Sweetheart Sorbet Pie January 27, 2014

Hello, everyone!

Another candy-based holiday is around the corner.  A wonderful time, unless you have food allergies… and then creating a special treat can be quite a challenge!  And that’s where Sweetheart Sorbet Pie comes in!


I created this when my son announced that he didn’t really care for cake.  And that meant no more cupcakes either… (Sigh!)


Thinking about how much I loved ice cream cake, we invented sorbet pie!  It’s quick, easy, delicious and appropriate for all kinds of special occasions – or for no reason at all.




2 pints of your favorite, safe sorbet

1 9-inch graham cracker pie crust

Berries, sprinkles, safe dairy-free chocolate chips (optional)


 Step 1:  Gather your ingredients and let your sorbet sit out for about 5-10 minutes.



Step 2:  When soft, stir the sorbet either in its container or in a bowl.



Step 3:  When slightly melted and malleable, scoop into the pie crust and spread using the back of a spoon or soft spatula.


Step 4:  Continue to add sorbet and spread until the pie crust is filled.  Smooth out top.



Step 5:  Should you wish, add berries, dairy-free chocolate chips, sprinkles or any other type of deliciousness you can think of… and then freeze for at least 2 hours.



Step 6:  Let thaw for a few minutes, slice and enjoy with your big and/or little sweethearts!

    I make this same pie, only using an Oreo crust and using the rasp. Hagan dazz sorbet on bottom 1/3, then 1/3 hagan dazz vanilla yogurt, then 1/3 rasp. Sorbet again, top with rainbow sprinkles. Yum! The mango flavored and peach flavored hd sorbet works well with the graham or shortbread crust.
