Refreshing Ninja Creami Raspberry Lime Sorbet – Sugar Free

This post may contain affiliate links.

This Ninja Creami raspberry sorbet recipe is incredibly delicious– tart and creamy, with just the right amount of sweetness! Fresh raspberries, lime juice, and a zero-calorie sweetener make this sorbet lighter in calories and full of nutrients.

These are two small dishes with scoops of the raspberry sorbet with a lime wedge and whole raspberries on the table for garnish.

It’s berry season! That means we can find delicious, fresh, sweet, and flavorful fruit easily in our grocery store. What better way to enjoy some tart & tangy raspberries than this delicious frozen sorbet?

It’s no secret that most of the time, I use my Ninja Creami machine for protein ice cream. However, I find myself wanting to explore sorbets more. Not only can sorbet recipes be a great way to get more nutrients in your diet from the fresh fruit, but they can also be a fabulous way to eat more fiber!

This recipe uses 12 ounces of raspberries which contains 22 grams of fiber. As delicious as that is, I want to make it clear that unless you’re used to eating that much fiber in one serving, this tart & tasty treat is one that is best shared with someone else. 😉 Your stomach will thank you!

If you love Sour Patch Kids candy, you will LOVE this homemade sorbet. It is the perfect balance of tartness at first bite with sweetness coming out in its creamy texture as you continue eating. However, the sweetness can be adjusted easily with more sweetener if desired.

Ingredients

This Ninja Creami raspberry sorbet is made with simple ingredients:

  • Raspberries
  • Lime Juice
  • Allulose (or other sugar-free sweetener of choice)

That’s it! Sorbets are not typically made with dairy ingredients–usually just fruit & sugar. However, the best part of this recipe is that it contains no added sugar! I use a zero-calorie sugar substitute called allulose, but you can use whatever sugar substitute you like. The only sugar is what occurs naturally in raspberries (about 5 grams per cup according to the USDA).

Frozen fruit delivers an incredibly smooth texture after being spun in the machine, so even though this Ninja Creami sorbet recipe is dairy-free, it is still smooth and creamy.

These are the ingredients for the Ninja Creami raspberry sorbet, including fresh raspberries, lime juice, and allulose.

Instructions

This simple recipe is quick to assemble.

This is a glass bowl on a food scale with the ingredients being mashed by a green chopper utensil.

1. Mash Ingredients

Add the raspberries, lime juice, and allulose/sweetener to a bowl. Use a mashing utensil or a spoon to combine the ingredients together. They do not need to be blended completely smooth, just mashed down enough to mix the sweetener with the fruit and lime juice. Pour the mashed fruit mixture into a Ninja Creami pint container and smooth out the top so it is flat before going into the freezer.

2. Freeze

Place a storage lid on your pint container, then put it on a level surface in the freezer for 24 hours.

3. Spin

Install the pint container in your Ninja Creami ice cream machine per the manufacturer’s instructions for your model. Press the “Sorbet” button to spin.

4. Check Texture

When the spin completes, check the texture of your sorbet. If it is satisfactory, your delicious sorbet is ready to eat! If you’d like to smooth it out more, re-install it in your Creami machine and press the “Re-Spin” button.

There you have it! This fruity treat is my favorite way to enjoy all these fresh, seasonal raspberries.

Creami Tip:

This recipe as outlined uses whole raspberries for the most nutrients. I find that what is left of the seeds after spinning makes for some great texture variation.

However, if you don’t want to taste the seeds, or if you have potential concerns about the fiber content being too high, you can pour your mashed raspberry puree through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds and just freeze the smooth portion of the mixture.

This will reduce the fiber by an estimate of 40%, as well as reduce mineral content.

Ingredient Substitutions

While I love using allulose for my Ninja Creamis, you can use different sweeteners. If you prefer stevia, monk fruit, erythritol, Sucralose…whatever it is, as long as it is formulated to be a 1:1 sugar substitute, it will work for this recipe.

I would not skip the sweetener. Even with 1/4 cup of allulose, this is still pretty tart! Sweeteners also lower the freezing point of your Creami mixtures, ensuring they spin properly in the machine.

Serving Ideas & Recipe Variations

This homemade raspberry sorbet is delicious as is, but it would also be delicious mixed with some lemon-lime soda (sugar-free if preferred) as a delicious fruit punch. My husband also thinks it would go great with a splash of rum if you’re so inclined 😉 (and of age!)

Feel free to try this out with other berries, too! Fresh blueberries or strawberries also make fabulous sorbets.

Notes

Due to the fiber content, I recommend not eating it all in one sitting unless you know you can eat that many berries at once without issue. 🙂
If you only eat part of the pint, use the back of a spoon to flatten the top of the leftover sorbet before putting back in the freezer. When you want to eat it later, re-spin it in the machine using the “Sorbet” button.
