Raspberry-Buttermilk Sherbet

You know what else is refreshing? Sherbet. Specifically, this raspberry buttermilk sherbet. It’s icy and creamy. Light and dense with flavor. It’s the best of both worlds: everything there is to love about the fruitiness of a sorbet combined with the flavor and density of an ice cream. It hits the perfect summer note.

Raspberry-Buttermilk Sherbet

Serves: 4-6 servings

  • 6 cups raspberries (4 to 5 pints)
  • 1/4 cup 100% grape or apple juice
  • 1 cup superfine sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
