Sorbet is a fruity frozen dessert that usually, but not always, vegan. Honey and milk products may make an unwelcome appearance, so always check the ingredients.)
A low-fat and cholesterol-free alternative to ice cream, sorbet is made from frozen pureed fruits, sugar and water, resulting in a dense and very flavorful dessert. You can buy sorbet at almost any market, as well as at most ice cream parlors. Both Ben & Jerry’s and Häagen-Dazs make vegan sorbets that are sold at their ice cream parlors and at supermarkets.
Sorbet is often confused with sherbet. But sherbet is invariably off-limits to vegans, since it invariably contains dairy products.
