Summer Sorbet in a Blender

I was super excited to replace my broken food processor with a Ninja kitchen system. So, of course I had to use every piece of it this week to see how effective it really is.

I’m getting the hang of making ice cream bases. It’s still a little tricky, but I’m almost there…I think. I love making homemade ice cream, but the process is a bit lengthy. Freeze the churner, make the base on the stove, cool the base, refrigerate the base, churn the base, and freeze the base. PHEW. The next day, you can finally have some.

Sorbet is not only infinitely easier and less time consuming, but you don’t have to use a stove to make it. Fancy, right?

Peaches N Cream Sorbet (THM E)

  • 5 large fresh peaches, peeled and pitted
  • 1/2 c nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tsp Swerve or Gentle Sweet
  • 3-4 pinches pink salt
  • 2 Tsp vodka (optional, keeps the mixture from hardening too much)

Place all ingredients into a high powered blender and pulse until smooth.

Prepare pre-chilled ice cream churner, and churn according to directions. *The mixture will not be like soft serve. It gets a little icy, but overall only gets to a slushy texture.

Place in the freezer for at least 2 hours for it to set.

All of that beauty for only 5 minutes (or less?) worth of work. I can dig it.
