Coconut sorbet

Coconut sorbet is a dessert that was once made in the family with uncles, aunts, cousins and cousins. Using a manual ice cream maker, everyone gave their strength to mill relentlessly and finally obtain a creamy frozen dough. It was only a pleasure afterwards to have obtained an ice cream with the help of all. Today, electric ice cream makers have often replaced manual ones, breaking with tradition. The fact remains that the best sorbets are those that you prepare yourself in an artisanal way than those found in the store.
