Enjoy this True Blue Raspberry Sherbet for a light and refreshing treat that the whole family will love! It is dairy free, gluten free and has just 6 ingredients.

If you follow a dairy-free diet or are just trying to eat less dairy, I have a treat for you today.

I am excited to be sharing the launch of my friend Alisa Fleming’s latest book with you! Eat Dairy Free is THE resource you need to follow a dairy-free lifestyle.

This beautiful book has 110 delicious recipes (including this True Blue Raspberry Sherbet), all of which have thoroughly tested options for Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, Peanut-Free, and Soy-Free.

Vegan? No problem! Eighty-four of the recipes are vegan, and half of those that aren’t vegan could be made with vegan meat alternatives.

One look at the beautiful full-color photos and you will realize that a dairy-free lifestyle does not have to mean sacrifice!

I love that the book focuses on real food. There are no store-bought dairy substitutes needed. This means that you don’t need to go to three different stores to hunt for dairy-free cheese, sour cream or other specialty alternatives. Alisa has even included a super-easy recipe for homemade milk beverage.

True Blue Raspberry Sherbet

Everywhere I turn, food manufacturers are adding “blue raspberry” to their flavor lineups. Since it is nothing more than blue food coloring and sugar, I decided to create this sweet and lightly creamy dessert that highlights the taste of all-natural blue(berry)-raspberry.


  • 3/4 to 1 cup blueberries optionally pureed and strained
  • 3/4 to 1 cup raspberry puree about 8 ounces raspberries, pureed and strained
  • 14 ounces full-fat coconut milk or coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar can substitute agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum or guar gum optional, to help prevent ice crystals


  1. Put the berries, puree, coconut milk or cream, sugar, lemon juice, and gum (if using) in your blender and blend until smooth.

  2. Refrigerate the berry mixture for at least 1 hour. Ensure that you have frozen the insert for your ice cream maker for at least 24 hours, if directed in the manufacturer’s instructions.

  3. Churn the berry mixture in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

  4. Pack the soft sherbet into a freezer-safe container and freeze for several hours or overnight for hard-packed ice cream. If it becomes too solid, let it sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before scooping.
