Mixed Berry Sorbet

It's mid-June in Miami and it's getting HOT in here. How about a refreshing mixed berry sorbet to cool you down? Yes, please. This non-fat, non-dairy, low sugar sorbet is the real deal and tastes just like any other version you would buy MINUS the sugar and calories. Did I also mention you only need 4 simple ingredients? Doesn't get much simpler than that. Go ahead and indulge because there is nothing to feel guilty about. Just beware of brain freeze.

MIXED BERRY SORBET
1 12-ounce bag of frozen mixed berries (I used raspberries, strawberries, blueberries and blackberries, but any combo will work. Just make sure there is no added sugar).
1/2 cup of agave nectar
3 packets of splenda or stevia (or whatever your preference is)
2 cups of water

Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend until combined. Turn on ice cream machine and pour in mixture. Let churn for about 20 to 30 minutes until desired thickness. Scoop and serve!

Also tastes great with chocolate chips on top:


*Side note: If you are shopping around for an ice cream maker, I highly suggest this Cuisinart version I got as a wedding present (Thank you Maria! Xx) from Williams Sonoma. It works perfectly and is super affordable. Happy ice cream making :)
