Easy Berry Sorbet

It’s no secret that blackberries are high on my foodie crush list. Last summer I made some blackberry lemonade cupcakes that really knocked it out of the park, but this year I’m taking a different approach. Frozen treats are taking up permanent residence in my freezer starting with homemade ice creams, popsicles, and now sorbets! I couldn’t wait to try this recipe for berry sorbet! The best part? You don’t even need an ice cream maker.

I love that, unlike ice cream, sorbet’s aren’t dairy based. They are packed with fruit and frozen to perfection. It’s almost like a popsicle in ice cream form. Since I didn’t have an ice cream maker on hand I had to do a little improvising. To achieve the smooth texture I actually used my Blendtec, but I’ll give you a few other ways to get the smooth texture that don’t even require the use of a machine!
