Got a kindle????

I just found out that you can get the e-book version of Lick It! Creamy Dreamy Vegan Ice Creams Your Mouth Will Love for the Amazon Kindle. It costs $9.99 -- of course, they sell the print version for 10.17 so it's not much cheaper but you do get it instantly and of course there is no charge for shipping. Either way . . . now that the weather is warming up, it's time to start thinking ice cream.

Since it's strawberry season here in CA . . . I'll share this yummy recipe for Strawberry Sorbet.

Strawberry Sorbet
Makes 1 generous quart
This sorbet just bursts with sweet strawberry flavor. Best of all, it’s quick and easy to make.

5 cups halved strawberries
1/2 cup agave syrup
Juice of 1/2 lemon

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. If the mixture is cold, it may be frozen immediately; otherwise, chill it in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Then freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s directions.

Strawberry Daiquiri Sorbet: Replace the lemon juice with the juice of 1 whole lime and add 2 tablespoons of light rum. Serve it soft, like a slushy, or harden the sorbet in the freezer for a few hours.

Ahhh, my husband just got me Lick It for Mothers Day and we have been going crazy with trying out the recipes. We love, love, love this book!! I made Strawberry, Vanilla and Chocolate Chai for my daughters 3rd birthday party and they were a HIT with everyone and the parents loved that it wasn't loaded with sugar!! Thank you again for writing this book!

Happy Mother's Day and thanks so much for your kind words. I'm so glad you are liking the book. In a month or so when raspberries are in season, I highly recommend you try the Chocolate Raspberry (it's my favorite). Though the Chocolate Chai is pretty close.

Also -- feel free to post your lovely words on if you have a chance. Though I see you have a little one so I know you are busy :)
