There’s so many different variations of sorbet you can make in the Thermomix. This is one of our favourites, and I thought I’d post it since Christmas is coming up, and I’m thinking of red and green sorbets and drinks and breads and dips…  This would be lovely with a bright red raspberry or cherry sorbet served beside it!

So simple


  1. Yes. so simple! And refreshing. Just looking at that sorbet of yours cools me right down Jo. There is much to be said for the simplicity of such things that I/we never made before getting Thermomix. Before Bimby, I for one, did not ever feel the urge for fresh sorbet as I do now. Its SO easy to do this with Thermomix that you can even have sorbet as a spur-of-the-moment late night snack. See — silly as it sounds, life really is MORE FUN with Thermomix!

    I agree – it’s just so much FUN!! Even after 6 years I still get excited when I’m cooking with my Thermomix! 😀

    Hi Jo – can you successfully freeze sorbet?

  4. Jo Whitton says:

    Hi Karin, you can freeze it, you just have to thaw it out for 10 minutes or so before you eat it. You could try adding another egg white to make it softer (less icy), which helps it to keep a better texture once frozen. Fruity Dream freezes better – it stays soft because the egg whites have been all fluffed up.

    Can you do sorbets and icecreams without eggs? We are trying to stay away from animal products.

  6. Jo Whitton says:

    Yes, just leave out the egg white and it will still work, it will just be a little less creamy, more grainy like a granita. Or you can add a frozen banana instead of the egg, which makes it more creamy. Or some frozen coconut cream- that’s great for creaminess too. 🙂

    Can you substitute maple syrup for the raspadura? If so, how much?
