What's the perfect blend of fresh, icy-cold and sweet? A delicious summer berry sorbet!
Whether it serves as the perfect sweet-tooth cure or as a quick and easy tropical dessert for you and your friends, sorbet can be used in a multitude of ways! A delectable, scrumptious alternative to ice cream, sorbet contains no dairy or eggs, so it’s suitable for anyone with dietary restrictions. Making sorbet is similar to making ice cream, but even easier, and your choice of ingredients is limitless depending on what berries you use! So, how will you cool down this summer?
- 4 cups of fresh or frozen berries: sliced strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, or blackberries (you can also add other popular fruits like bananas, mangos, or pineapple for a more diversified flavor)
- 1/2 cup yogurt, creme fraiche or silken tofu
- Put the fruit and yogurt in a food processor container along with a couple of tablespoons of water.
- Process until just pureed and creamy, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. If the fruit does not break down completely, add a little more water through the feed tube, a tablespoon or two at a time, being careful not to over-process or the sorbet will liquefy.
- Serve immediately or freeze it for later. If serving later, allow 10 to 15 minutes for sorbet to soften at room temperature.
