If you're stuck for dessert ideas, have you thought about sorbet this summer?

Learning how to make sorbet at home is easier than you think and doesn't always call for an ice-cream maker.

Sorbet ingredients are extremely simple, usually consisting purely of fruit, sugar and water which makes sorbet's much lighter than their dairy counterpart, ice-cream. Infact, gluten and dairy free, sorbet was also one of the original desserts used to satisfy a vegan audience.

Sorbets are commonly found as a palette cleanser between courses at a lengthy dinner but are also ideal way to end a dinner party where a refreshing and light dessert is called for.
