I'm scooping up our frozen ambrosia for the Sugar High Friday Event, focusing on berry desserts.
Estimated Cost: $5.00
Notes: Make these with fresh berries only when you can find them on sale. Otherwise, stick with frozen.
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
3 cups raspberries, fresh or frozen, thawed
1 teaspoon lime zest
1 tablespoon lime juice
In a small saucepan, bring water and sugar to a simmer over medium heat. When sugar is completely dissolved, remove from heat and cool. Meanwhile, blend berries in the bowl of a food processor or blender until smooth. Press through a strainer to remove seeds. Combine syrup, berries, lime zest and juice in the bowl of an ice cream maker. Process according to manufacturer's direction.
