DECISIONS: Skinny Jeans or MAKE THIS: Buttermilk Sorbet with Lime

Our icecream maker has been working overtime this summer! At this point I keep fresh heavy cream and lots of whole milk (and fresh fruits) on hand so we've have a batch of something YUM to cool us off in the freezer during these scorching summer months. This is reaking havoc on these last ten pounds I'd like to get rid of FOR GOOD. I've got a date with some skinny jeans and Beyonce' (the concert!!) to think about... But I digress..

My favorite so far has still been this blackberry sherbet, but this Buttermilk Sorbet with Lime comes in a close second. The lime gave it just the crisp and tart flavor that just screams summer!! I snagged (and adapted) this recipe from Martha Stewart - It was super simple to make.

Combine sugar and 2 cups water in a medium saucepan.  Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves completely, about 10 minutes.  Increase heat, and bring to a boil. Let cool.

In a large bowl, combine sugar syrup with buttermilk and vanilla. Transfer the mixture to an ice-cream maker, and follow manufacturer’s instructions to freeze. When freezing is complete, transfer sorbet to an airtight container, and place in freezer for at least 1 hour.  

Slice limes and squeeze juice from a lime wedge on individual servings just before serving. Sorbet will keep, frozen, for up to 2 weeks.

I'm going to pat myself on the back for these food photos I've been taking recently. I'm getting pretty good eh?

How are you beating the heat this summer? Tried any new recipes lately? Love to hear all about it...
