Best of all, you don’t even need an ice cream maker! By pulsing slightly defrosted frozen strawberries in your Magic Bullet, you get the same slushy sorbet texture you would get if you used an ice cream maker, and the results are so much faster!  The splash of balsamic vinegar adds […]

Grapefruit Sorbet

I am always looking for healthy dessert alternatives and the other day I made this grapefruit sorbet with a little sugar and lemon juice. It is really easy to make and you don’t need an ice cream maker. You can skip the sugar of course, but, as you know, grapefruits are on the bitter side without adding the additional sugar. I like to top these with fresh mint leaves to introduce a new, refreshing flavor to this dessert. A fun […]

Blueberry Sorbet

Melon-Pineapple Granita

I’m going to be entirely honest with you: I’m an ice cream kind of girl. If I had a choice between sorbet and ice cream, I’d pick ice cream every single time. Popsicle vs. ice cream? Ice cream for the win. Cake vs. ice cream? Ice cream wins. Pie vs. ice cream? I’ll take both, thank you very much. But, you see, we are turning over a new leaf here in my tiny little kitchen. This is a leaf of […]

Strawberry Sorbet by Lizzie

Hey everyone! It’s only Wednesday, and already this week is totally topsy-turvy! For one, I (and many other New Yorkers) experienced my first EARTHQUAKE yesterday! It was really minor, but people were still freaking out. I thought I was going crazy for a second! I can’t imagine living somewhere like California where this sort of thing happens frequently. Anyway, if you’ll remember, this week I’m focusing on STRAWBERRIES, and today I want to provide you with a sweet, end-of-summer treat […]
