  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 cups water
  • 3/4 cup pure cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat the sugar in a large saucepan over medium heat without stirring, until it begins to melt. Once it begins to melt, stir frequently until completely melted and caramelized.

  2. Reduce heat to medium-low and add the water to create a caramel, still stirring frequently.

  3. Next, stir in the cocoa powder and salt until completely smooth and dissolved.

  4. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

  5. Add the vanilla, cover, and chill in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.

  6. If you have an ice cream maker, process the mixture in your ice cream maker according to the directions, then freeze until firm.

  7. If you don't have an ice cream maker, pour the sorbet into a shallow container and freeze, stirring every 30 minutes until desired consistency is reached, about 2 hours.

  8. Makes about one quart (four servings) of low-calorie vegan chocolate sorbet.
