Fresh Blueberry Lavender Sorbet

Blueberry Lavender Sorbet

5 cups frozen blueberries
juice of 1 lemon
zest of 1 lemon
1 tbsp water
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp fresh lavender or 1/2 tsp lavender extract

In a small sauce pan add water and sugar and bring to a boil. Boil for about 2 minutes to make a simple syrup, allow to cool. In a blender or food processor add blueberries, lemon juice, zest and lavender. Blend mixture gradually adding simple syrup and continue blending until smooth. Serve immediately or put in another container to freeze for later serving.

**For a more lavender-y flavor adjust amount of extract or dried flowers to your liking. Mine has a very faint hint but enough to give it a beautiful floral flavor.
