    Fire Luscious Lime Mint Sorbet

    Makes 6-8 Servings (about 1 quart)

    2 cups water
    2 cups granulated sugar
    3 cups packed fresh mint leaves, washed, dried, and chopped
    1 cup fresh lime juice
    2 tablespoons Fiber (Like Metamucil)
    1 tablespoon grated lime zest
    2 organic egg whites*

    Make a mint syrup by combining water, sugar, and mint leaves in a small saucepan or microwave-safe bowl. Heat and stir until sugar dissolves, bring to a boil and simmer 2 minutes.

    Chill. Strain syrup & make sure to press leaves to get all the flavor!

    Add syrup and remaining ingredients in blender, mixing well on high speed.

    Great recipe! If you don't have an ice cream maker, you can put it in the freezer in a flat casserole dish, stirring with a fork every hour for 5-7 hours. It makes an icier version, sometimes called Granita. I make lavender and rose sorbets that way all the time and they're perfect on a hot summer day. I love love love lime and mint and can't wait to try this out.
