Looking for a cool and refreshing dessert that’s free of all major allergens and filled with an ingredient that has lots of health benefits? Try this delicious Blueberry Sorbet. Loaded with fresh, good-for-you blueberries, this dessert is bound to become a family favorite.
Don’t have an ice cream maker? No problem. Pour the strained mixture onto a cookie sheet and then freeze it until it is hard. Break the frozen mixture up into chunks and blend in the food processor until it is smooth. Then place in a bowl and freeze until needed. If the sorbet gets too hard to serve, place it in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes or so to soften.
8 cups fresh blueberries, rinsed, picked over and dried
3/4 cups sugar
1/4 cups fresh lemon juice (optional)
1/2 cups water
In a blender, puree blueberries. Transfer to a medium-sized pot. Add sugar, lemon juice and water. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat. Strain into a bowl and set aside to cool. Freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Lemon-free: In place of the lemon juice you can use amchoor powder (i.e. powdered green mango) or ground pomegranate seeds as a souring agent.
