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?
STRAWBERRY BANANA SHERBET
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
Mix all the ingredients in a blender.
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.
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.
