Think you don’t have time to make homemade sorbet? Think again! This tart and refreshing Kiwi Lime Sorbet has only four ingredients, and since one of them is frozen limeade concentrate, there is no pre-chilling necessary. If an automatic ice cream machine is available, this delicious treat can be made in less than 30 minutes. This is a great summertime dessert, not only because it is cold, but because it is very low in calories and has no fat.
Automatic Ice Cream Machines are inexpensive and very convenient. There’s no salt or ice to layer; the bowl of the machine can be stored in the freezer, and sorbet or other frozen desserts can be made on the spur of the moment. The machine does the work while the cook relaxes.
When preparing this sorbet, it’s important to make sure the kiwi fruits are ripe and soft; they can even be a little overripe. Kiwi fruits are easy to peel with a teaspoon, so this is very quick to put together.
