And everyone is surely in need of cold and frozen desserts
Ice cream takes a big part during summer, but do you know that you can substitute that by sorbet or sherbet??
Let’s talk about sorbet and sherbet here for people who don’t know what are these
Sorbet is a frozen dessert that is made of fruit puree and can include some flavorings. It can be whipped to lighten its texture. Sorbet contains no milk.
Like a sorbet, sherbet is a fruit puree product but milk is added for creaminess. But it contains no more than 2% butterfat.
1/2 CUP OF SORBET: 70 calories, 0 grams of fat
1/2 CUP OF SHERRBET: 110 calories, 1.2 grams of fat
The amount of calories and sugar in your sorbet depends on the flavor you get.
Usually sorbet is not high in fiber, and can contain up to 25 grams of sugar but at the end it is considered a very good substitute to heavy and creamy desserts!
Try a fruit flavor sorbet rather than the chocolate flavor!
Unlike ice cream and sherbet which contain milk, Sorbet is a great option for people who are lactose intolerant
