Are you craving an icy treat but hoping to avoid all the added sugar that’s found in traditional sorbet and ice cream? This recipe uses SweetLeaf® Sweet Drops® to create the perfect treat to eat on a warm spring day or after a meal! Psst – you can also use SweetLeaf® Stevia Sweetener as a substitute as well.
