Basil and Mint Sorbet

Submitted by: LILWASPUD

Introduction

This is a traditional Italian anitpasti dish (something to be served before the main course), although it is sweet enough to be a pleasant treat after dinner as well. You could lower the calories and carb count by using more Splenda and less sugar, although I'm not sure how the syrup would turn out.
