Raspberry, Honey, and Black Tea Sorbet



Start by making the black tea simple syrup recipe, then use frozen raspberries to complete this sorbet without an ice cream maker.

Honey Black Tea simple syrup
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 black tea bags
Raspberry, Honey, and Black Tea Sorbet
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen raspberries
  • 1/4 cup honey, black tea simple syrup (recipe above)


For the tea, combine the water, honey, and sugar and bring to a boil. Turn off heat then steep two black tea bags in the mixture for 5 minutes. Refrigerate until cold.

For the sorbet, in a blender or food processor, combine frozen raspberries, honey, and black tea simple syrup and process until smooth. You can adjust the amount of simple syrup based on your desired sweetness. The resulting product will be quite soft.

Place in an airtight container and put in the refrigerator or freezer until firm. You may eat it as is or add some low-fat yogurt for a delicious smoothie. Add a sprig of mint for garnish.

    Raspberries pack a powerful punch of cancer-fighting antioxidants. They are high in vitamin C, manganese, and the antioxidants anthocyanins and quercetin. These nutrients can help restrain cancer cell growth, neutralize cancer-causing free radicals in the body, and protect body tissues from free radical damage.

    Raspberries also may reduce the risk of heart disease, slow down arthrosclerosis, and may benefit those who suffer from chronic inflammation and pain. They are one of the few fruits that do not cause a spike in blood sugar, which is important for anyone with diabetes or high blood sugar.
