Making Sorbet with a Juicer
by Chris Herbert, Director of Sales
Want delicious, vegan, guilt-free sorbet without having to go out or fuss with an ice cream maker? Try your single-gear, masticating juicer or blender! With your juicer’s blank plate or homogenizing function, you can combine fruit like bananas, strawberries, and mango and immediately enjoy a no-sugar-added, soft serve ice cream that is loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients!
Fit your masticating juicer with its blank plate or select the homogenizing function. Place your ice cream bowl under the juicer spout and turn on the machine. Adding a couple of pieces at a time, slowly feed through frozen fruit. Watch with amazement as the vibrant soft serve comes out! When finished, enjoy your treat as is, or get decadent with your favorite toppings like chopped nuts, granola, or honey!
Don’t have the right juicer or part? If you have a Vitamix or comparable high-powered blender, you can achieve the same effect by using the tamper while blending on high for 10-30 seconds.
Word to the wise: small batches turn out better when using the Vitamix, so don’t load it up to the top!
Here are some particularly tasty combinations:
- Banana and berries
- Strawberries and mango
- Peaches, raspberries, and coconut
- Banana, strawberry, and chocolate sauce
- Just plain Mango!
- Coconut and strawberry
- Blueberries, cherries, and coconut
