Chocolate Sorbet

This dairy-free, vegan Chocolate Sorbet recipe is made with only 2 ingredients! A rich yet healthy frozen dessert, it is one of my mother-in-law’s favorites, and she asks me to make it every time she comes to visit.

Chocolate Sorbet makes a great dairy-free dessert after a simple family meal. Because it’s so decadent, I often serve it at our summer parties.

Speaking of summer, it’s challenging to accept that today is my boys’ last day. They return to school tomorrow! Vacation flew by and is over far too soon. This summer is the first one that I was well enough to really keep up with the boys, and we had a fabulous time together.

We went to the pool, the reservoir, had some nice picnics, and spent time down by the creek. With more energy, grocery shopping became a fun expedition with them, rather than an exhausting outing. They are fabulous baggers. They also load up the car and take the groceries in when we get home.  We have been quite the team this summer, they’ve even tested recipes for me, and we had an amazing time.

  1. Hi Elana,
    The link to the chocolate chips is not working. Are you using 70% chocolate for these? If so, I can probably just use a chopped chocolate bar.
    By the way, I have planted a couple of zucchini plants and am looking forward to making your chocolate zucchini bread – easy and delicious!
    Thanks for all the work you have put into these healthy recipes that I can serve my family.

  2. This is literally my favorite chocolate indulgence. I’ve made it many times and each time I’m savoring every single bite. Your recipes are awesome.

    • Deborah, we love this sorbet too! No one can ever believe it’s healthy, dairy-free, and low-carb when I serve it. So glad to hear it is literally your favorite chocolate indulgence!
