Kiwi Lime Sherbet Recipe

Written by Becky

It’s been two weeks now since our little stint in the hospital.  We’ve had many welcomed sunny days since then. Sunny enough even to dust off the ice cream maker for this Kiwi Lime Sherbet, a twist on the familiar refreshing Spring treat.

Everett has been quickly recovering from his bout with pneumonia, returning to his two year old state of elated energy paired with constant testing of boundaries. Our  days have been filled with picnics, swinging, train riding, and chalking all accessible sidewalks around our home.  His high spirits along with God’s good grace and comfort, have been what has kept me strong after some news we were brought last week.

Our sunny days have been met with some dark ones unfortunately. As I mentioned in a previous blog, during his time in the hospital doctors found a mass in our little guy’s liver.  After meeting with a specialist last week, we discovered that the best action for his health would be to remove this mass as soon as Everett is fully recovered from the pneumonia.  This means a surgery, time in the ICU, and another long recovery, all due in April. Though we’re beyond grateful to this miracle of finding this mass, that doesn’t eliminate the sadness and heartache that we have all felt finding out about the need for surgery on our little boy.

Until April we’ll be holding onto our sunny days, eating Spring treats like this Kiwi Lime Sherbet and more from the list below and taking time to find strength in the Lord. Clinging to His words…

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.   -2 Corinthians 12:9

May these sunny days be ones where you find strength too, and lots of delicious food!

  1. I’m so sorry about Everett being in the hospital and the surgery looming — I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers, Becky! I know it’s hard seeing your child down but luckily kids are so resilient. 🙂
    Key lime is one of my favorite things, and this sherbet looks so creamy and refreshing! I’m definitely pinning this to try!

    • Thanks so much Marcie, for your care and thoughts. That’s good to remember – the resilience of kids. I will definitely remember that next month.

  2. I was thinking about making a kiwi sorbet for this month. But I don’t have an ice cream maker so passed on that idea. I am so happy you posted this recipe—I love, love, love that it is made with coconut milk. This looks so good I am going to attempt making it the freeze and stir way. I think it will work with the coconut fat! Yum.
    Becky–my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. <3

  3. So many things to hold on to as we look to the future for sweet Everett. Good times, sweet memories, and good food. All of these lead to a bright future ahead. God is faithful and full of mercy! With a mom that cooks like you, it won’t take anytime for Everett to recover from his next stay in the hospital!
