One of my favourite things in life is ice-cream, but I recently had a baby and discovered the hard way (ie baby crying all night) that she cant tolerate dairy products, so ice-cream is off my list. Lucky one of my other favourite things is sorbet. Unfortunatly my baby has been diagnosed with several food al ergies, so I am now trying to make most things myself, including sorbet. Since I live in the tropics frozen desserts are on my list of must have quite regularly, but I'm having trouble getting a nice consistancy after I have frozen it in my home freezer. It always goes rock hard in 24 hrs and gets very icy. I have tried several different recipes, but have not had much success. I've also tried the take it out of the freezer a few mins before hand, but this doesnt help the icy situation. Can anyone help a tired and hungry Mum??
