Fruit smoothie sorbet

  • Pin It

From time to time I get all excited about smoothies. I put together all this fantastic fruit, sometimes vegetables too, I blend it up, I pour it into a glass, and I stick a straw in it.

And then I remember that I just don't like smoothies all that much.

It's a consistency thing. I like my food to have texture. I like to chew.

So what's a girl to do with leftover smoothie? Well, if she's the girl who bought herself an ice cream maker for Mother's Day, she puts the leftover smoothie in the ice cream maker and turns it into sorbet. Yep - it works. No added sugar, no added water, nothing. Put your leftover smoothie in the ice cream maker and see what happens.

The batch above included cherries, apricots, strawberries, cucumber, lettuce and lime juice. Use whatever you like. The thicker your smoothie, the creamier your sorbet will turn out. If you add avocado or yogurt you might even get a texture closer to ice cream. Experiment!
