Cup of Sunshine Raspberry Sorbet

In the dead heat of summer, there’s nothing quite as satisfying as sorbet. Free of dairy and loaded with fresh, antioxidant-rich raspberries, it’s the icy cap on a hot day. Add in the mood-lifting benefits of our Cup of Sunshine® tea, and suddenly the words “chilled out” take on a whole new meaning.* Best of all, our Cup of Sunshine Raspberry Sorbet is easy to make—it just takes a little prep time.

Cup of Sunshine is composed of kanna, an African succulent used to improve your mood. Mellow and carefree, kanna is an herbal ally that will help you put a fresh perspective on a tough day.* We’ve paired this optimistic herb with sun-kissed honeybush, a South African herb that is smooth and sweet, with honey-roasted notes.

Make your friends happy—not just because it’s a crowd-pleasing sweet treat, but especially for its uplifting herbal benefits! Please keep in mind that kanna is meant for people ages 18 and up, so this is one frozen treat that’s not intended for kids.
