Sorbet is an all-season treat, but my love for it really doesn't hit its peak until the languid months of mid-summer, when ice cream starts to feel a bit too rich, too heavy for my torpid existence. I need something light, cool, and juicy, and sorbet is exactly it. However, this makes it a lovely treat for late spring, too. Here are a few favorite sorbet recipes from our archives, along with a few other special non-dairy frozen treats. (Sweet wine slushies, anyone?)
