Fresh Strawberry, Blueberry, and Grape Sorbet

Sorbets are so deliciously refreshing, especially on hot and humid summer days. You can make them as sweet as you want, depending on the fruits you choose.

I happened to have strawberries, blueberries, and grapes on hand, so those are the fruits I chose to use in my sorbet. Other fruits that work well for sorbets include watermelon, peaches, cherries, kiwi, and mangoes. You can combine fruits or just use one.

I wouldn't use bananas, plums, pineapples, apples, or pears, though. The consistency wouldn't be right.

Fresh fruit sorbet is so easy to make. In no time at all, you can enjoy delicious cups of cool freshness. Happy summer!

      Hi Larry. I'm always so glad to hear from a man. My father was a good baker and I know other men who love to cook. This isn't actually cooking but you probably know what you are doing. I hope you do try this sorbet. Thank you for your great comment.

      Blessings to you.

      Hi Peggy. I thought that also, that this is a perfect time to make such a dessert. Especially since there are so many farmer's markets around now too. Thanks for your nice comment, I appreciate it.

      This is perfect timing to be reading this recipe. It is hot outside, and many fruits are in season. A chilled dessert like this is a welcome treat. Thanks for your recipe.
