This gluten free, dairy free and vegan Chocolate Sorbet recipe is an oldie but goodie from my recipe archives. What are these archives of which I speak? A binder with more than a thousand of my unpublished recipes. Anyway, this frozen treat is one of my mother-in-law’s favorite gluten free desserts, and she asks me to make it every time she comes to visit us.
Chocolate Sorbet is a perfect treat for summer parties, makes a great dessert after a simple family meal and is a wonderful snack for children. Speaking of children, it’s challenging to accept that today is my boys last day of summer; they return to school tomorrow! Vacation flew by and is over far too soon.
One great thing about this summer? It is the first one that I was well enough to really keep up with the boys, and we had a fabulous time together.
We went to the pool, the reservoir, had some nice picnics and hung out by the creek as well. With more energy, grocery shopping became a fun expedition with them, rather than an exhausting outing. And by the way, they are fabulous baggers; they also load up the car and take the bags in when we get home. We have been quite the team this summer (they’ve even tested recipes for me) and had an amazing time.
