Berry Sorbet

Prep: 10 minutes Chill: 6-8 hours

Serves:8

Ingredients

  • 4 cups frozen raspberries or strawberries
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup honey

Directions

Place the frozen berries in a bowl on the counter and allow to partially thaw. Do not drain. Place berries in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and process again. Pour into a bowl. Cover and freeze until slushy, about 3 hours. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Cover and return to freezer. Freeze until firm, several more hours or overnight.

Remove from freezer about 10 minutes before serving.

Hint: To make this with sugar instead of honey, use about 1 cup of sugar and dissolve in 1 1/2 cups of boiling water in a saucepan. Remove from heat and cool completely. Try this with fresh melon of any kind of berries. Use about 1/2 cup of orange juice instead of the lemon juice.

Non-dairy milk may be substituted for most of the water for a creamy dessert.
