JoJack's (a local coffee shop,) and wondered if I could make a similar concoction and turn it into sorbet. So, I asked C what fruit she wanted, and when she decided on raspberries, I set to work. This is what I came up with:
Pretty Raspberry Sorbet
12 oz frozen raspberries (about 3 1/2 cups)
2 cups green tea
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
Brew 2 cups of green tea in a small pot. While it is still hot, add sugar and stir until it is completely mixed in. Transfer tea and sugar mixture to a blender, add in the raspberries and lemon juice. Puree mixture. At this point, if you have time, strain the mixture through cheesecloth in order to get the seeds out. (I didn't have the time. The seeds didn't bother the girls or me too much.) Cool in refrigerator, and then process in an ice cream maker until you remember it or your kid says, "Mom, I think the ice cream must be done by now!" (Obviously, I forgot about mine, but I would say 20 minutes should be good.) If you want a really sweet sorbet, you might want to add another 1/2 cup of sugar. Because this was for my kids, I kept it to the minimum; the 1/2 cup of sugar was just enough to balance the tartness of the raspberries without adding extra sweetness to the flavor. Hope you enjoy it, I know we did!
