Banana Citrus Sorbet
A friend who loved to entertain gave me the recipe for this lovely sorbet. Serving it as a refreshing special course adds a bit of elegance to my favorite meal. If you don't have an ice cream freezer, put the mixture into ice cube trays and stir occasionally while freezing. Mix in a blender when ready to serve.

- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 3 medium ripe bananas, cut into chunks
- 1-1/2 cups sugar
- 2 cups cold water
