While we were finding 23 new ice cream flavors across Chicago, we also came across a few sorbets that were just as delicious as their dairy-packed counterparts. Whether you want a lighter frozen treat, you don't eat dairy, or you've already managed to eat your way through all the best ice cream sandwiches (if so, great job), here are five sorbets to try this summer.

(pictured, right scoop) mellows into an icy strawberry, and all is right with the world.—LB
