Amy's Raspberry SorbetAlthough it's winter now, it's the perfect time for a a taste of summer. Over the summer, my sister, Amy, made us a wonderful raspberry sorbet for dessert one evening. It's a healthy indulgence (my kind of oxymoron) you can whip up in no time. Amy used a blender, but you don't need a blender. All you need is a package of frozen raspberries, and a bit of soymilk. I took the berries out of the freezer to soften them a bit, then pureed them in a bowl with a spoon (because truthfully, our blenders are fit to be tied).
10 oz package of frozen raspberries
1/4 cup of soymilk
1 teaspoon of cacao nibs, optional
Mint leaves for garnish, optional
Mash softened frozen berries in a bowl. Mix in about 1/4 cup of soymilk, until the mixture is creamy. I used plain, unsweetened soymilk, but you can use whatever kind you prefer.
Stir in 1 teaspoon of cacao nibs, if desired. Spoon sorbet into ramekins and garnish with fresh mint, if desired. That's it! (Or put into freezer until ready to serve; partially thaw before serving.) This recipe makes about three servings. For more servings, simply use more berries and soymilk.
