Fruitty Sorbet

March 18, 2015

Sorbet, not only good but good for you!!!!

This is a very simple recipe but because there are no added sugars, artificial ingredients and unneeded fats.  It is also really good for you.  I was watching a presentation (again) of the NutriBullet when I came across a storm in my head.  Sorbet for dessert and how can I make it healthy too.  The strange and yet interesting ingredient in this recipe is broccoli florets.  Yes, broccoli.  But when this dish is completed, there is no sign or taste of the broccoli.  Furthermore, you do not need to add the cinnamon.  There are a lot of people that cannot stand the taste, smell or thought of cinnamon.
You can use fresh fruit but you will need to freeze the fruit and veggies the night before or very early in the morning if you are going to serve this after dinner and if you want the sorbet consistency. I prefer the use of frozen fruits and veggies. You will need a high speed mixer and I am using my Ninja which is great for making counter top frozen desserts.  If you do not have a Ninja, maybe a NultriBullet or a high power food processor might give you the results.

Ingredients

1 banana

1 cup of frozen fruit, chopped (I used a berries mix)

1 cup coconut milk, or coconut water

1 cup of frozen broccoli florets

1 cup of ice cubes

1 heaping teaspoon of cinnamon (optional)

Place all of the ingredients into the blender and blend until the mixture has a thick and frozen sorbet texture. This is not a dessert that sits well.  Once the blending is completed serve immediately.  If there are leftovers, toss into the freezer and the next day you can make another dessert or turn this into fruit smoothies by adding additional coconut water and fresh fruits.  The banana will add smoothness to the sorbet but not too smooth and as mentioned earlier the broccoli is undetectable.  Just another serving of needed veggies.
