Absolutely delicious and so refreshing during these hot days of summer!!! I made 1/2 of the recipe, but now wish I had made the whole amount. To me, it was the perfect blend of the citrus and sweetness of the strawberries. I don't have an ice cream maker any longer(DH decided it wasn't used enough and threw it away), so I made the recipe as written, except I froze it, then added it to my mini food processor and then repeated this, and it was perfect. Thanks for sharing this keeper. Made for PRMR Tag Game.
Pure fresh tasting goodness. Made using Splenda in place of the sugar so didn't need to boil the syrup, just mix blend and chill. Mine was cold enought for the ice cream maker in about 40 mins and then had reached soft serve stage (my favorite consistancy) in 20 mins. Really a lovely sorbet and so very good. :D

<p>I love cooking and trying different foods, but my favorite cookbooks are now Weight Watchers or low fat/low cal cookbooks as I tend to try and make low fat/low cal recipes. I lost over 90 pounds on Weight Watchers and have maintained for over a year now -- so my cooking/eating habits have changed drastically following my weight loss and to keep it off!</p>
