Easy Gourmet Sorbet Recipes
Gourmet sorbet recipes? Hard to believe that you can make them at home?
Believe me, it's much easier than you think. Sorbet is mostly a mixture of water, sugar, and fruit or other flavor. It's completely dairy free - a perfect treat for those who can't tolerate or are allergic to milk. It is also sometimes referred to as Italian ice.

I have a Vitamix blender that I use to puree my fruit if making fruit sorbets, It can also be used to make 30 sec. sorbets and ice creams.
I call it my
because I use it to sneak in vegetables for my family. (Although, it isn't much of a "secret" to them anymore because they are now accustomed to drinking green smoothies and are aware that they have leafy greens in them.)
What I like most about using my vitamix to make sorbets and ice cream, is that it can pulverize whole foods (including the seeds) making the ice cream very smooth.
The seeds contain nutrients that are not accessible to our bodies by just chewing. However, the vitamix breaks through the cell walls of the seeds and makes the nutrients available to us.
you are getting the benefit of the whole food and all the vitamins and fiber it has to offer. And, if you add a little bit of vegetables, how healthy is that?
The real reason I bought one was to make homemade smoothies for my daughter who is allergic to milk and various other foods.
We were spending a lot of money at smoothie shops and didn't have complete control over the ingredients.
One time, the order was confused and she was given a smoothie that had milk in it. Yes, it sometimes happens. We are all human. (We still buy them occasionally when we're traveling.)
