Healthy kid's recipe - easy blackberry and lemon sorbet

Well, since I started making my own sorbet, I can't stop. It is not only tastier and healthier as there are no additives, I can't believe how easy it is. Some of my friends say - 'well you say it is easy' - but it is like anything, once you have had a go a couple of times it becomes second nature. This recipe is great as it gives the kids an extra boost of vitamin C because of the lemons.

Blackberry and lemon sorbet

1 punnet of blackberries, washed
Juice of 2 1/2 lemon
150g sugar
150ml water

1. Start by making the syrup. In a saucepan, place the water and sugar and simmer until the sugar has completely dissolved
2. In a blender or with a hand blender, blend the blackberries and lemon juice together. (you can pass this mixture through a sieve should you wish to have a smoother finished sorbet)
3. Once the syrup has completely cooled, place in a plastic tub with a lid and place in the freezer. With a folk, every hour or so give the mixture a stir to get rid of any ice crystals until the sorbet has fully frozen.
4. Serve and enjoy

If you feel the sorbet is a little too lemony, just add less of the juice.
