Helpful Tips

  • The perfect low-fat ending to any meal.  This sorbet can be made with almost any fruit.  Try raspberries, peaches, blueberries, kiwi fruit, cantaloupe or any other seasonal fruit.
  • Beating the sorbet during the freezing process helps to keep it from becoming too solid and helps to reduce the formation of ice crystals.
  • Sorbet is a cool and elegant way to serve fruit and end any meal, particularly during the summer.  The strawberries in this recipe are a good source of vitamin C.
