Guest Post: Summer Berry Sorbet

When it comes to Summer recipes, there is nothing I like more than a little sorbet (or skinny ice cream, as I call it)!  So, with the lovely hot weather we have been enjoying, I thought I’d share this wonderful guest post from Jess, who writes over at Jessthetics, a recipe for Summer Berry Sorbet.  Go check out her blog, she’s a fabulous seamstress too and a real lover of all things environmentally and ethically friendly!

1 Hello! It’s Jess here, from Jessthetics. I’m so excited to be guest posting on Frugally Peachy today. I have a confession to make – I’m not that fond of ice cream. It’s okay, but it’s not my favourite treat by any means. I much prefer sorbet! The good news is that sorbet is really easy and cheap to make, and it’s (probably) healthier than ice cream! My recipe is for summer berry sorbet because I’m in love with cherries right now, but you could substitute pretty much any fruit that you fancy, or that needs using up.

2You wil need: 1 cup of blueberries, 1 cup of rasberries, 1 cup of cherries, 1/4 cup of sugar and a blender.

3First, remove the stones and stalks from your cherries, and blend all of your fruit, except for a couple of berries which will make a nice garnish later!

4Next you need to make some simple syrup. As the title suggests, it really is simple! Pop your sugar in a pan with 200ml of water and stir over a medium heat until the sugar’s dissolved. Then bring the water to the boil and turn off the heat.

5Once your simple syrup has cooled, combine it with the blended fruit and put the mixture in the freezer. It’ll take hours to freeze, so I suggest doing this in the morning ready to eat in the evening, or leaving it in the freezer overnight.

6Once your mixture has frozen, blend it together until smooth and put it back in the freezer for half an hour.

And that’s it! Scoop out your sorbet, add a couple of berries on top and gobble it up before it melts. Much more refreshing than ice cream, am I right?

7Thanks for letting me guest post on your blog Emma, and I hope you have a wonderful month of writing!

Thanks Jess…I might be a little too distracted to write with this gorgeous recipe! Thanks for sharing!
