"I have not made this recipe - alas, I do not own a Gelateria! - but just reading the simple combination of flavours, this sorbet sounds just SO delicious. A strawberry sorbet which combines the sweetness of strawberries with the tartness of limes. If you really are a diehard sweet tooth, use orange juice instead of lime juice, or a blend of orange and lime. This is a Sunbeam recipe, and you need a Sunbeam Gelateria - or a similar appliance - to complete the final step of the recipe. The 'cooking time' listed below is the time taken by the Gelateria to turn the mixture into sorbet. NOTE added July 2008: It's great to see that Zaar chefs have successfully made this recipe without Sunbeam's efforts to tell them that they needed a Sunbeam Gelateria to make it! Well done! When summer comes next, I shall certainly be trying it!"

"I made this today, and it really hit the spot. With temps well into the 90's this was a refreshing treat for sure. But I did cheat. I did not push the puree through a sieve. Strawberries just aren't the same to me unless they have that little crunch from the seed. Great recipe and very easy to make."
"Made as directed using my Cuisineart ice cream maker kitchen gadget. I don't usually remove seeds from strawberries (not like I would from raspberries, anyway!), and it was so much work since I used a very fine sieve, but I have to say, it was fabulous without the seeds! So, the extra effort was worth it! Great consistency! Thanks, Bluemoon Downunder! Made for Zaar Stars."
"5 Stars, even without a Gelateria, made while on vacation using my Vitamix and the condo's freezer, recommend freezing in small glasses or cups; after frozen hard, thaw at least 15 minutes before serving. Very refreshing, great strawberry accent, loved the lime juice to put the accent on the strawberries, powdered sugar meant the sugar dissolved almost instantly. Used as part of the delightful Recipe #313680 #313680 for a real treat. Thanks for posting!"
"Well it is strawberry season here so I thought I would give this a whirl, wow, was it a hit! Delicious and easy to make, I will be doing this one again, thanks for posting!"
"What a wonderful refreshing dessert and a wonderful way to use up fresh ripe strawberries! I used milk in place of water, and stuck the mixture into the freezer to made a slushy dessert, we loved it! thanks bluemoon!...Kitten"
"I used frozen strawberries, which I processed in the food processor with the syrup and lemon juice.I didn't have lime. Instant sorbet! I froze, then let thaw out a little before eating. Thank you!"
