How to Make Fresh Fruit Sorbet

I happened to have strawberries, blueberries, and grapes on hand, so those are the fruits I chose to use in my sorbet.

Fresh Strawberry, Blueberry, and Grape Sorbet

Sorbets are so deliciously refreshing, especially on hot and humid summer days. You can make them as sweet as you want, depending on the fruits you choose.

I happened to have strawberries, blueberries, and grapes on hand, so those are the fruits I chose to use in my sorbet. Other fruits that work well for sorbets include watermelon, peaches, cherries, kiwi, and mangoes. You can combine fruits or just use one.

I wouldn't use bananas, plums, pineapples, apples, or pears, though. The consistency wouldn't be right.

Fresh fruit sorbet is so easy to make. In no time at all, you can enjoy delicious cups of cool freshness. Happy summer!
