As much as we love ice cream, it isn’t always the healthiest treat (especially if you have a dairy allergy). This sugar-free sorbet combines the idea of ice cream with summer fruit into one creamy, healthy treat. All you need is the fruit, and honey, and a food processor to create this delicious dessert! Peaches, melon, raspberries, nectarines, or strawberries would be great fruits to make into a sorbet that will take you back to summer no matter the season.
When we think of summer, we think of ice cream, fresh fruit, and hot sunny days.
Berries and stone fruits are part of the Dirty Dozen fruits and vegetables that can be laden with pesticides, so buy them organically whenever possible. Growing your own
You may ask yourself, “What is sorbet?” Sorbet is typically flavored water with added coloring and sugars. Sorbets that you buy at the store are made with artificial flavors, colors, and lots of processed sugars. Sorbet is also a good vegan option because it doesn’t contain dairy or eggs like most ice creams or sherbets.
How to Make Sugar-Free Sorbet
Step One: Gather Ingredients
You’ll need frozen berries, melons, apples, pears Waxing Kara Honey and some mint sprigs for garnish
Step Two: Mix
In a food processor, pulse fruit and honey together until smooth.
