Sorbet & Popsicle Roundup

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.

4. Popsicles. Peach. Blueberry. Strawberry. The recipes I posted in the past were slightly different but I have since standardized the measurements.
