Yogurt Lime Sorbet

Temperature is soaring day by day! Though there are thunderstorms and rains but the mercury is not going down as such.. With these hot summer days you need simple food and lots of juices and water. Even you crave for cold items like fruit juices, softdrinks, mocktails and obviously icecreams...Today after a long gap I have come up with a simple frozen dessert... No it's not icecream though we are scraming for icecream! However, this is similar to icecream...Today's recipe is Yogurt-Lime Sorbet. Do you know what is sorbet? Is sorbet or icecream  same? What is the difference between sorbet and icecream? I know lot of questions coming to your mind.


Here is the answer,

Sorbet = water+sugar+fruit (flavouring agent)
Icecream = milk/cream+sugar+fruit(flavouring agent)

Sorbet is more icy in texture whereas Icecream is creamy as the name suggests.

I have used to famous ingredients of summer to make my yogurt lime sorbet. The key ingredients are Yogurt and Lime. Both are hit during the summer and it cools your body too. No fancy ingredients require to prepare this yogurt lime sorbet. Even you don't need any icecream maker. Just try it out at home and let me know how it was.
