Why cherry, you ask? Well, not only are cherries in season during the summer in the U.S., making them fresh and abundantly available, but they also pack a powerful flavor punch. Plus, they're a fantastic source of antioxidants and vitamin C!
Now, imagine the burst of tart sweetness from ripe cherries, combined with the velvety creaminess of coconut – all in a frosty dessert. Sounds heavenly, doesn't it? This cherry sorbet recipe captures all that and more. It's vegan, incredibly easy to make, and requires only a handful of ingredients.
My secret to the creaminess? Frozen coconut cubes! These tiny wonders transform our cherry sorbet from an icy treat into a lusciously smooth delight. Without the coconut cubes, the cherry sorbet will still be a delicious, icy treat, though it may lack the creaminess that the coconut cubes provide. If you still want a bit of creaminess without the coconut, you could add a bit of plant-based milk or yogurt as an alternative.

2 cups of frozen cherries
1/2 cup of frozen coconut cubes (or coconut cream cubes)
1/4 cup of agave nectar
A squeeze of fresh lemon juice
Add the frozen cherries, frozen coconut cubes, agave syrup, and lemon juice into a food processor or high-speed blender.
Blend until the mixture is smooth. If it's too thick or not blending well, add a small amount of cold water or additional lemon juice.
Taste the mixture and adjust the sweetness or acidity as needed.
Serve the sorbet immediately for a soft-serve consistency, or transfer it to a lidded container and freeze for a few hours for a firmer texture.
When you're ready to serve, let the sorbet sit at room temperature for a few minutes to soften, then scoop it into bowls or cones.
Pairing and garnishing your cherry sorbet can enhance its presentation and taste. Here are a few ideas:
Mint Leaves: Fresh mint leaves not only add a pop of color but also provide a refreshing contrast to the sweet cherry sorbet.
Lemon or Lime Zest: The citrus notes can lift the cherry flavor, making it even more vibrant.
Chocolate Shavings: Dark chocolate and cherry is a classic combo. Use a vegetable peeler to create thin shavings from a bar of dark vegan chocolate.
Almond Biscotti: The crunchy texture of biscotti contrasts wonderfully with the smooth sorbet. The almond flavor also works well with cherries.
Coconut Whipped Cream: Whip up some canned coconut cream with a touch of agave syrup for a vegan version of whipped cream.
Berry Salad: A simple salad of fresh mixed berries can pair nicely with the sorbet, enhancing its fruitiness.
