Mealtime Makeovers...Summer Sorbet PDF Print E-mail

Now, we all know that ice cream is a summer favorite for most people, especially children. However, if I ate ice cream every time I wanted it, I would hate to see how much my waistline would suffer!

Yogurts and sorbets are a tiny bit healthier and that allows my mind to convince me that an occasional overindulgence is all right.

I was grocery shopping with my mom the other day and she was in search of raspberry sorbet. As I pushed my little cart along I remembered this recipe that I came across when I was pregnant with my son. 

I made this recipe several times while I was living in Omaha. The humidity in that city always led me to believe that I needed sweet treats to cool off.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
