Recipe by NorthwestGal
I had this at a shopping mall recently, and it made my day because it was so delicious and refreshing. When I got home, I was happy to find the recipe in one of my Nordstrom's cookbooks, Entertaining At Home Cookbook. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. The intro states they tried various sorbets and discovered that it's important to use the Haagen Dazs brand of sorbet in order for the right flavor to be reached for this smoothie. Personally, I'm a frequent shopper of generic brands, but I will leave it up to others to use whatever brand they prefer.

We loved this! Honestly one of the best smoothies, great consistency. I did leave out the ice cubes. We used Talenti Roman Raspberry sorbet mix instead of Haagen Daaz. Usually I have to fight with the kids a bit to drink all of their smoothie but not today, they even asked for more.
- 1 1⁄4 cups apple juice
- 1 cup froze strawberry
- 1 cup frozen raspberries
- 1 cup raspberry sorbet (they recommend Haagen Dazs brand)
- 1⁄3 cup crushed ice cube
Directions See How It's Made
- In a blender with a powerful motor, first place the apple juice, followed by the frozen strawberries, and then the frozen raspberries. Next add the raspberry sorbet, and top with the ice.
- Cover the blender securely and blend on high speed for 35 seconds or longer (until a tornado-like vortex forms in the center). Let the vortex swirl 10-15 seconds longer (to allow the drink to smooth out).
- Pour into tall glasses and add sturdy straws. Serve immediately.
