Refreshing Ice Creams and Sorbets

June 19, 2010

Is it hot where you are? I’m enjoying the heat. Summer only comes around once a year, and it’s a great excuse to enjoy some refreshing ice cream. I posted some great frozen treats on my blog last year, so I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you. Last weekend I picked strawberries and pretty quickly turned some of them into Strawberry Buttermilk Gelato. This year’s berries were good but not quite as sweet as last year, so I used the full amount of sugar called for in the recipe. Let your tastebuds be your guide. I sliced a bunch more of the berries and froze them in 2 1/2 cup portions so they’re ready to go for future batches of this great treat.

How about some Watermelon Sorbet

…or perhaps some Lime Coconut Ice Cream?

All of these taste great and aren’t overboard in the calorie and fat department. Enjoy and stay cool!


  1. ! Wow – those look beautiful Jill! It’s 50 and raining today, so no ice cream! But I do have my new copy of Scoop and a new ice cream maker. I haven’t tried sorbets yet! What a great idea (have had my fill of egg yolk ice creams – great, but filling)! Beautiful photographs!

  2. All of these sound wonderful and look absolutely gorgeous. I need to get busy!

  3. Yay for light summer treats! That coconut-lime one is calling my name.

  4. All three recipes sound delicious and I think Dave would especially love the watermelon sorbet. I am going to have to make that for him when I buy some watermelon. I love all the strawberries you bought!

  5. These ALL look delicious! LOVE your pictures….What refreshing treats. It is definitely hot here in Massachusetts. *sigh* I don’t like to sweat.
