It is hot. We are experiencing temperatures over 100 degrees this week and we aren’t used to it. I want to do nothing more than sit in a nice cool bath and eat this icy cold cucumber basil sorbet. Regular ice cream, so rich and heavy seems like a poor choice when temperatures soar. Utterly refreshing, there is nothing like the clean, fresh taste of cucumber to cool you down.
- 4 cups chopped cucumber
- ½ cup honey or maple syrup
- ½ cup fresh basil leaves
- 1 tablespoon rum
- Put all the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Transfer to a container and refrigerate until cold. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and process until the mixture is thick and creamy.
