April is #berrylove month! To bring in the excitement of fresh fruit, I wanted to make a simple and delicious fresh fruit sorbet with only a small amount of added sugar. It's a healthy and delicious way to eat your fruit, especially on the hot summer days coming up.

Gluten Free Blackberry Orange Sorbet
Servings: 4 small bowls or cups
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Freeze Time: 20 minutes
Needed Tools: Ice Cream Maker, fine strainer
6 oz blackberries
1 cara cara orange, peeled
2 lemons, peeled
3 tbsp water
3 tbsp granulated sugar
In a small bowl, combine the berries, orange, and lemons. Juice with an immersion blender until a fine juice is formed, about 1-3 minutes. Pour the juice through a fine grater to remove any seeds and non-blended pulp.
Pour the juice into an ice cream maker, and churn until the juice has frozen into a sorbet. Enjoy!
As an alternative to a sorbet, you can add 1/3 cup plain yogurt to the juice for a fresh, healthy smoothie!
