A refreshing, dairy-free coconut lime sorbet that will impress

Feel like a refreshing dessert, with a hint of tartness, creamy (but no dairy) and so yummy?  Look no further my friends – this coconut lime sorbet fits all of those criteria.

I made this recipe at a recent cooking class (can I just say that I love Sur La Table cooking classes! – look at their website here for why I’m so inspired after each of the classes!).  This recipe was during a Thai cooking class, where I was inspired for the spicy cucumber salad (recipe here).  And obviously I had to add a few touches of my own, to make this recipe truly mine.  But it’s not too far from the original.  

The brown color comes from using coconut sugar, but it works just as well if you use the regular granulated sugar (and it is more white!).  Try it.  Love it.  And let me know what you think!
