What is Sorbet?

Sorbets are frozen desserts made entirely of sweetened water and fruit. It is often churned in the same way as standard ice cream varieties to make it easy to scoop and serve. This refreshing dairy free treat boasts a high vitamin C content and immune-boosting antioxidants depending on the type of fruit featured.

This delightful dish has a pretty fascinating history. There is evidence of the first sorbet recipe dating back to the first century Rome and Persia. Although, there have been several alternate origin stories that scholars debate today. Its name derives from the Italian word “sorbetto,” referring to the dessert crafted by Antonio Lantini. Sorbet is also often called an “Italian ice” or “water ice” due to its roots in Naples, Italy.

Is Sorbet Keto?

Traditional sorbets are not considered keto-friendly. Many store-bought varieties contain artificial sweeteners and fruits with high sugar contents, such as cherries or oranges. Therefore, making your own batch at home is best to ensure all the ingredients featured align with your keto diet.

Luckily, our easy keto recipe incorporates a low-carb simple syrup that does not contain sugar by the brand ChocZero. In addition, the sugar-free sorbet also features a ketogenic diet approved fruit, strawberries.

What is the Difference Between Ice Cream and Sorbet?

Both sorbet and ice cream are delicious frozen treats. Although, both delicacies are different in terms of taste, texture, and preparation. For starters, sorbet is completely dairy-free whereas most ice cream varieties contain eggs and dairy in their recipes. It is also much higher in fat than sorbet. On the other hand, ice cream is an excellent (and tasty) source of calcium.

Ice cream, especially store-bought types, boast high amounts of carbohydrates and sugars. If you are looking for a low-carb alternative, check out our incredible creamy vanilla ice cream recipe. Although, please note certain store-bought brands of sorbet can even contain more sugar than ice cream. Be sure to carefully check the label before purchasing or make your own version at home!

Are Strawberries Keto?

Yes! Strawberries are one of the few fruits approved for the ketogenic diet. The fiber-packed fruit only contains approximately 12 grams of carbs. Strawberries also boast 8.7 grams of net carbs, one of the lowest out of most keto-friendly fruits. Therefore, feel free to indulge in your favorite red fruit without any guilt.

If you are a big fan of strawberries, we recommend taking a look at some of our other recipes containing the fruit. A few of our favorites include these keto strawberry lemonade popsicles and our keto version of the iconic strawberry shortcake.

  1. If the sorbet recipe were to be used to make popsicle bars instead would you use a little less liquid or a little more?

    1. Probably a little more liquid so they would pour into the mold better, but this should work even as written if you are able to spoon the mixture into the mold.
