Summer colors and fun ~ the art of Sorbet making!

Summer colors and fun ~ the art of Sorbet making!

A few weeks ago, in preparation for the summer weather, my girls and I went out and bought some luscious fruit of the season with which to make sorbets. We bought mangos, pineapples, strawberries, kiwis & coconuts and we have splashed and sploshed in the kitchen with enormous sorbet fun. The best part is, sorbet making is not only EASY, its a super healthy way to enjoy cold treats in the summer. Our kitchen was an aromatic blend of mangoes, pineapples and peaches… sooooo YUM!

A short note about Healthy Sweeteners

Muneeza AhmedOne of the things you’ll notice in the recipes below, is the addition of a little healthy sweetener when the fruit was a little tangy, e.g. with the pineapple and strawberries. We experimented with different sweeteners and I will share the results of the different ones with you below. I encourage you to try different sweeteners yourself, so you find one that really suits you  and your family’s needs. There are many to try, so you are not left wondering about choices and no, stevia is NOT the only one!

General Method

Usually you get the ingredients before the method, but I am explaining the method here, because its pretty much the same for all the ingredients below.

Blend all ingredients and freeze. You can blend all ingredients and put into an ice-cream maker, but that’s just going for fancy, although it does make the sorbet more ‘scoop-able’. We put the mango and peach sorbet in the ice-cream maker and the texture was incredible!

Course Dessert
Servings 4 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 2 large boxes of strawberries
  • 4 tbsp bee pollen
  • 2 limes (for juice)
  • 4 tbsp raw honey (with propolis & pollen)
servings

Instructions
 

  • Blend all ingredients and freeze or put into an ice-cream maker.

Notes

By adding in some bee pollen, we are making this food not just healthy, but super healthy since it now has a super bee food! The raw honey is also a super food, chock full of enzymes and B-vitamins. This upgrades your sorbet in a flash, without compromising any of the taste.

Peach Sorbet

Peach Sorbet (sugar-free)

Muneeza AhmedMuneeza Ahmed
Course Dessert
Servings 4 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 12 peaches
  • 2 limes (juice only)
  • 4 tbsp xylitol
  • 2 cups spring water (we used chaga tea)
servings

Instructions
 

  • Blend all ingredients and freeze or put into an ice-cream maker.

Notes

We used xylitol for this recipe, which made it completely sugar free. Xylitol comes from birch trees (same as super medicinal chaga mushroom) and tastes a lot like sugar but has none of the glycemic or caloric effects.

  1. Hi Muneeza, Thanks for the mouth-watering, Summer fun recipes! I can’t wait to try the pineapple coconut or maybe mango coconut!

  2. Hi Muneeza,
    read the recipes, unfortunately, don’t think i can get my hands on the sweetners and bee pollen here in karachi. any substitutes?

  3. pam strassburg

    thanks for these ideas Muneeza. I had some blueberries in the freezer I wanted to use up. I threw those berries, some maple syrup and strawberry flavored kombucha in the blender. just couldn’t decide if I wanted to make popsicles or sorbet in a tub. It was yummy.

  4. Stacy Longoria
