It’s sweet, fruity and tingly all at once, a completely girly delight.  Have I said enough to make you want to taste? I hope I have convinced you to try your hand at making this icy treat, as I am sure it will feature regularly in our household over summer.

I served the sherbet with extra raspberries and a dollop of cream which added an even creamier aspect to the dessert.

Method:

Pre-chill a metal container in the freezer.

Place sugar and water in a saucepan and stir over the heat until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and cool in the fridge.

Making sorbet and gelato

Using a sieve and a mixing bowl, push the raspberries through the sieve with the back of a dessert spoon to remove all the seeds.

Combine the cooled sugar syrup with the raspberry puree and the Fruche and mix with a stick blender until combined. Pour the mixture into the pre chilled metal container.

Use the stick blender once again to break up the forming sherbet. Return the sherbet to the freezer. This process must be completed three times at two hour intervals.  Allow the sherbet to fully set. Serve.
