Strawberry Sherbet

This Strawberry Sherbet is as simple as it gets for a refreshing summer treat! 3 ingredients and you have yourself the perfect dessert.

Even though today in the DMV it’s chilly and rainy that does not stop me from dreaming of pools, parties, and picnics. 

If you stop and think about it; when was the last time you actually grabbed a checkered blanket, a basket, some sandwiches, and a pretty place to park your butt to enjoy a relaxing lunch with someone special? I know it has been quite some time for me that’s for sure. 

Picnics have come so far and most people serve way more than a bologna and cheese sandwich with a bag of chips. Since our lives are so hectic these days, we can rarely plan and execute something so intimate; so when it’s possible, you have to make it memorable.

This recipe uses some inexpensive ingredients that are flavorful and brings back all the beautiful childhood memories of spending summers outside, dripping a popsicle all over your clothes from the neighborhood ice cream truck.
