Lemon blackberry sorbet

bsWe’re only a few weeks away from Labor Day – can you believe how quickly the summer has flown by?

My niece is visiting for a week so I took the day off yesterday and went to the pool. Afterwards I wanted something cool, refreshing and sweet. Enter sorbet.

Here’s a super easy recipe to make your own. I used greek yogurt but you can use low-fat flavored yogurt if you prefer.

Farewell to Summer Sorbet
1 lb pkg frozen blackberries
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. greek yogurt (I like Fage brand)
1/4 c. lemon juice
Directions: mix in food processor until smooth, freeze and enjoy!

Happy Summer!

What do you like to do in the summer? Movies, read more, spend lazy days by the pool?

More Sorbet

untitled (4)I love summertime. It’s hot, you can go to the pool, wear cute shorts and best of all, sorbet tastes wonderful!

Here’s a super easy recipe to make your own.  I used greek yogurt but you can use low-fat flavored yogurt if you prefer. This example uses blackberries but if they aren’t your favorite, substitute with your favorite fruit. This is my go-to sorbet and I make it with all fruits – pineapple, kiwi, cherry, peach, cherry, raspberry, etc.
