice in this recipe and fresh lime juice. This was a little work but totally worth it in the end. I do not have an ice cream maker, I actually froze this in a freezer friendly container. After it firmed up, I ran it through the blender again and re-froze. Even without an ice cream maker, this turned out fantastic. It was a little sweet with the Truvia--what I'd do next time is cut back just a touch. Still we enjoyed it, eating it all in one night! - 26 May 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
