Homemade Fruit Sorbet

Note: One of the things we have been enjoying lately is sorbet. With all the fresh fruit popping up at the farmer's market it is one of the easiest but most refreshing things to make in this summer heat. Plus, it is an easy way to get the boys to eat a lot of different fruits!

Homemade Fruit Sorbet

4 cups chopped fruit*
2-4 Tbsp. sugar
juice of 1/2 lemon

Chop up your chosen fruits and put them on a plate. Make sure they are separated and don't touch. Cover with Saran Wrap and put in the freezer until frozen. Pop frozen fruit pieces in the blender until thoroughly blended. Add sugar and lemon juice. Pour mixture into small serving dishes and put back into the freezer until ready to serve.

*Choose your favorite types and favorite combinations when it comes to fruit. Some of our favorites are strawberry/banana; pineapple/banana; peaches/strawberry; watermelon/strawberry (adding orange juice instead of lemon)
