Fruit Sorbet - The Fermented Foody

Fruit Sorbet

It’s almost the week-end.  And another glorious week of weather behind us in the London area!

LESSON-WITH-TA

 

Today, I’d like to share a simple raw dessert idea that I learned in Thailand during my first visit in 2009.

Relaxing outside a jungle house, my first ‘raw food lesson’ took place at a vast wooden table, protected from jungle rain (which we didn’t see!) by a beautiful, hand crafted bamboo roof.

To be honest, it couldn’t have been more magical.

I returned to home soil with fresh eyes and a host of ideas on how to change the way I ate.

This is a fun way to eat a raw snack, with a drizzle of coconut/date or rice syrup and perhaps something toasty sprinkled over the top.

 

Gather Your Goodies

BANANA-SORBET-

 

Bananas/ Mangoes/ Pineapple/ or Raspberries

or … any fruit you love that you’d like to use to make a sorbet!

It’s Action Time!

  • Chop your chosen fruit into small chunks and place it in a zip lock bag in the freezer.
  • Leave until frozen.
  • Pop fruit in a high speed blender and use your tamper tool to quickly create a lovely fruit sorbet
  • Remember to add some nuts or seeds for a good protein. This will slow down the absorption of sugars and help with digestion.

Enjoy!

MANGO! Definitely – what a great and simple idea! Why haven’t I ever thought of this? I’ve made fro-yo with fat free yogurt and berries blended first and then frozen. But your way, you don’t have the added sugar/sweetener from the yogurt and I bet the flavour is fab! Will def be trying this soon! Thank you x

    My pleasure! This is just so quick and refreshing Nicole. It’s particularly wonderful in hot weather. And yes, no need to sweeten, although a little topping is rather fun. That’s in my blog post today! This is one of my fave super speedy desserts. x

    I couldn’t live without my juicer. I use it to juice and to mince my sweets. It’s one my kitchen babies Adriana! Indispensable.

    They’re simple toppings, but overlooked by many Jessica. 🙂 … Scheduled for Monday! Have a great week-end.
