Srawberry Lime Sorbet
serves 4 to 6
Youre just minutes away from enjoying a refreshing sorbet that tastes just as delicious as one youd find at an ice cream shop. Frozen strawberries, whose red flesh contains a compound that may help promote fat loss and boost short-term memory, are the key to this delectable treat, as they provide a slushy, sorbetlike texture when pureed. No need for an ice cream maker! Once you get the hang of it, feel free to use any other frozen fruit you like for an endless number of flavor possibilities.
1 pound frozen strawberries
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
¼ cup maple syrup
¼ cup water, or more as needed to facilitate blending
In a large food processor fitted with an S blade, combine the strawberries, lime juice, maple syrup, and water. Process until the strawberries are completely broken down, which may take several minutes, creating a smooth and thick consistency similar to sorbet. Add more water, if needed, to achieve this smooth texture, and then serve immediately.
NOTE: Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the freezer, but they will become rock hard when frozen. To serve again, remove from the freezer and thaw for 20 to 30 minutes, until the sorbet can be stirred and restored to its original texture.
