Mixed Berry Sorbet

Yummy! Sorbet!

I love ice cream so much that I often forget how good sorbet is. It’s such a refreshing after dinner treat, and perfect for the dog days of summer.

Mixed Berry Sorbet

adapted slightly from Cookin’ Canuck

  • 6 cups fresh or frozen berries (I used a mix of frozen strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • juice of two large lemons

Directions:

 

  1. Combine berries and sugar in a large bowl and let sit for 15 minutes to release the juices.
  2. Place berries (and their juices) and lemon juice in a blender and puree until smooth.
  3. Strain the mixture using a fine mesh sieve and discard solids. Refrigerate mixture 30 minutes.
  4. Pour mixture into ice cream maker and process according to manufacturer’s directions.
  5. Transfer to an air-tight container and freeze for 3-4 hours. Serve.

I would like to make this with fresh berries next time, but I happened to have a huge bag of frozen berries in the freezer that I wanted to use up.

I probably don’t have to tell you that the Critics loved it. They always love dessert!

  1. What a beautiful color! I love using this easy formula for making sorbet.

  2. That colour really is beautiful! I make berry sorbet without the sugar, just using the blender, freezing and then pressing it into ice cream cones. But I’ll bet yours is much sweeter and a bit more kid-friendly!
