Toasted Coconut Sorbet Recipe @ChefChrisCater

Whenever I smell the sweet scent of coconut I instantly envision myself on a beach somewhere relaxing with a drink in hand and not a care in the world. Pretty great that I can do that to myself with just the scent of something when in reality I’m really in a messy kitchen running around trying to make lunch for the kiddos! Hah! Well, today, Chef Chris Brugler is sharing with us a recipe for Toasted Coconut Sorbet which was recently featured on The Hallmark Channel.
