Easy Tropical Sherbet

Summertime means cool and creamy, so today I'm giving you a super easy go-to dessert that will wow your company.  It only has three ingredients.  Yes, THREE!  And you don't need an ice cream maker, blender, mixer, or sauce pan.  Here's a picture:
This shows it topped with blueberries, but that's optional.  Another great thing about this "sorbet"-style dessert is that you can use any fruit juice you want-- mango, grape, cranberry, pomegranate, lemonade.  My favorite happens to be Dole's Pineapple-Orange-Banana blend.  

Here's what you need:
2 Cups any fruit juice (but trust me, that Dole blend is the best for this)
1 Cup sugar
2 Cups whipping cream (not whipped)

In a bowl, stir the juice and sugar until the sugar dissolves, then stir in the cream.  Pour into a 9x5-inch loaf pan, or a square 9-inch pan.  Freeze exactly 4 hours before you're ready to serve it.  This way it will be almost firm.  If you wait too long it will be too hard, so time it right. 
I haven't won any awards with this one, but I've definitely received rave reviews!  (Looks great in a goblet, by the way)
