While I adore a good Flourless Chocolate Cake for dessert, there is also something to be said for trying to include fruits in your desserts. Fruits always make me feel like I'm eating healthier. Like this easy 5 minute raspberry dessert. Raspberries are a known antioxidant and they have anti-inflammatory properties.
So, you could have a purely decadent dessert or your could feel good about it and include some fruit. You could even meet in the middle like these Dark Chocolate Raspberry Tarts!
How to Make This Easy Raspberry Dessert
You can make this easy raspberry dessert in about 5 minutes! You just need to gather your ingredients: raspberry sherbet (or sorbet or ice cream,) raspberry preserves or spread, orange liqueur, and fresh raspberries. My homemade orange liqueur would be perfect for this, or you can use store bought. If you don't want to use liqueur, you can use orange juice.
In small bowl, you combine the raspberry spread, orange liqueur, and water. Then you gently stir in the raspberries. Spoon your sorbet into a pretty glass and top with with the raspberry mixture. Garnish with mint if you like! That's it!
The original recipe, which I found in an old Cooking Light book that is not even published any more called for using raspberry sorbet. I couldn't find any, so I used sherbet. Frozen yogurt or ice cream would also work.
