Blackberry Sorbet

Blackberry Sorbet - Naturally Vegan & Gluten Free!

Excuse me while I weep into my sorbet, but I just addressed the invitations for the girls first birthday. HOW? I know every Mom says it, but I swear to you a year hasn’t gone by. I believe someone has been shaving hours off each day. (Which is also where all my sleep went.)

Now, combine that with the non stop Jurassic Park marathon that has been happening at our house (thanks, Jorge)…and you can understand why I am a bit on edge. Every night in the shower I am convinced a raptor is going to come in and get me.

To comfort me, I wanted ice cream. It makes a great snack to accompany me into bed to watch dinosaurs kill people. However, I wasn’t looking for all the added calories. I mean, eating in bed is bad enough without it being 100 billion calories.

So instead of making this amazing calorie bomb again, I made a Blackberry Sorbet. It’s naturally vegan and gluten free and has SO much flavor from the berries.

You can use this recipe as a basic recipe to make any berry flavored sorbets, just adjust the sugar a little accordingly. With raspberries, I would use a little more sugar. With berries that are already super sweet, a little less. 😉

Head on over to Dixie Crystals for the recipe!

I really need to cancel my Netlifx subscription. The amount of tv that Jorge and I can re-watch is embarrassing. We rarely watch anything new on Netflix, but we constantly re-watch our old favorites. Now that Friends is on Netflix, we have been slowly working our way all the...
