Hi, girls (and guys, if you happen to be reading)!
Take note of this one, this recipe will knock your socks off and make everyone think you slaved in the kitchen for hours coming up with this gourmet sorbet that is so tasty and delish!
My friend, Tammy, invited me over for dinner one night and served this for dessert and I was blown away by how delicious it was and how easy too. I asked her to do a tutorial for me and show us all how it’s done. Tammy got this recipe from Cooking Light.
