"Tried this last night with strawberries instead of blackberries. It was delicious. I also did not strain it and hubby loved it, and wants me to make more,"

"To cut calories, I only used 1 cup sweetener - I used xylitol. This cut calories to 125 per 1/2 cup. Also, to strain the berries and xylitol, I processed, then put part of the mixture in my large metal strainer and used my egg beater, stirring and pressing to get all the juice out."

"We have an overabundance of blackberries from our blackberry bushes this year. I made this recipe to use some of them in a new way. We loved it! My husband especially likes that there are no seeds in the sherbet. The next time, I'm going to try to cut back on the sugar just a little bit. It was just a tad too sweet for us."

"This is so easy and tastes so good. Made it with strawberries also, just as good. As soon as the blueberries are ready to pick, I am going to try them tool"
