Strawberry Sorbet loaded with Vitamin C, and every other fruit possibility! (only need a blender)

STRAWBERRY “SORBET” WITH CHOCOLATE CHIPS
from http://www.OrganicEater.com

I just whipped up a monstrous portion of Vitamin C filled organic strawberry “sorbet”, and I had to share it with you asap because it’s so stinkin easy you won’t believe it! Strawberries are a great source of Vitamin C, and this sorbet is filled with strawberries, so here ya go. Here’s the fastest, easiest sorbet you’ve ever made. Hope you have a good blender!

(I realize it looks like ketchup in the picture, but it’s not. promise.)

1 bag (12-16 oz) frozen organic strawberries. I’m gonna tell you that it DOES matter if you use organic here. Strawberries are one of the most pesticide covered fruits according to the Dirty Dozen list. But if you can’t find/afford them, it’s still healthier than eating processed sorbet that used non organic strawberries at the factory! So, go for it. (no guilt here, remember)

1 cup almond milk (may need a little more, test as you go). Almond milk is a fantastic source of calcium! You should be able to substitute other milks, but unsweetened vanilla almond milk gives it a great flavor with no added sugar, so it depends on “where you’re at” on the good/better/best scale. YOU decide. If you’re into it, go to www.WholeNewMom.com to look for her – almond milk recipe.

Sweetener equal to  2 TBS pure maple syrup (grade B is the healthier one actually) or honey (we use local raw honey for health benefits). Liquid stevia or raw organic agave could be used as well. If anyone tries using an apple for the sweetener, let me know. Red or yellow, not green.

Blend until smooth. Eat immediately! Melts fast. It will have the consistency of a milkshake, but we still used spoons to eat it. We topped it with chocolate chips since it’s a weekend treat, but they weren’t necessary.  If you need to make this “to go”, like a smoothie, just add more milk, then pour it in a to-go cup with a straw.

Earlier this week I made pineapple sorbet and also banana sorbet, just like this, and they were both amazing. I was originally  inspired by a peach sorbet recipe that I saw on “The Chew” earlier this week, and now I’m trying all the fruits I can think of! This is an amazingly healthy, easy, fun, and delicious treat that we will be making all summer, usually without the chocolate chips:)

If you try this or another variation, let me know how it turns out! I can’t wait to hear about some of these creations. The possibilities are endless!

update 9/14/12: Dr. Axe had this Raspberry Sorbet recipe this week, and it uses water instead, but you’ll need to freeze it after blending:

  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/3 cup raw honey or stevia
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tbsp. lemon juice
    1. Directions blend together and freeze for a couple hours (you may need to stir every 30 min to keep from freezing into a solid block of ice)

      Encouraging Health,

  1. Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Appreciate it

    • WordPress had been pretty “easy” and self explanatory. I had NEVER created a blog before this one, and I think it turned out OK. Nothing fancy, but it works. 🙂 There is an amazing blog by Amy Lynn Andrews who tells you everything you need to know about blogging on WordPress. invaluable!
