Mixed Berry Sorbet

Berry Sorbet
Mixed berries combined with fresh ginger makes a beautiful and zingy sorbet, perfect for dessert or if you’re like me, after a long day by the pool. And, as a bonus, this tasty treat delivers a punch of antioxidants and is a great sources of fiber, a nutrient important for a healthy digestive system. Ummm…dare I say, this dessert is healthy?

Ingredients

• 4 cups mixed berries (about 1 ¼ pounds), fresh or frozen (see notes).
• ¾ cup water.
• 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice.
• 1 tsp. fresh lemon zest.
• ½ tsp. fresh ginger, grated fine.
• ¼ cup sugar.

Directions

1 – Puree berries until smooth in a food processor or blender. Set aside.
2 – Combine water, lemon juice, ginger and water in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring, until the sugar is completely dissolved.
3 – Stir the syrup into the fruit puree and blend until incorporated. Add lemon zest and pulse for 5-10 seconds.
4 – Pour mixture into a shallow metal cake pan and seal with an airtight lid. Store in the refrigerator until cold, about 4 hours.
5 – Transfer the sorbet into the freezer, about 6 hours. Enjoy!

Notes:If using frozen fruit, measure frozen and then thaw before pureeing. This dessert lasts up to 1 week in the freezer, if it makes it that long? Before serving, let soften on counter slightly. You may need to break up junks in a blender, creating a smooth consistency. I like to serve sorbet in a fun glass.
