Need a great dessert in a hurry? These wonderful delights can each be whipped up in about 5 minutes if you have the ingredients.
Easy, Quick Frozen Fruit Sorbet
- 1 package frozen berries
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2/3 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Toss all the ingredients into a blender or processor. Process only until it is smooth and the pieces of fruit are broken up. It won’t take long so keep an eye on it.
- It is ready to eat! Enjoy it straight from the processor or freeze it to enjoy later. It will keep for 5-7 days in an airtight container.
Don’t have the heavy cream on hand for this recipe? Try this fat-free way:
Frozen Fruit Delight
- 1 package frozen berries in either a sugar syrup solution (strawberries are my favorite) or with 1/2 cup sugar added
- optional: 1 tsp. vanilla flavoring or a dash of pineapple fruit juice
- Process until smooth in blender or processor. It makes a creamy smooth dessert that has 0% fat and is very luscious. This semi-sorbet recipe works so well you’ll want to use it often.
- Garnish with a fresh sprig of mint if you have it.
These two desserts can always be relied upon to give you a quick, easy option for entertaining family or guests. The hardest part of these recipes is keeping the family from eating the frozen berries you are trying to keep on hand!
