Every time I make something thinking it is summer it get cold again. I will admit I have not made ice cream or the likeness since I was a child. Since we had all of the indigents we gave this one a try. The man did not seem to be very impressed he would probably would of liked, a LIKE IT from Cold Stone Creamery with nothing on it plain 1200 cal. I on the other hand, would rather spend my calories on two desserts or another entree. Here is a fun and easy low cal dessert and pretty also. I found this recipe in an old Light & Tasty Magazine. One 1/2 cup serving equals 95 calories and a trace of fat you cant beat that. The color was just beautiful. I did make one little change that would lower the calories even more to the original recipe. I halved the sugar and put half honey.Don't you just want to pick up the spoon and take a bite. The mint freshens your breath with each bite. Watermelon Berry Sorbet
1 cup water 1/4 sugar 1/4 honey 2 cups cubed seedless watermelon 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled 1 tablespoon minced fresh mint
In a small heavy saucepan, bring the water and sugar and honey to a boil. Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat; cool slightly. Place the watermelon and strawberries in a blender or food processor; add sugar syrup. Cover and process for 2-3 minutes or until smooth. Strain and discard seeds and pulp. Transfer puree to a 13 in.x9-in. x 2-in. dish. Freeze for 1 hour or until edges begin to firm. Stir in mint. Freeze 2 hours longer or until firm. Just before serving, transfer to a blender or food processor; cover and process for 2-3 minutes or until smooth.
