Frozen Summer Berry Surprise

Nothing beats an ice cold treat on a hot summer day. Why not cool off with something tasty! 

The warm sun came out and inspired a new dessert. I wanted to make something sweet and healthy that represents my love for summer and all the delicious berries!

Start with homemade Mixed Berry Sorbet.

Make a homemade crust from walnuts, dates, cranberries and cinnamon!

Press into favorite cookie cutter or small dish.

Top with a sliced banana and sprinkle with cranberries.
Pour the Mixed Berry Sorbet on top and freeze for 3 hours

 Serve with your fresh fruit!
I couldn't resist these deep red cherries!
