Sorbet is a frozen fruit dessert typically made with a sweetener and a fruit puree. Unlike gelato, it is made vegan, meaning that it contains no animal products, and it tends to be slightly softer than gelato. It is also often lower in fat than many other frozen fruit desserts, as it contains no milk or cream to raise the fat content. It is also sometimes seen on men...us as sorbetto, to distinguish it from gelato. Sorbet is made in an assortment of sweet and savory flavors for a wide variety of culinary situations, and is readily available in most grocery stores.
