Strawberry and Blueberry Sherbet



3 cups of the fruit of your choice (I used frozen because it was a better price and easy to find)

1 cup sugar

2/3 cup milk

2/3 cup cream or half & half

Juice of ½ a lemon (about 1 Tbsp)

Optional: 1 Tbsp fruity liqueur like Cassis


Cook fruit and sugar over medium high heat until sugar melts and liquid boils.

Cool completely.

Pour fruit mixture in a blender, add milk, cream, and lemon juice.

Blend to combine (I like to leave a little texture instead of a completely smooth puree)

Freeze according to ice cream maker directions adding liquor if desired at the last minute.

Store in the freezer.
