It takes around one hour to harden up once you put it in the freezer. You might go a little bit longer to reach the texture you want. When it is ready then grab an ice cream scoop and start serving it up.
Can I Make A Sorbet With Frozen Fruit?
Because you are using an ice cream churn, you have the option for fresh or frozen fruit. I find that sometimes our supermarket doesn’t have the best fresh blueberries and I have had to reach in the freezer section. Depending on the season and what you have available, you can use frozen blueberries in a pinch.
I do find that fresh offer a slight variance in flavor that I personally prefer, but the choice is yours.
How Long Does Homemade Sorbet Last?
Homemade sorbet can last a long time in the freezer. If your freezer is at 0 degrees F. you can freeze your sorbet up to 2 to 4 months. Make sure to store it properly in an airtight container, otherwise, it may not last as long.

Start by giving your fresh blueberries a good rinse under cold water.
Add all your ingredients into your Vitamix blender and blend it up until it is a nice and creamy texture.
Grab your ice cream maker and pour the mixture in, and select the proper settings to your manufacturer’s directions.
Then pour into a freezer friendly container and freeze for around one hour or until it firms up.

If you do not have an ice cream maker, that is okay! Just put in a blender like directions state, and then place in a freezer friendly container and freeze for around 2 hours or until it firms up.
Is Blueberry Sorbet Vegan?
My recipe is a vegan blueberry sorbet recipe. I use minimal ingredients and I use xylitol to sweeten vs honey. So yes, this is a vegan-friendly recipe.
What is the Difference Between Ice Cream and Sorbet?
The biggest difference you will find between ice cream and sorbet are the ingredients they both use. Ice cream consists of dairy, while a sorbet uses fruit. Both offer a creamy and silky texture, but a sorbet tends to be more ‘icy’ in texture.

Sorbet is made using fruit puree or even fruit juice and water. Some recipes will use an egg as a stabilizer, but most are just fruit, water, and a few other simple ingredients.
