Lemon Sorbet

Lemon SorbetI made this A+mazing Lemon Sorbet this past weekend. I found the simple recipe over at Allrecipes.com and made a few adaptations. This sorbet is of course dairy and gluten free. The egg whites give it a creamy and fluffy texture and the addition of the grated peel enhance the lemony flavor. This is a low cal and simple dessert to polish off any summer meal. The egg whites are optional.
