Homemade Black Cherry Sherbet

I love sherbet. Almost more than ice cream....Almost. I never thought that I could make ice cream without an ice cream maker until last week when I found the two ingredient ice cream recipe. Since that turned out so well I went on a quest to find a homemade sherbet recipe that didn't require an ice cream maker. I was so happy when I found one. I was worried about the sherbet being the right consistency but it turned out great! What a tasty refreshing summertime treat!

Homemade Black Cherry Sherbet

1 lb cherries (I bought frozen cherries with the pits already removed)
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 cup milk ( I used 2 percent)

Put all the ingredients into a food processor or blender and process until pureed and creamy. Add additional milk as needed to improve the consistency and stop occasionally to scrape down the sides. Be careful not to over-process the sherbet into liquid. Serve immediately or freeze. To serve later, just allow 10 to 15 minutes for the sherbet to soften at room temperature. Enjoy!
