For Your Tummy IV

Edited this post to accommodate a reader's request. Added the recipe at the bottom for you, Lolavie! Enjoy your sorbet! :)


My week-long craving for sorbet has finally stopped! 

I'm so thankful to be born and alive today when we have internet available to us almost everywhere. For without it, I would have not discovered a recipe for homemade sorbet. :)

Was hoping to make something like this:

 Google-d photo of raspberry sorbet

But raspberries are not grown here so I utilized what was readily available. Mandarin Oranges! :)

Mandarin Orange Sorbet
I would probably lessen the milk on my next try. This was a hit, nevertheless. :)

No better photo. :( It doesn't compare to the raspberry sorbet one above but I swear the orange color is livelier in person. And it's not only pulpy in pictures but also as it melts in your mouth. :)

Sorbet recipe found online (forgot where exactly):

This makes about 3 large servings. Add an extra frozen banana or cup of fruit for each additional serving.

~2 frozen bananas (peel ripe bananas and wrap with plastic wrap before freezing solid)
~2 cups frozen strawberries (or fruit of choice)
~non-dairy milk
~sweetener of choice (liquid sweeteners, such as rice syrup or agave nectar, dissolve best)

•Take the frozen bananas out of the freezer and break them into 3 or 4 pieces. 

•Place them and the strawberries into the food processor and allow them to sit for about 10 minutes, to thaw only slightly.

•Cover and start the food processor. (Don’t be surprised when the processor bucks like an angry bull when the blade hits that frozen fruit!) 

•With it running, add just a little bit of “milk” (you can also use water or juice here) to help the fruit blend smoothly. I recommend about 1/4 to 1/2 cup liquid for the amount of fruit used here.

•Stop the processor from time to time and scrape down the sides. Keep processing until the fruit is the smooth consistency of soft-serve ice cream. 

•Add sweetener to taste (I use a little bit of stevia) and process briefly one more time.

Serve immediately. Or you can put the whole processor into the freezer until you’re ready to eat and give it another blending right before serving. The sorbet can also be stored in a plastic container for up to a few days and re-processed to soften.

Enjoying summer with sorbet here! :)
