I learned something new today. Does everybody know the difference between sorbet and sherbet? I sure didn’t. While looking for an ice cream recipe, I found David Lebovitz’s chocolate sherbet in my bookmarked pages, and he very nicely explained it in his post (see link below). Sherbet contains dairy, whereas a sorbet does not. Otherwise, they have the same ingredients. I knew sorbet was European, and I know we used to eat orange sherbet when I was little..and it was always creamy. I’m not sure if I’ve ever had sorbet. But that’s about as far as my knowledge went.
2 T amaretto (or almond extract is fine, too), optional
In a saucepan, heat the half-and-half with the cocoa powder, agave and truvia, while stirring. Bring to a boil and then simmer. Remove from the heat and whisk in the chocolate, vanilla and amaretto. Stir in the milk. Place in the fridge until fully chilled, about 1-2 hours. Freeze according to your ice cream maker’s instructions.
