Ice cream is a popular type of dessert. Children and adults alike love the pleasure of this dessert. There are many types of ice creams that a person can choose from them. Two of them include Sherbet and Sorbet. One key difference between the two is the types of ingredients they use. To make sorbet, a person would mainly use fruit and sugar. Sherbet also uses fruit and sugar, but it also adds the ingredient of cream, which is dairy. A person that is lactose intolerant may prefer sorbet because it does not include the dairy aspect that sherbet has.

A lot of people love different types of desserts—some particularly like cold desserts like ice cream. You may also be curious to learn more about sherbet and sorbet. Sorbet is known to be made out of two different ingredients, namely fruit, and sugar.

What makes sherbet different is it is made out of three ingredients, namely fruit, sugar, and cream. A sherbet should contain about one to two percent of milkfat so that it can be classified as such.

There are some people who would obviously prefer the sorbet, especially if they know that they are lactose intolerant, and they will not have the ability to process the dairy. Those who would love something creamier can obviously choose the sherbet easily.
