Have you every had a craving for something cold and fresh on a hot summer day? I often do and instead of a big bowl of ice cream I generally reach for some sorbet, I can no longer indulge in ice cream but have found an alternative in sorbet. The cool part is that you can make sorbet in an array of different flavor combinations. I have done Strawberry, Lemon, a combination of both, Raspberry, Blueberry, Blackberry, gosh I think I’m forgetting some. Making sorbet is such an easy process and you don’t even need an ice cream maker to do it, just your basic kitchen tools and you have this fancy, beautiful, silky sorbet.
