I do absolutely recommend the ice cream machine I have. I use this Cuisinart model and it’s so fast and easy to use. You simply keep the machine’s bowl in your freezer and whenever you want to make ice cream or sorbet you mix up the ingredients, put the bowl on the machine, start it up, pour in mixture and in less than 20 minutes you have ice cream! No rock salt or ice required.

Strawberry Mint Lime SorbetSource: adapted from Swapna’s Cuisine
1 lb fresh strawberries, hulled (stems cut off)
Juice from one lime
¼ c of finely diced mint leaves
1/3 c sugar
1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender or food processor (I used my immersion blender) and run until thoroughly combined into liquid form.
2. Put the entire mixture into an ice cream freezer/maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. If the ice cream has not yet reached your desired consistency, transfer it to a sealable container and put in the freezer until fully frozen. Freeze any leftovers.
