Strawberry Orange Sorbet with Mint

Hi there! Wow, it's been way too long that I've posted. I've missed it. It's not that I haven't been cooking but it's been pretty busy around here. Kyle and I got married June 15th and it was the most beautiful day of my life! Kyle and I have been married now for a little over a month and are loving every minute of it.




I have a recipe that I've been wanting to share and I'm glad I'm able to finally sit down and share it with you. You will be so surprised how easy it is to make sorbet and will want to make it before the Summer is over. For the 4th of July I wanted to make something festive but also Fun and Healthy! (Of course!) So I decided to make a strawberry orange Sorbet with mint.

Check out these strawberries! 

                              
First you will want to slice  and hull your strawberries and stick in a large pot.

                              

Once your strawberries are sliced and ready add your sugar, orange juice, mint leaves and water.

                               

Boil on medium heat and boil until sugar is dissolved.  

      

Once your mixture has boiled for 8 to 10 minutes turn the heat off and use your emersion blender to blend smooth. You can also use a normal blender if you don't have a hand blender. 

                                

You will have a little foam and that is fine.

                               

Since I was taking this to a 4th of July party I transported it in glass jars.

                                

All that's left is to pour the mix into your ice cream maker and mix until frozen!

                                

I didn't get a pretty picture of the final product. :(
