Frozen Goodie No. 2

One day, I'm going to get the Kitchenaid Ice Cream maker attachment, but until then, I'm bookmarking ice cream/sorbet recipes that don't require a maker. More physical labor is involved but I'd say my first try was a success!
This recipe from the Kitchn requires only 3 ingredients and some elbow grease. Since it called for 2 cups of citrus juice, I decided on using a combo and also picking the biggest citrus fruit I could use: grapefruit (makes juicing much easier)! 
Aside from zesting and juicing the citrus (I used lemons, limes and grapefruit), the most labor intensive work comes from churning the sorbet yourself (what normally would be done if one had an ice cream maker). 

DIY churning involves a fork and stirring/breaking up the sorbet in half hour increments so it can stay creamy rather than icy as it freezes. This took more muscle the more frozen it got, but in the end, it was so worth it. Just scrape and stir. The result is a creamy, refreshing, light sorbet to enjoy on a hot summer day. 

If you enjoy a nice homemade dessert, try making some sorbet soon. Just follow this recipe
