Get a load of this summertime treat for your taste buds. A delicious lemon pear sorbet. It’s a sweet tart flavor that is a nice pivot from traditional ice cream, and mixed the combination of lemon and pear add an amazing fruit element that can’t be denied.
FUN FACTHere’s some useless trivia to share with your friends
Sobret is also known as ‘sherbet’, although the two have their distinct differences. Sorbet traditionally doesn’t contain any dairy in it and is usually made with fruit and sugar. Shebet on the other hand does contain dairy (milk), and while it too also comes with fruit, it’s much more creamier than sorbet.
As compared to ice cream, which contains much more dairy and fat than the other two, sorbet is definitely a healthier alternative.
