Since yesterday, we made homemade lime sorbet, it’s only fitting that our recipe for the day include it, right?
And now, a tasty, refreshing tribute to my favorite George Lucas creation.
Today’s recipe comes from the “Wookiee Cookies” cookbook….which I have on my Nook.
Juice of 3 limes
1 packet Splenda (or 1/2 packet Stevia)
10 oz sparkling water
1/2 cup lime sorbet or sherbet
Combine the lime juice, sweetener, & sparkling water & stir. (NOTE: This, by itself, is fantastic. I always keep sparkling water on hand to make my own fresh fruit sodas. Refreshing, low cal, and much better for you than store-bought soda—and way cheaper than those home-soda-maker machines.) If you don’t have the ingredients onhand for the homemade soda, you could substitute Diet Sierra Mist/7Up/Sprite Zero, etc.
Place a scoop of sherbet or sorbet in your favorite tall glass, then pour the homemade soda over it. Stir, & add a straw (green, of course).
Drink it, you must!
Happy May the Fourth, and may the Force be with you!
