I love a nice quickie, a little afternoon delight if you will. Summer’s approaching, whether it’s the weather outside or the temperature of the sheets, this sorbet recipe will cool you down in no time. Even more, this is an all-fruit recipe with no added sugars. It is definitely worth licking the spoon.
Prep time: 2 min
Make time: 7-10 min
Equipment: Food processor or juicer with blank, spoon/spatula, serving bowl
Yield: 2 cups
1 lb bag frozen mango (or any frozen fruit of your choice)
3-4 sprigs of mint
Juice of 1 key lime (optional)
Start your food processor. With motor running, add small (1/2 – 1 cup) handfuls of frozen fruit through the chute. Add a few mint leaves as the fruit turns to sorbet. Spoon the sorbet in small batches into serving bowl and place into the freezer in between processing to keep sorbet frozen. Continue process until all the fruit is processed with the mint leaves. To add zing, squeeze a little lime juice into each batch. If fruit is not sweet enough for your taste, you can sweeten each batch with your choice of stevia, honey or agave. Give all batches a final stir and serve with a sprig of mint for decoration.
Note: For those of you with a Greenstar Juicer, you can use the blank to push frozen fruit through. This makes a very smooth sorbet.
