Strawberry-Banana Sorbet

I’ve been whipping up frozen desserts ever since I got my first Cuisinart food processor 22 years ago. Back then, the instructions in the owner’s manual were to put frozen strawberries and a whole bunch of sugar into the processor and trickle in milk or cream as the processor worked. These days, I skip the sugar, add frozen bananas for creaminess and sweetness, and use just a little soymilk to get the right consistency. The result is absolutely delicious, even on an unseasonably cold evening in May.

I try to keep several different types of frozen fruit on-hand to make sorbets and smoothies. Frozen peaches and mangoes make wonderful sorbets and can be found in most supermarkets. Another favorite of mine is the “smoothie blend” combination of frozen fruit that includes mango, pineapple, and strawberries. You can also freeze canned pineapple and make an incredible sorbet using it alone or with bananas. It’s so much fun to think of new combinations of this healthy and easy dessert.

I don't have a food processor. Would this work with a blender?

Briana, I haven't tried it in a regular blender, but it does work in a Vita-mix. I would start off with the soymilk in the blender and put the fruit on top.

Have you ever tried this recipe in a ice cream maker (such as a Cuisinart)?
