What is sorbet?

Our Chocolate Sorbet is one of our bestsellers, yet some of our customers are unsure about how sorbet differs from ice cream and sherbet.

Cantaloupe Sorbet Makes a Comeback

Cantaloupe Sorbet

Some flavors are just too fine to stay retired! Our fruit sorbets are always popular among customers -- especially those whose diets limit them to dairy-free options. As the weather begins to shift to spring, we figured now is a great time to revive the refreshing Cantaloupe Sorbet! As far as sweetness goes, cantaloupes are… Continue reading

Plum Sorbet

Plum Sorbet

Since we first opened, we've made our fair share of fruit sorbets here at Hedonist. These sorbets are a necessity as not everyone's diet allows for the dairy normally found in ice cream. Not only are they are a treat for those who don't do lactose, but they're also a treat for us to make… Continue reading

Roasted Cantaloupe Sorbet

Roasted Cantaloupe Sorbet

When we roast cantaloupe, its mellow sweetness takes an edge of caramelization and the flavor deepens. We enhance that by lacing the sorbet with New York maple syrup, golden rum and  pinch of smoked sea salt for a rich and flavorful sorbet with an ever so slightly savory finish… Continue reading

Rhubarb Sorbet

Rhubarb Sorbet

Rochester’s Public Market is a great place to find local agricultural gems. At the market we bought armfuls of freshly harvested rhubarb from two regional farms: Old Home and Peters Farms. We brought the back to the kitchen, cooked the red and green stalks down to a puree, and blended them with Davis Orange Blossom… Continue reading

Chocolate Sorbet

Chocolate Sorbet

Deeper and darker than any chocolate ice cream you've ever had. This dairy-free sorbet is smooth, dense and rich, and melts on your palate like one of our chocolate truffle's ganaches. This is one of our standards that we always try to have available… Continue reading
