Cherry Sorbet Recipe

Cherry Sorbet

A cherry-licious ice cold treat on a hot summer day.

First on my list was sorbet. Cherry ice is my favorite summer flavor but I was really amazed at how much better cherry ice tastes when using real cherries and not the artificial cherry flavor we are all used to. The deep red color is all natural, no color added. Although pitting the cherries is a bit time consuming, it’s well worth the end results.

These would make great tasting ice pops too if you don’t have an ice cream maker. Use your sweetener of choice, Stevia of course could be used in place of the sugar or agave if that is what you prefer, without the sugar a serving is 2 points+.
