Frequently asked questions
No, frozen hard berries can possibly damage the blades of your Ninja Creami machine. It’s best to allow your frozen fruit to thaw for at least 30 minutes then blend it until smooth using a traditional blender.
Check the setting of your freezer it might have been set to a really cold setting. If your freezer is too cold then try leaving your sorbet out on the counter for 5 - 10 minutes before enjoying.
A high water content and/ or too little sugar can cause your sorbet to turn out icy. This recipe is made without water just fresh or frozen berries, sugar, and lemon juice. This helps the sorbet remain soft even when frozen. For the sugar, I find that 4 tablespoons are enough to make sure that the sorbet is soft and sweet enough.
Sherbet and sorbet are similar in that they are both fruit desserts made with fruit and sugar. The main difference is that sherbets include dairy-like milk or cream and have a consistency closer to ice cream and sorbets are completely dairy-free.

Ninja Creami Raspberry Sorbet
- 4 cups raspberries fresh or frozen
- 4 tablespoons cane sugar
- 1 - 2 teaspoons lemon juice optional
- If using frozen raspberries allow them to thaw for at least 30 minutes before getting started. If using fresh raspberries make sure they are well rinsed and any bad-looking berries are removed.
- Into a blender add raspberries, cane sugar, and lemon juice. Blend until smooth then transfer the mixture into the Ninja Creami pint container, making sure the mixture doesn’t go over the max fill line.
- Top with the lid then freeze on a level surface for at least 24 hours.
- The next day, remove the lid then place the pint container into the ninja creami outer bowl, secure it with the Creami lid then insert it into the machine.
- Press the SORBET button then allow it to run through the cycle. This usually takes about 2 minutes.
- Remove the pint container from the machine. If your sorbet has a crumbly texture and can’t easily be spread out with a spoon, run it through the RESPIN cycle with a splash of fruit juice. Repeat it until reaches your desired level of creaminess.
- Scoop, serve, and enjoy!
