From the moment I read Annie's post on the Strawberry Buttermilk Sherbet I knew that I had to make it. I had planned on it over the weekend using some of the fresh fruit that I had just bought but things got busy and we ate the fruit before I got around doing the sherbet. On Tuesday, while looking for something in the freezer, I found a bag of guava puree and immediately thought that I could use this delicious tropical fruit for the sherbet. I followed the recipe but substituted one cup of sugar with 1/2 cup of agave nectar. I didn't have an ice cream maker so I just poured the sherbet in a container and placed it in the freezer.
Last night I couldn't resist and had to have a taste of the sherbet while it wasn't yet completely frozen. It was amazing! Loved the flavor and the creaminess that comes from the buttermilk, without the calories of heavy cream. I'll make this again with fresh fruit but in the meantime I have some mango puree waiting to become a sherbet. I also have a brand new ice cream maker that somehow ended up in my shopping cart. I know, I have no will power.
Thank you Annie for a wonderful, yummy recipe!
