Is Sherbet Vegan? A Vegan Sherbert Guide With Recipes

Posted by Aaron Seminoff on

What Is Sherbet?

Sherbert happens to be a very common misspelling of the frozen dessert sherbet. However, if you hear people pronouncing it, either way, they are all talking about the same delicious frozen dessert.

However, there is also a bit of confusion when it comes to sherbets and sorbets. Sorbet is like Sherbet's vegan cousin. Unlike Sherbets, Sorbets do not contain any dairy products which makes it the perfect treat for those who happen to be lactose-intolerant. Click here to learn more about Sherbets.

Common Sherbet/Sherbert Ingredients

  • Ice cream
  • Milk
  • Sugar
  • Egg whites
  • Gelatin
  • Sweetened fruit juice

Some people might think that it is near impossible to create a tasty frozen dessert without the help of an ice cream or milk foundation. However, as a vegan, I've learned to be creative and adventurous! Below are some delightful, mouthwatering sorbet recipes.
