Each year on Valentine’s Day, our family has a special meal.  Everything is either heart-shaped or pink.  It is definitely something to look forward to during the dreariness of winter.  This strawberry banana sorbet has its roots in a recipe I found a long time ago in Taste of Home.  The original recipe was for a molded gelatin dessert and involved strawberry gelatin and applesauce.

The recipe has since evolved into a yummy strawberry banana sorbet that I freeze in heart-shaped silicone cupcake liners.  Using a silicone mold makes it so easy to unmold the sorbet after it is frozen.

This is one dessert you can feel good about serving to your family.  The banana adds enough sweetness that no additional sugar is needed.
