Cooling off

After the delicious and too tempting strawberry margarita ice cream I made a few nights ago (and only blogged about today) I needed a frozen treat that wouldn't go straight to my thighs. This frosty treat is soooo good it's sure to hit the spot this summer.

I might just play on adding alcohol later on but this slushy-type sorbet was the perfect accompaniment to our grilled burgers and zucchini. Next time we grill we have to eat outside... it's just been sooo nice lately. And it's light all the way until 8pm! I love summer!

Lemonade Iced Tea Sorbet
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 4 regular sized tea bags (I used the recommended English Breakfast)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup ice water
  • mint sprigs and sliced lemon for decoration
Combine boiling water and tea bags in a large bowl; steep for 5 minutes. Discard the tea bags. Add sugar to the tea mixture, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Cool completely. Stir in juice and 1 cup ice water. Chill 1 hour.

Pour tea mixture into the freezer can of an ice-cream freezer; freeze according to manufacturer's directions. Spoon sorbet into a freezer-safe container. Cover and freeze until firm, about 1 hour. Garnish with mint sprigs and lemon if desired.

Eight 1/2 cup servings at 1 WW point each

And a picture of our delicious dinner... Ground sirloin burger, grilled onions, fresh roma tomatoes on a light english muffin with a side of grilled zucchini :)
