Rated 5 out of 5 by PAGUY from Perfect Low Fat Dessert! I made this today and it was fabulous and easy to make. Afterwards I experimented a little more. Use more spice for a more seasonal taste otherwise go east there. You can also adjust your berry mix and major on the ones you love the most. Also, the less blackberries and blueberries you use the less darkened and more red the sorbet will be. Add a bit more sweetener if you have a sweet tooth, otherwise the taste is rich, healthy and perfect. If you want smooth sorbet with some chunks of berries, add a few more right after your four mounds and blend about 20 seconds longer. Have fun.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Grilling Sensations from Needs a little tweaking to your taste This recipe sounded fantastic and I think it can be if tweaked to your tastes. I found the quantity of ginger root and mint to be fairly overwhelming. Ginger root and mint can vary in potency so I would recommend adding it to taste as you go. Using the stock recipe I didn't taste much of the flavor of the berries. Texture and color were excellent. It needs at least 1 hour and preferably 2 to set up the portioned scoops.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Wendell from Great dessert but unclear re addition of ice cubes Recipe in Step 5 calls for addition of 'ice cubes' but doesn't state an amount. The same recipe in my Vitamix recipe book does not call for addition of ice cubes. Made it according to the recipe book and turned out fine. Used less ginger (1/2") and fresh from the garden mint as per other comments. According to final taste, could have used more ginger but the amount of mint (5 g) was about right.
