Strawberry Sorbet

After you make this strawberry sorbet, I promise you will never have to buy frozen strawberry sorbet again. It was that good. The original recipe, found on the blog, MyWholeDeal.com, is shown below. Know, however, that I made a few modifications, mostly because, again, I didn't have all the ingredients. Here are my changes: In addition to strawberries (I didn't have a full 2 cups so I needed other fruit) I added some frozen cherries. I almost added some frozen fresh pineapple but I figured I had enough fruits. I'll try the pineapple another time. I used soy milk and orange juice (fresh squeeze that I froze in ice cube tray) and agave. And I completely forgot the vanilla extract. I started by using the food processor. Not a good idea. Switched everything to my Vita Mix. Much better.

Trust me. You will not regret it.


INGREDIENTS:

- 2 cups strawberries, frozen
- 1/4-1/2 cup almond milk, or your favourite non-dairy milk
- 1-2 tbs  orange juice concentrate OR agave nectar, see notes
- 1 tsp  vanilla extract

METHOD:

1. Put everything in your food processor or blender and process until silky smooth and sorbet-y, adding a teeny bit more almond milk if necessary. Garnish with sliced fresh strawberries, chiffonaded mint leaves  or mini vegan chocolate chips, if you’re feelin’ fancy.
