Strawberry Sorbet

Strawberry Sorbet

When my kids were little, we loved to make homemade ice cream.  Today, it’s a real treat, but not one we make often.  So when I came across this healthy sorbet recipe in my local newspaper, I had to give it a try.

It’s super easy, whips up such a pretty pink, and since strawberries are in season, it’s relatively inexpensive to make, too.  The first time I made the sorbet, I used non-fat Greek yogurt since I already had some in the refrigerator, but I found it froze up really hard.  So be sure to use yogurt with a little fat in it.  It’ll be creamier and easier to scoop.  

Melted, this sorbet makes a great smoothie, too!
