    Summer berry Italian ice

     

    • 1/2 Cup Water
    • 2 1/2 Cups Diced Mixed Berries-strawberries, blueberries, black berries
    • 1 Cup Sugar
    • 3 Tbsp. Fresh Lemon Juice
    • As Needed Whipped Cream and Berries to Garnish

     

    Heat water, berries, and sugar until just boiling. Simmer covered for about 5 minutes or until berries are very tender. Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice. Carefully puree the mixture in a blender adding water as necessary to get a smooth puree. Strain through a fine strainer to remove seeds. Add water as necessary to get a good strain. Let cool to room temperature and divide evenly into serving containers or ice shaver cups. Freeze fully for 4 hours or overnight.

    When ice is frozen it can be shaved with an ice shaver for a fluffy texture, or quickly pulsed in a food processor, or served as is. Garnish with the berries, a crisp cookie and a mint spring. Enjoy!
