My cousin posted a link to an one-ingredient ice cream on thekitchn.com that shows you how to make "ice cream" from just blended, frozen bananas! Well, I am not a huge fan of banana taste, but the link got me thinking of how I could maybe make "sorbet" with other types of fruits using the same method. Well, I just so happened to have frozen strawberries and peaches in my freezer, so I tried it out and guess what? SUCCESS! Cool and refreshing treat without a whole lot of work - just my kind of dessert! :)
This recipe is only soy-free if you use all soy-free ingredients, and is fish, milk, nut, wheat and egg-free as well! Enjoy playing around with it! :) I know I will!
One Ingredient Sorbet
Frozen fruit cut into bite-sized pieces such as
peaches, strawberries, blueberries, bananas, apples, raspberries, melon, cherries, kiwi, mango, grapes
1. Place frozen fruit into your blender (1/2 Cup at a time works best).
2. Blend the fruit on the "Blend" setting (you may need to use "Ice Crush" at first before it will blend well for you), and blend until it is to the smoothness of your choice. You will probably have to scrape down the sides from time to time as well to get even blending.
3. Transfer "sorbet" to a bowl and enjoy!
That's it! Easy peasy! You can use more than one fruit if you wish, just try not to work with more than 1/2 Cup total fruit at a time. You can even have fun adding other ingredients that are soft and would blend well such as peanut butter (this would take away the nut-free status of the recipe), honey, chopped mint or cocoa powder (you might have to add some sugar with that, though). I have not tried citrus fruits or pineapple yet, but those may work as well. The possibilities are endless! :)
Note: If you want to freeze your own fruit to use rather than use a store bought bag of fruit (like say you want to use up that left-over fruit salad), simply put the fruit on a single layer onto a cookie sheet or plate and stick it in the freezer for 1 to 2 hours until frozen.
