    How easy can you get? I don`t bother straining the fruit. We have used peaches, mangoes and apricots, raspberries. Surely the calorie count can`t be very high as there is no cream.

    I used this recipe many times last year and always with rave reviews. I would call it a perfect recipe for yogurt which is what it reminded me of. Very easy to make - this will be my go to recipe for homemade ice cream.

    Excellent, easy recipe! I used low-fat buttermilk when I made this sherbet for Mother's Day and received rave reviews. Great for spring/summer parties.

    Delicious! Made this tonight so simple and refreshing! Will make this again for sure. Will try it with blueberries and raspberries as well!

    We loved this sherbet. I made it as part of our Easter menu, and it was enjoyed by all. Plus, the color is beautiful!

    Absolutely wonderful. I made this for Mother's Day and my mom was delighted. It was super easy to make and my toddler was enthralled with watching the ice cream maker spin around as it thickened up. I can't wait to try it with other fruits. I may try peaches next time. That sounds like such a great pairing with the buttermilk base. The only change I might try is to use a little less sugar. It was very sweet (and delicious) but I don't think it would hurt the recipes to cut back on the sugar a little bit. I will definitely be making this throughout the summer. Who needs storebought ice cream when this is so easy and wonderful?

    It's delicious. Nuff said.

    I hate to be the lone dissenter, but this tasted like a frozen smoothie (and not in a good way). If you are expecting that taste, then you may be pleased with it, but I was underwhelmed. (I followed the directions exactly as written.)

    I made this today and it is wonderful! Has a great, refreshing taste to it for summer. Depending on how ripe the strawberries are, I would tweak the amount of sugar next time. Mine were super ripe, and I bet 3/4 cup of sugar would have been enough. Still tasty and will definitely make again.
