strawberry sorbet

so cool and so good for you

A refreshing strawberry sorbet recipe is  just what you need on a hot summer's day. Especially this one! 

This is a recipe from Provence and is just the easiest recipe I have ever used. All you need are summer fresh succulent strawberries with some sugar and lemon juice. What could be easier.

A sorbet or 'ices' as they are also called are wonderful for family desserts, anytime treats, or entertaining. They are especially good for you made with fresh fruit but of course you can use frozen fruit when it is not available. 

Another great idea is to fill ice lolly moulds with the sorbet for the kids which is a much healthier option and tasty too.

Ingredients

·         1 kg (2.2lbs) of strawberries

·         500gms (1 lb) icing sugar

·         Juice of1 lemon



Method

·         Rinse the strawberries and remove their stems.

·         Mix to a pulp in a liquidiser or mash them if you don't have one handy.

·         Add the sugar and the lemon juice.

·         Place in a container and put in freezer and leave for a couple of hours.

Note

If you find this recipe too sweet, just use a little less sugar. Sometimes the strawberries are quite sweet themselves, so it is up to you. Some of us have a sweeter tooth than others.
