Fabulous Fat-Free Fruit Sorbet

Fabulous Fat-Free Fruit Sorbet created by tomsawyer

This is such a wonderful summertime treat! I have used all kinds of fruit combinations in this; use your imagination. Far richer and intense in flavour than anything you can buy, and yet it's almost all just healthy fruit. The fruits that work best have a fairly smooth fleshy texture; things like mangoes, muskmelons, peaches, apricots, and bananas. But also good are strawberries, pineapple, blueberries and the like. Seedy or watery fruits can be used, but it is best to use them mixed with something that has a smoother denser texture, and to use less of them. Cook time is tempering time, but prep time does not include freezing time.

ingredients

directions

  • Prepare the fruit by peeling, if necessary, and cutting it into chunks.
  • Place on a plate or tray covered with plastic wrap.
  • Make sure everything is as spread out as possible.
  • Cover with more plastic wrap.
  • Freeze overnight.
  • Whiz the fruit through a food processor until very finely chopped.
  • Add the sugar and lemon juice, adjusting either according to the sweetness and acidity levels of the fruit you are working with; if you use pineapple use orange juice or water instead of lemon or lime juice and add a little vanilla extract if it seems appropriate.
  • Feel free to taste the mixture!
  • Blend thoroughly, until very smooth. Scrape down the sides of the food processor regularly.
  • This may take up to five minutes.
  • Spoon into serving dishes or a covered storage tub and return to the freezer until dessert time.
  • Put in the fridge to temper 15 minutes before serving.

    I used strawberries, bananas, orange juice and honey and it came out great! However, the frozen fruit massacred my cheapo food processor. Next time, I'll skip that step and use fresh fruit instead.
