Yummy and Low-Fat Lemon/Lime Sorbet

Author Notes: This is my go-to recipe for sorbet. You can improvise easily, using crushed strawberries and reducing the citrus juice to 3 tablespoons. Or used crushed peaches in season, or any other fruit you wish. A very versatile recipe. Guests always love it, and it makes quite a lot. I am not sure where this recipe comes from. I have it written by hand in an old notebook.thirdchild
