Drop The Ice Cream Habit - Switch To Sorbet



Our household has been eliminating dairy from our diet for
quite awhile now...my husband the last holdout...
but all of that changed this summer when he discovered the wonderful world
of sorbet.  I think he has made about every flavor imaginable at this point, but
so far the hands down winner is definitely blueberry.

Yes, sorbet has sugar in it, but we do know enough 
about health and nutrition to not ever let an
artificial sweetener of any kind past our lips.
We organic sugar when we need it for the occasional sweet.

Anyway, the recipe is delicious and even if you don't have an ice cream maker
there are plenty of sorbet recipes online that do not
require one.

So whether you need to drop your cholesterol, or just get tired of
that congested "yuck" feeling that you have after
 you eat ice cream (which was his case),
I suggest you try sorbet! 

enjoy!



3 cups (1 1/2 pints) fresh blueberries, rinsed and drained 
(can use frozen unsweetened)
1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

In a blender or food processor puree the blueberries with the water until smooth.
  Pour mixture into a large bowl.  Add the sugar and lemon juice.  Whisk to blend.
Cover and refrigerate until cold, at least 2 hours.  Whisk the mixture to blend and pour 
into the canister of an ice cream maker.  Freeze according to directions.  
Transfer to covered container and freeze until firm, at least 1 hour.
