I had to give this beauty a post of its own. There are too many pictures of deliciousness to post.
It has been scorchingly hot here – upper 90’s for the past two days. And guess who doesn’t have air conditioning? THIS GIRL. My dogs and I have mostly been sitting in the living room with all four of our fans pointed at us and trying not to move. The pups have even been sleeping all day, which is highly unusual for my 100% energy all the time spazoids. I even took a cold shower in the middle of the afternoon to ward off heat stroke. The other thing that doesn’t help is when you’re on Whole30, live in a landlocked state and your little sister posts pictures like this one from her two-week beach vacation:
At around 2pm when my thermostat read, “92 – haha, stinks to be you,” I decided I needed ice cream. It would solve all my problems. If only I weren’t on Whole30 I would go out an buy a tub of mint chocolate chip and then bathe in it. I had the recipe for the banana ice cream but I wanted something more refreshing. That’s when I got in my car and high-tailed it to Costco. There, I bought some frozen berries and a giant box of oranges (and some more grapes because somehow I finished 4 lbs of them in less than a week?). I also let the bag of frozen berries sit on my lap on the way home because they were niiiiiiice and cold.
Anyway, here’s what I came up with:
Triple Berry Sorbet
– 3 cups frozen berries (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries were my combo)
– 1 cup frozen, sliced banana (this gives it a creamier, rather than icier texture)
– 2 tablespoons lime juice
– 1/4 cup light coconut milk
– 1/4 to 1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice (thanks, juicer!)
1. Put frozen fruit and bananas in food processor and process for about 20 seconds.
2. Slowly add your liquids until you get the consistency you desire. You definitely don’t want to process too much or else you’ll end up with a smoothie (unless you’d rather have a smoothie… in that case, go for it!)
3. EAT THAT SHIZ BEFORE IT MELTS, YO! (…or stick it in the freezer)
I figure making sorbet is pretty much like making a really thick smoothie. But sorbet just sounds so much fancier.
Also, I know the point of Whole30 is not to “paleo-fy” meals, but I think roasting in my own house merits a freakin’ sorbet.
