I made mine with fresh berries from home, and used juice of two lemons (i.e. 6 tbsp "ReaLemon"). This recipe is all flavor! (Though it will depend on the quality of your berries!). The amount of sugar was nice, it was just enough to cut down on tartness but wasn't overly sweet. I froze some of my mixture in popsicle containers.

I really wanted something sweet with out blowing my low fat diet. I reduced the sugar and I didn't have any lemon on hand but made it anyway. It came out like Hagen Daaz! Simply Beautiful!!!

I made up a recipe several years ago that was very similar to this. It is one of my favorite, most refreshing desserts. I use frozen fruits (so I didn't need to put in freezer) and I used Splenda. I didn't think of adding the lemon juice. Can't wait to try it with Lime juice (as I have a lime tree and not a lemon tree ) I will try this with fresh berries (as written but will use Splenda. Thanks for posting.

I didn't bother to strain out the pips either; I agree with hippieastrum about their texture. The sorbet came out of the freezer far too hard and made me wish I had an ice cream maker, food processor or at least a better blender, but after letting the sorbet thaw for a little while (or hitting it with a spoon when I got too impatient), it was just delicious. Next time I'll try adding a few tablespoons of vodka to the mix, since that helped a lot with my most recent sorbet attempt... Or maybe I just won't leave it in the freezer for so long. Anyway, this is a great recipe with wonderful flavors. I highly recommend it!

This sorbet is fantastic and so easy! I used fresh fruit and reduced the sugar a bit but it was still plenty sweet.

We got an ice cream maker for our wedding and love making sorbet. This sorbet turned out very tangy. Might add more sugar next time. thanks for posting

Refreshing & HeaLTHY! I used my vita mix which allowed me to skip the hulling, sieving, & freezing. I used frozen berries putting them into the vita mix with the juices and 1/2 the sugar. The berries were sweet and really didn`t need it. Blended on medium then high using the pusher. Came out very creamy and yummy!
