It’s cold dessert season! I’ve loved “nice cream” for years (made in a similar way to the recipe below, but with bananas!) but when one of my girlfriends mentioned she was making a healthy frozen fruit sorbet type dessert in her food processor, I had to start experimenting on my own. I love that this recipe is so quick and easy and that it doesn’t require any fancy ice cream making gadgets. While other frozen fruits may work, I really love using berries for this no sugar added sorbet recipe. Berries are lower in sugar compared to other fruit, contain tons of antioxidants and also have lots of fiber. The Greek yogurt in this recipe helps create a smooth and creamy consistency, plus the protein in it is always a welcome addition! If you are dairy free, you could try using dairy free yogurt options!
Time: 5 Minutes
2 Cups Frozen Berries (any kind will work, or a mix!)
1/3 Cup Greek Yogurt (I use plain but you can use any kind you like!)
2-4 Tbsp Water
Squeeze of Lemon Juice (this is optional but very highly suggested)
1. Add the 2 cups of berries, 1/3 cup of greek yogurt, 2 tbsp of water and squeeze of lemon juice to a food processor.
2. Process on high for 2-3 minutes, stopping to scrape sides down. The consistency may be a little bit crumbly which will resolve after it is processed a little longer and you may also want to add 1 – 2 tbsp more of water!
3. Process until the berries are broken down and the consistency is like a sorbet or ice cream.
4. Divide into bowls and serve immediately.
