This roundup is for my son. This is probably his favorite food group: fruit in the form of ices (sorbet) or ice pops (popsicles). Sorbet takes a few extra steps but totally worth it.
1. Fruit Sorbet. Very popular and easy to make all year. Any fruit works. I also love mixing different berries like blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries for a deep purple color. Just always be sure to strain the seeds after blending.
2. Herbed Sortbet. The addition of fresh herbs, like lemon verbena, mint or basil, turns a basic sorbet into something more sophisticated.
3. Granita. Any fruit works, especially water heavy varieties. Even cucumber.
