For an amazing easy dessert check out this great Homemade Blueberry Lemon Sorbet! Made with fresh ingredients, you will love this treat!
What exactly is sorbet?
Sorbet is basically a frozen dessert made from fruit, most commonly berries. Sorbet is lighter and easier to digest than ice cream since it does not include milk or eggs.
While sorbet can be made with many different fruits, blueberries are one of my favorites! Blueberries are packed full of nutrients like vitamin C and antioxidants. They also have a natural sweetness that is perfect for making desserts.
How do you make a sorbet not icy?
The key to making a smooth, not icy, sorbet is to use ripe fruit and to puree the fruit until it is completely smooth. You also want to make sure that you add enough sugar to the mixture. The sugar helps to prevent the sorbet from freezing solid.
What type of blueberries should I use?
When making a blueberry sorbet, you want to look for fresh blueberries that are ripe, but not overly soft. You can also use frozen or wild blueberries if you prefer, though the flavor may be slightly different from fresh berries.
Whatever type of blueberries you choose, make sure to puree them thoroughly so that your sorbet comes out smooth and creamy.
