I know, I’m a day early again this week. I really didn’t think that whole Frozen Friday thing through, huh?
This Lemonade Iced Tea Sorbet was the very first thing my ice cream maker ever made for me. Seriously, the night I received the ice cream maker I threw the bowl in the freezer and then stood there, opening the freezer door every 5 minutes, waiting for it to freeze. I had been saving this recipe for months and was way excited to finally get to try it. And it was obviously amazing because I’m sharing it on the blog for the second time!
If you love a refreshing glass of sweet tea with lemon in the summer, this is perfect for you! It’s sweet with just a bit of lemon and you can change up the flavor by using different teas. I used a black tea with orange for this batch and it was extra delicious. I have made this a number of times and each time I stop the ice cream maker about halfway through so I can have a slushy one. I think it’s my favorite way to enjoy this recipe!
