Fabulous Fruit Sorbet

4 cups prepared fruit
2-4 tablespoons sugar, to taste
Juice of half a lemon or lime (to reduce acidity with some fruit use orange juice instead. Specifically fruit like pineapple)

1. Prepare the fruit by peeling and pitting, if necessary, and cut into chunks. You should have about 4 cups. Don't add sugar yet!
2. Cover a cookie sheet with plastic wrap or waxed paper. Spread fruit evenly on cookie sheet. Cover with more plastic wrap or waxed paper. Freeze overnight.
3. Puree the fruit in either a food processor or blender. Add sugar and lemon juice, adjusting the sweetness to your taste. Blend until smooth scraping down the sides.
4. Spoon into serving dishes or a covered storage tub. Freeze until dessert time. Put in the fridge to soften slightly about 15 minutes before serving.

Suggested combination's:

1 mango plus 8-10 apricots

2 cups raspberries plus 2 cups apricots

4 cups plums

2 cups blueberries plus 2 cups plums

2 medium bananas plus 2 cups strawberries

2 medium bananas plus 2 cups peaches. Replace lemon with orange juice

2 medium bananas plus 2 cups pineapple. Replace lemon with coconut milk. You could also add a little coconut or vanilla extract.
