It isn't packed with excessive amounts of sugar, and yet it's full of flavor and features a pleasant texture. Perhaps best of all, it's also really easy to make!

The sorbet will be crumbly at first, but keep blending until a smooth texture is formed. Add an additional 1-2 tbs water if needed to encourage blending.

Step 4

If the sorbet is firm enough, enjoy right away. If it is too soft to scoop, simply transfer to a sealable container and freeze for about 2-3 hours, or until desired texture is achieved. Serves 4-6 people.
