Raspberry and Lemon Sorbet

Raspberry and Lemon Sorbet

On holiday my husband Howard and son Ted will normally eat an ice cream. If sorbet is on offer one of them will normally always try it. They love it. We are going on holiday again soon and the other day I was wondering whether they would be eating sorbet on our next trip. I think this thought made me think about making my own.

We recently found erythritol in our local supermarket. Erythritol is a sugar that is easier for the body to digest. It’s also healthier for the teeth and gums too. Although, like sugar, you shouldn’t eat to much of it. Therefore this sorbet is slightly sour. It’s yummy but you can taste the lemons. Ted, Howard and I really enjoyed it though. We hope you will enjoy it too.

Gifts from Grandpa is my NEW recipe book – out NOW and available to buy on Amazon for only £19.99. Plus £1 from the sale of each book will go to Crisis the homeless charity.

Raspberry and Lemon Sorbet was a yummy dessert we all enjoyed. My son Ted has asked me to make this again so that’s how much he enjoyed it. It was very easy to prepare and cook. It does take a little while to make but the effort is worth the results. If you love sour then this sorbet is for you. However you decide to eat this sorbet, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
