April is #berrylove month! To bring in the excitement of fresh fruit, I wanted to make a simple and delicious fresh fruit sorbet with only a small amount of added sugar. It’s a healthy and delicious way to eat your fruit, especially on the hot summer days coming up.

Gluten Free Blackberry Orange Sorbet
Servings: 4 small bowls or cups
Prep Time:Â 15 minutes
Freeze Time:Â 20 minutes
Needed Tools: Ice Cream Maker, fine strainer
6 oz blackberries
1 cara cara orange, peeled
2 lemons, peeled
3 tbsp water
3 tbsp granulated sugar
In a small bowl, combine the berries, orange, and lemons. Juice with an immersion blender until a fine juice is formed, about 1-3 minutes. Pour the juice through a fine grater to remove any seeds and non-blended pulp.
Set the juice aside. In a small microwaveable bowl, combine the sugar and water. Heat in 30 second intervals, or until the sugar has dissolved. Add to the juice and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
Pour the juice into an ice cream maker, and churn until the juice has frozen into a sorbet. Enjoy!
As an alternative to a sorbet,Â you can add 1/3 Â cup plain yogurt to the juice for a fresh, healthy smoothie!
