Cherry Orange & Creamy Peach Sorbet to Cool Ya

Summer's in full swing, and we've found a delicious way to keep cool! It's simple, nutritious, and you don't even need an ice-cream maker.


Cherry Orange Sorbet

2 c fresh/frozen cherries
2 c orange juice
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice




Put everything into a food processor and puree.












Transfer to a pitcher, and p
our the mixture into 2 ice-cube trays and freeze it until firm.

When you're ready to serve the sorbet, transfer the fruit cubes to a food processor. Pulse them, in short bursts, to make smooth sorbet.

Serve & eat immediately.





Here are the ingredients for another batch of sorbet.

Creamy Peach Sorbet

1 c coconut milk
1 large banana
3 peaches (I used some I canned last year)





This yielded a creamy, tropical flavor that my family loved.

Next time you make a smoothie, pour some of it into ice-cube trays to blend later into a frozen treat. The possibilities are endless, and I have a baggie in the freezer loaded with various frozen fruit ice cubes ready to be made into sorbet.




And because it's vegan, you'll also be cooling the planet. Does it surprise you that dairy cows are responsible for 25% of Idaho's carbon footprint? Dairy production produces loads of methane gas, which is 20 times more effective as CO2 at trapping heat in the atmosphere. Read this article to learn more about the vegan/global warming connection.
Hey, this dish is so chill that you might need toe socks to warm up your flip flops!

That ice cream bowl and spoon bring back sooo many memories of young childhood. I got one of those from an edible candy arrangement after I had my tonsils out when I was 5. We had to get rid of the bowl, because 10 years later it cracked and it was growing some interesting specimens within the hollow shell. But I was soooo sad when it had to leave. haha

This is a great method for making sorbet! It sounds kind of like a smoothie, as long as the ingredients you put in are good it will work out.

Sam said...

I love sorbet! I'm going to have to try the cherry/orange... yum!

JJW said...

Delicious smoothie! I did not know that fact about cows, yet another reason that everyone should go vegan...I always make the argument that eating dairy is not in sync with evolution...ha!

The perfect summer treat! And I love those socks... it's definitely important for people to start making the connection between global warming and their diet.

Thanks for the comment on my blog Vicki. For the cheeze sauce you can use more milk and thahini if you like it is about taste but be sure to heat it and let it curd and add a little salt if you like..
I will try your sorbet today but with strawberries
Yes surprisingly we have loads of strawberries in Barbados lol
imported of course but there is a sale at my workplace for 100 pounds for 25 usd so I will make use of that and try some stuff using strawberries
