Refreshing homemade #sorbet is easier than you think with new season berries for inspiration. 500g frozen strawberries or other fruit, 1/2 cup yoghurt, 1/4 cup sugar. Put the frozen fruit, yoghurt and sugar in a food processor container along with a couple of tablespoons of water. Process until pureed and creamy. If the fruit does not break down completely, add a little more water through the feed tube, a tablespoon or two at a time; be careful not to over-process or the sorbet will liquefy.
Serve immediately or freeze for later. #Recipe #homecooking #nomnomnom
