The temperatures are rising and we are soon longing for light and delicious refreshments. A low-calorie sorbet is the perfect solution for your cravings for sweet and ice-cool pleasure
The best part? Sorbets are super easy to make, even without ice cream machine. We are happy to show you, how exactly that works!
If you used to give sorbet the cold shoulder, you should really overthink your behavior. Classic sorbet is all but boring and a healthy alternative to ice cream made with dairy.
Sorbet is based on fruit, fruit juice and sometimes even savory vegetables. It thrives without animal-derived ingredients and is therefore perfectly suited for vegans.
The preparation is quick and simple. Once you’ve got the hang of it, you can create new sorbet variations whenever you feel like it!
Blend the fruit with a little fruit juice, add a sweetener, preferably agave syrup or coconut blossom sugar and freeze everything in a container. If you’re in a hurry, you can even rely on frozen fruit.
Our tip: Light sorbet also makes for a great breakfast - just think of the famous banana ice-cream. Sorbet is a great dessert or snack in-between meals.
The sugar prevents the sorbet from freezing completely. But of course, you should always rely on the healthy sweeteners mentioned above and skip industrial sugar.
You’re probably curious to learn what awesome recipes we came up with!
