Sorbet /sɔrˈb/ is a frozen dessert made from sweetened water with flavoring (typically fruit juice or fruit puréewine, and/or liqueur, and very rarely Honey). Sorbet is often confused with Italian ice and often taken to be the same as sherbet.Sorbets/sherbets may also contain alcohol, which lowers the freezing temperature, resulting in a softer texture. In the UK and Australia, sherbet refers to a fizzy powder type of sweet.

Whereas ice cream is based on dairy products with air copiously whipped in, sorbet has neither, which makes for a dense and extremely flavorful product. Sorbet is served as a non-fat or low-fat alternative to ice cream.
