Recipe: Lemon and Mint Sorbet

Continuing with the theme of gluten-free recipes featuring mint I just had to share this amazing lemon and mint sorbetrecipe fromAustralian Gourmet Traveller website newsletter. (Reposted from Illawarra Gluten Free)

This tastes just as you would imagine: light and tangy, with the lingering flavour of mint.
