About a month ago, I shared with you this AMAZING Cabernet Simple Syrup that is great drizzled over ice cream or fresh fruit as well as to make your favorite cocktails!

How did I use my Cabernet Simple Syrup?
Make sorbet of course!
Yes sorbet and ice cream can easily be made at home…even without an ice cream maker.
I don’t own an ice cream maker and yet I’ve made a bunch of delicious frozen treats that include the following.
Ice Cream Recipes
- Cherimoya (Custard Apple) Ice Cream
- Purple Yam (Ube) Ice Cream
- Lucuma Ice Cream
- Lemongrass Ice Cream
- Strawberry Hibiscus Ice Cream
It is definitely the season for these summer treats. In these hot summer days, making ice cream, sorbet or popsicles has been a weekly occurrence. How about you?
Have you ever wondered what differentiates all these summer treats. What’s the difference between ice cream and gelato? What’s the difference between sorbet and sherbert?
Well if you are making these delicious summer recipes every week you want to strike a balance so that they are not all high fat versions of these frozen treats!
So here’s the low down!
Traditional American style ice cream has at least 10% milkfat. It is churned at a rapid rate, which introduces a lot of air. This air causes a lack of density, which is why American ice cream melts much faster than Italian gelato and does not hold its shape as well.
Gelato is Italian ice cream. Gelato is creamier and more dense than American style ice cream. Gelato generally uses more milk and less cream than American style ice cream and does not include egg yolks. This results in an ice cream with only about 5% milkfat.
It also is churned at a much slower rate, introducing very little air. This yields the dense result, which makes is melt at a slower rate.
Sorbet is generally made with two ingredients – fruit and sugar, although some flavor additions may sometimes be added.
If you are looking for a dairy free option, this is your best frozen option!
Sherbert is made with basically three ingredients – fruit, sugar and cream. However, it has a much lower cream content than ice cream.
Generally, sherbert has about 2% milkfat, so if you are looking for a low fat ice cream, sherbert is your best choice!
You may think frozen yogurt is super healthy and you are getting all those pro biotics right….sorry to burst your bubble, but the freezing process kills all of that healthy bacteria.
However, frozen yogurt is usually a lower fat option that does not include eggs or cream.
Not only is July #nationalicecreammonth but it is also Berry Season. Bright, sweet and juicy berries are everywhere.
Although I used blackberries and raspberries in this sorbet, you can make variations with other berries like blueberries or strawberries.
With just a few ingredients, this sorbet is so quick and easy to put together!
Berries and red wine are the perfect marriage!
Don’t you just want to lick that spoon of Cabernet Mixed Berry Sorbet!

This recipe was great and so easy to make. I appreciate that I don’t have to include dairy.

Mir! I want to reach out and pick it up. Looks absolutely delicious and a perfect snack for the aftrenoons.

Looks delicious with the flavour of cabernet sauce .. Which other sauce can be used if we cannot find this one
I provided the link to make the cabernet simple syrup but you can also just use regular simple syrup.
I’d never made homemade sorbet before this recipe, but I can definitely say I probably won’t be buying store-bought anymore! This was so easy and DELISH!
sorbet is so easy – definitely customize it as home with different flavors!
I love that this is dairy free, and SO easy to make. My family was pretty impressed with me 🙂
Great recipe! I also love the break down of different types of frozen treats.

Amazing and so easy to make! And that syrup…so good. This was perfect for date night! We will definitely be making this again soon.
The syrup is also great to make cocktails with. You should definitely try utilizing the syrup that way also!
Sorbet is one of my favorites so I enjoyed making this recipe!!
Isn’t it fabulous on hot summer days!
Call me bougie, but I served this in wine glasses and enjoyed it out on the balcony. It really tastes like a frozen glass of wine!
what a great idea! I’m going to serve it that way next time!
I eat dairy free and I appreciate how amazing this recipe is! It’s so easy to whip up and perfect for a light, refreshing dessert!
so glad you enjoyed it
The Cabernet syrup is a game-changer for this recipe! I will be keeping it on hand from now on.
yes the syrup is good with so many things!
We generally eat all icecreams and lollies here in this season as otherwise it is too cold for the kids ,and we are literally enjoying everyday. So looking for different flavours and this sorbet looks like another great addition to our daily treats. Love the beautiful colour.
thanks – you should definitely add this one to your repertoire
