Sorbet is a pretty simple and easy process. Choose your choice of fruit and cut it up. Place the frozen fruit on a sheet pan and freeze it for 2 to 4 hours. Make some simple syrup which is just sugar and water combined in a pan and heated up, until the sugar has dissolved. You can use a food processor or blender to puree the fruit and season it with whatever you like. I prefer citrus. That gives it a nice fresh flavor. Sorbet is also dairy free and is a great alternative to people with dairy sensitivity.
Totally perfect for really hot days like today!
Once you have the process down, it’s fun to experiment with the different types of fruit out there.Print

Fruit is zero points on Weight Watchers but when it is blended, it is more. FYI.
