      Sorbets are not suppose to have milk. I think this is a recipe for sherbet.

      This is the first time I used my ice-cream maker so I'm not sure whether it's working correctly or not. This tasted just lovely but I'm not sure I got the consistency right, it was very hard to scoop once frozen and I had to scrape it out of the container so it was more like a slush, I think I need to experiment with my ice-cream maker more!!

      Absolutely outstanding! It has that fresh tasting, sweet yet tart flavor that you only acquire with fresh lemon! This recipe, I will undoubtedly use again and again! I am using this sorbet as the sandwich filling to create my Granola Ice Cream Squares which should be fantastic topped with the wonderfully fresh taste of Blackberry Sauce! Thank you for this wonderful recipe, Calee!
