Kiwi-Lime Sorbet

This year for our St. Patrick's Day treat, we are doing something light and fruity. It also just happens to be naturally green. It is a super fast and easy Kiwi sorbet that has the addition of limeade concentrate to bump up the flavor a little bit.

This sorbet is soo easy. All you do is peel the kiwi into the bowl of a food processor or blender, add a little limeade concentrate, and a few Tablespoons of sugar. I added the sugar gradually, so that I could make sure it wasn't too sweet. I recommend adding a little sugar at a time, then blending the ingredients and tasting it, so that you get the level of sweetness you want. Freeze the puree in your ice cream maker and a few hours later you have a lovely green treat.

My kids are about to get off the bus and this is going to be a fun after school treat. Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

Here is the recipe for Kiwi-Lime Sorbet from epicurious
* I did not add all the sugar at once- I added 2 Tablespoons and pureed it in the food processor and then tasted it. I added another Tablespoon, pureed and tasted. I ended up adding 4-5 Tablespoons of sugar.

I love this for St. Patrick's Day. I can't wait to try it and I think it is good advice to add the sugar a bit at a time. I like things tart. Thanks.
