I liked it. I needed to add about 1/4 cup water to get the blender to mix it properly. I think I will thaw the berries next time. It is a bit like having a frozen yogurt without the dairy.

@aek1: Sorry that this recipe did not work for you. The measurements are right, i.e for 4 servings you should use either 2 1/2 cups or 300 g of berry mix. This way you could use the measurement method that works best for you, i.e. either read on the package the weight of your product or put it in a cup and measure. The recipe is very tolerant and works as well if you put a little more or a little less berries. I suspect that in your case you used berries that had been in your freezer for a long time and were all lumped together. Hence, texture and taste will be penalized. As you can read in other comments, both in FR and EN, other reviewers had excellent results and this recipe has 99% that would make it again (with 84 reviews sofar). Wish you better luck on your next recipe.

Okay, there are a lot of things that don't work with this recipe: - The measurements in Imperial (cups) don't match the metric amounts; I had to phone SOS Cuisine to ask which measurements I was to go by, and the recipe developer said to use the Metric measurements - Unless you have an incredibly powerful blender (and mine is a Cuisinart which is pretty good!), the frozen fruit must defrost for AT LEAST 30 minutes before it can be blended with the other ingredients. I had to let it defrost for 45 minutes - The recipe says to blend the berries, lemon juice, and icing sugar "until homogenous." What does that mean?! When I poured it--yes, poured!--the mixture into the container for freezing, it looked like a smoothie. - As per both the French and English reviews, I allowed the sorbet to thaw for 35 minutes before I served it. It had turned completely icy and tasted as if I was chewing on an ice cube that happened to be berry-coloured. This was not a delicious recipe at all! The only reason I gave it even 1 star is because it wasn't the most difficult concoction to make. Other than that, there are so many wonderful (better-tasting!) sorbets that can be bought. Buy something delicious instead!

This is my go-to recipe for dessert topping. It's super quick and easy and everyone loves it. It tastes much better than store bought sorbet.

Great, simple recipe. My blender also had a hard time with the frozen berries so I added about half a cup of plain yogurt. Delicious!!

The kids LOVED this recipe... I will be stocking up on frozen berries and fruit the next time it goes on sale because this is going to be a staple in our home. Thanks for another great recipe!

Excellent and super quick to make. I ended up having to add a bit of orange juice seeing as my blender just wouldn't work on the frozen berries. I only added about a third of a cup. I think more than that would compromise the flavor. Someone mentioned trying honey rather than the icing sugar and I certainly will try that too!
