Special treat this week! RAINBOW SHERBET! When it comes to sweet treats, sherbet is a delightful and refreshing option that often gets overshadowed by its more famous counterparts like ice cream. But don't be fooled; this fizzy and fruity concoction has a unique charm all its own, offering some key differences from traditional ice cream. The Essence of Sherbet Sherbet is a semi-frozen dessert that strikes a perfect balance between ice cream and sorbet. It's lighter than traditional ice cream, yet more indulgent than a sorbet. This makes it an ideal choice for those who crave something sweet and refreshing but don't want the heaviness that can accompany a rich ice cream. The Difference: Fat Content One of the most significant differences between ice cream and sherbet lies in their fat content. While ice cream is known for its rich and creamy texture, it contains a higher percentage of milkfat, making it denser and heavier. In contrast, sherbet is fruit-based, containing very little dairy fat. This results in a lighter, more refreshing dessert, making it a preferable choice for those looking to reduce their fat intake. Please note, however, that it is not dairy free. We carry sorbet for our dairy free customers.
