From a calorie and fat content point of view Sorbets are healthier.

Ice-creams generally contain around 110 calories in every 100 grams and nearly 5 grams of fat. But that's just plain vanilla ice-cream. A chocolate and caramel kind of flavour contains anything between 170 calories and 10 grams of fat. A Sorbet contains 100 calories but no fat whatsoever.

Sorbets are generally made at home and when available at restaurants are prepared fresh. Ice-creams are more so preserved over longer periods and contain rarely any vitamins or benefits associated with their fruit content.

The calorie content associated with Sorbets comes from their sugar content. If the proportion of sugar is reduced the calorie content falls considerably. Honey can be used as a substitute for sugar, making it more beneficial.
