Lime Sorbet with Blackberry Sauce

posted in: Recipes 0

As mentioned in previous posts, I love the flavor of lime! This recipe is a dairy free dessert highlighting that green ball of goodness. For me, I like to spread out the sorbet making process over a few days. This is because I feel like you need one night to allow the base to cool and one night for the sorbet to harden. I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients

Sorbet

  • 1 1/4 Cup Water
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Cup Lime Juice

Blackberry Sauce

  • 3 Cups Blackberries
  • 2 Tablespoons Water
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar

Graham Cracker Crumbs

  • 4 Graham Cracker Squares
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter

To Serve

  • Caramel Sauce

Instructions

Day 1

    Sorbet

    • Dissolve the sugar in water in a small pot over medium heat, about 7 minutes.
    • While the sugar water mixture (simple syrup) is cooling, juice the limes. I have a handy dandy citrus press that works really well.
    • When the juice is cooled (about an hour), add the juice to the simple syrup and put in fridge overnight.

    Blackberry sauce

    • Heat blackberries in a small pot over medium heat.
    • Add sugar and water.
    • Cover and cook, stirring and crushing the blackberries as you go, for about 30 minutes.

    Day 2

    • Add the sorbet mixture to you ice cream maker and let it do its job.
    • (I like my sorbet to be hard, so I always put it in the freezer overnight after making in the machine, but you can eat it now if you'd like).

    Graham Cracker Crumbs

    • Add the graham crackers to a blender/food processor and buzz until fine dust.
    • Add the melted butter and buzz again to make a sand-like mixture.
    • Lay out the mixture on a baking dish and bake at 350 for 10 minutes.

    To Serve

    • Swirl your caramel sauce on the plate. I like trying to make a design with it! Spread some of the graham cracker crumbs on the plate, add a scoop of the lime sorbet and then drizzle with the blackberry sauce
