Rhubarb Sorbet

This next Monday is Memorial day if you’ve forgotten, with that being the kick off to summer everyone is sure to start looking for lighter and cooler summer treats. Summer in Florida is slow for work meaning I will have plenty of time to keep preparing recipes and working on new flavor combinations for easy and enjoyable summer entertainment.

In the meantime I’m making use of late spring fruits such as Rhubarb, cherries, mango’s, and strawberries. This is my first time using Rhubarb and I wasn’t sure what to do with it. I just did a strawberry jam recently so that idea was out. I’m trying to avert from making pies and cakes because between Brandon and I we don’t eat enough sweets and it would just go to waste. I did some research and after a little planning decided to make a sorbet. It’s an effortless project and the results are sure to make you happy. The weather down here has been getting hotter by the minute and my friends and family up northΒ  say its starting to get hot as well. Nothing goes better with the heat than the delightful smooth texture of a frozen treat. Did I mention this is a healthier alternative to ice cream? I love ice cream myself but sometimes depending on the area your in, heat and dairy don’t mix. The only downfall to this recipe is you have to have an ice cream maker to make the sorbet. If you don’t have one you can look up other options on how to make a sorbet minus the machine. Or you can make popsicles, another great way to cool off!
