Guava Sorbet with Lime

Even though it's been freezing cold here (actually, below freezing!) after the spicy chicken, I needed something to cool my mouth down. I found this simple recipe for guava sorbet in the African cookbook, and it sounded great!
I love guava juice, it has a flavor unlike any other, it's really bright and almost creamy. I love how the nectar has bits of guava still in it. I found cans of guava juice on the Mexican foods aisle in the grocery store. I hope you enjoy the last of my African cooking!

Guava Sorbet with Lime

1 ½ c. guava nectar
½ c. simple syrup
1 tbsp. lime juice
Lime slices for garnish

1. In a large bowl, mix nectar, 1 c. water, syrup and lime juice.
2. Chill mixture for 30 minutes, then pour into an ice cream maker.
3. Churn for 20 minutes, or until set.
4. Place back in the freezer until serving.

This looks great and I always carry the Goya & Jumex brand nectars. They're awesome for mixed drinks!
