Super Fruity Sorbet (recipe)


Iron Craft's feeling Hot, Hot, Hot! this week. The challenge was to do something with heat - either representing heat or something to beat the heat. Well, it's plenty hot around here, so I decided to beat the heat with my super fruity sorbet. There's no ice cream machine needed for this one.

 Super Fruity Sorbet
 (makes approx. 7 cups - 14 servings - 77 calories per serving)

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cups frozen cherries
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  1. In a small pan, make a simple syrup by combining the sugar and water and heating it until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Slice the bananas and toss them into a blender with the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Pour the simple syrup into the blender.
  4. Pulse or blend on low until smooth.
  5. Pour mixture into a freezer safe container.
  6. Freeze for two or three hours. Mix the semi-frozen sorbet with a fork. Freeze overnight.
  7. Nom, nom, nom.

This is a very sweet sorbet, so feel free to cut back on the sugar. To make the simple syrup, just make sure that your water to sugar ratio is equal.

Straight out of the freezer.

In a sundae glass. (This is about three servings.)

In a sundae glass with super yummy toppings.

Single serving size...with whipped topping. Yum!

Enjoy! I know I am.
