Makes 4 servings Prep time: 5 MIN
4 cups frozen strawberries (You can use fresh but they must be frozen first)
3 Tablespoons agave nectar or honey (add more for even sweeter taste)
1/2 cup plain yogurt (non-fat or full fat)
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Add the frozen strawberries, agave nectar (or local honey), yogurt and lemon juice to the bowl of a food processor or powerful blender. Process until creamy, about 5 minutes.
Serve the frozen yogurt immediately or transfer it to an airtight container and store it in the freezer for up to 1 month.
This sorbet is one of those wonderful recipes which tastes delicious and you’d never guess what’s in it. The beautiful green color comes, not from the lime, but from the spinach! This is a kid-friendly recipe and a great way to sneak some extra greens into your families diet. Also, this is dairy-free, so it’s a great frozen treat for people who are lactose intolerant.
1/2 cup Welch’s frozen grape juice concentrate (the one with the yellow lid and no added sugar), thawed
1/2 banana, peeled
1/2 cup fresh or frozen pineapple
1/2 to 1 cup fresh organic spinach leaves ( I use about 3/4 cup)
1 small slice of lime with the peel still on
1 mint leaf
3 cups ice
Put all ingredients into your Vitamix in the order listed.
Blend on high for 45 seconds to 1 minute, pressing down with tamper to blend well. When the machine sound changes and four mounds form, the sorbet is ready to serve. Serve immediately.
This recipe comes to you from my 11 year old nephew. This is one of his favorite late night snacks. He’s lactose intolerant so ice cream is out of the question. Anyone who has tried lactose free ice cream knows that it leaves a whole lot to be desired, literally! My nephew’s Mom has been coming up with recipes for him for years. This one is so easy he can make it himself!
- 2 fresh mangos, peeled and cubed. Frozen is better for sorbet. (when out of season buy organic frozen)
- 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks. Preferably frozen (when out of season buy organic frozen)
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon of agave sugar
Place all the ingredients into your Vitamix blender and crush until smooth. If you’re not using frozen fruit then blend fruit ingredients first and add ice until the sorbet is the desired consistency.
