You’ll Be Craving This Three-Ingredient Sorbet All Summer Long

Nothing delivers a refreshing relief on a hot summer day quite like a soft-serve treat. From ice cream to sorbet, these beloved desserts are not just fun to eat but are now easier to make — thanks to a new, viral recipe.

We can thank the creators behind @crowdedkitchen for this colorful, three-ingredient concoction, who has provided the perfect homemade and grown-up variation of this summer favorite. Typically, the process of making ice cream consists of churning, mixing, and balancing just the right ingredients in order to create a dessert that’s chilled and served to perfection. Now, this new simplified alternative has taken the stress out of the process, so we can make this homemade treat whenever our sweet tooth strikes.

STRAWBERRY LEMONADE SORBET 🍓🍋🍨 Just 3 ingredients & served up in the cutest lemon half for an easy summer treat that we can’t get enough of. #strawberry #pinklemonade #strawberrylemonade #lemontok #lemon

Strawberries and lemons have been a longstanding flavor combination with refreshing qualities that are synonymous with summer. And when mixed, sweetened, and frozen together, magic happens. To bring this treat to life, you’ll need a few tools and ingredients, which include: a food processor, lemons (or lemon juice), frozen strawberries, and honey or agave (for your desired sweetness levels).

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Cut the lemons in half lengthwise.
  2. Squeeze the juice of the lemons into a bowl, making sure to remove the seeds. (Keep the lemon halves.)
  3. Combine the frozen strawberries, lemon juice, and honey/agave in a food processor.
  4. Blend the mixture in the food processor until it is thoroughly combined and has a sorbet-like consistency.
  5. Serve the sorbet right away for a soft-serve dessert.

The beauty of this recipe lies in its ease of creation and its versatility. If strawberries aren’t your speed, check out these two alternative flavor combinations. Substitute with mango and lime for a tropical spin on the recipe, or keep things sweet and tangy by using peaches as your base and raspberries as your filling.

Skylar Marshai is known for her extravagant style, and her hair is no exception. But now, she’s giving her hair a break and focusing on hair care with SheaMoisture’s Bond Repair Collection. “I feel like my hair has always been an extension of my storytelling because I know it's so innately linked to my self-expression that I've been thinking a lot about how my love for crafting my hair into these different forms and shapes has honestly never given it a chance to just be,” Skylar explains.

Breaking up is hard to do. That’s the hook of a song from way back in the day, and as someone who has broken up with people before and had a few end things with me, I can certainly attest to that very fact. Thing is, when it comes to this particular topic, sinceI am also a life coach in the area of relationships, I do think that what can make a break-up so much more painful — or at least triggering — is how someone chooses to do it…and boy, if the gray rock method is not one of the most cowardly ones out here — WHEW.
