Strawberry Banana Sherbet

5 Mar

I know it’s the middle of winter in the US… but it’s 83 degrees in Puerto Rico.  I am working without air conditioning for a few weeks now and I need something to cool off with when it gets hot.  So I decided to put together a few frozen things I already had in my freezer and see how they tasted all-together…

This is how Strawberry Banana Sherbet was born.  Nice little experiment, no?



1 cup strawberries
1 medium banana
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 to 1/3 cup fresh orange juice – nobody will notice if you use Tropicana, so don’t worry
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup of kefir – this will make it a sherbet, rather than a sorbet
  1.  Mix all the ingredients in a blender.
  2. Pour the mixture in a container to freeze up.  I used an ice tray… it’s convenient and helps in portion control too.  You could also use mini plastic cups or even place a wooden stick to serve as popsicles.
  3. Freeze for about 2-3 hours until it hardens up




I used fresh fruits I had frozen myself, but you can use fresh ones if you have them around or even frozen fruits bought from the supermarket.  I am sure you can use the same method to create other nice fruit sherbets.  I will be experimenting a few more in the coming weeks.  I promise to share.
