  • Pour the fruit-syrup mixture into a blender. Add lime zest, juice and salt; blend until smooth. Pour into a large bowl and refrigerate until cold, 4 hours or overnight.

  • Freeze the sorbet mixture in an ice cream maker, according to the manufacturer's directions. (Alternatively, pour the mixture into ice cube trays and freeze until solid, about 4 hours. Unmold cubes, place half in a food processor fitted with the chopping blade, and process, scraping the sides as necessary, until fairly smooth but still icy. Repeat with the remaining cubes.)

Tips

Make Ahead Tip: Freeze in a resealable plastic container for up to 1 week.

Bad for blood sugar even in a healthy person How about adding Stevia or Truvia instead of the sugar and light corn syrup? I did! Cons: I see nothing healthy about 2/3 cups of sugar and the adding 2 tablesoons of light corn syup. Read More
