Sugar-free chocolate sorbet is a great way to make a healthier snack or dessert this summer. No sugar added and perfect for dark chocolate lovers.
Where are my chocolate lovers at? I’ve been on an ice cream and sorbet making kick lately. I love both, but I try to make sorbet more often because it’s a bit healthier than ice cream.
There’s no dairy or sugar in this sugar-free chocolate sorbet, and lower in calories than chocolate ice cream.
The base of this chocolate sorbet comes together quickly. Traditional sorbets can be loaded with sugar, but this one is made to be healthier with the use of monk fruit sweetener.
If you’ve never worked with it, it can be found in the baking isle by the sugar. Or in the health food section of your grocery store. It works and acts just like white granulated sugar, but without the calories and carbs.

How to make this recipe
Start by preparing a simple syrup with the water and sweetener.
1 – Place the water, salt and the sweetener in a medium size saucepan set over medium-low heat. Cook mixture until the sweetener is fully dissolved.
2 – Gradually add the cocoa powder to the simple syrup, whisking it constantly until smooth. Add the vanilla and stir to combine.
3 – Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours, or overnight.
4 – Once the mixture is chilled, pour it into the ice cream maker and let it churn for approximately 20 minutes until the sorbet has thickened.
5 – If a firmer consistency is required, transfer the sorbet into an airtight container and freeze it for a couple hours. Remove the container from the freezer about 15 minutes before serving.
How do I store my sorbet?
Store sorbet in a freezer safe, airtight container. Stored properly, it will last for about 1 month the freezer. When you’re ready to eat it again, remove from freezer for a few minutes so it can soften a little first.
