Procedure:

Combine all the above ingredients into a blender. Blend until silky smooth.
Pour the liquid fruit into a freeze-proof plastic container or an ice cream maker. Process according to the manufacturer’s instruction. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, follow the procedure below.

Place the container, covered with a lid or plastic wrap, in the freezer. After an hour, remove the container from the freezer, give an energetic whisk with a hand whisk and return to the freezer. Whisk again after 2 hours. When it’s nearly firm, about 1 hour later, give it one last good whisk. Freeze again until firm.

Tips:

Culinary Tip: If you don’t have an ice cream maker, make sure you whisk your fruit mixture very well. Whisking incorporates air. If you have whisked until your forearm hurts, whisk 10 times more.

Quick Tip: Use frozen fruit.

Variations: Some of our recipe testers poured the fruit mixture into little cups and placed a stick in the center. Once they were frozen, they had popsickles.

More Heart-Healthy Foods: Add some raspberries to your peach sorbet and strawberries to your blueberry sorbet.

Storage Tip: Store in an air tight container in your freezer for 3 weeks, if it lasts that long.

Think Ahead: When you have fruit that’s about to go bad, don’t throw it out. Put it in a zip top bag and freeze it for sorbet.
