Sometimes in the summer heat you just want a cold sweet treat.
And I love ice cream, I enjoy making it, but sometimes it is more work than I’m wanting to do.
I really am a pretty simple girl. And sometimes ice cream is too sweet for me. In my everyday life, I don’t eat baked goods. Weird, I know, since I’m a baker. But typically the only time I eat baked goods is when I have to sample the ones I make, to make sure they’re up to par. And sometimes I don’t do that, I have a gorgeous, super-honest husband be my taste-tester because he will let me know what’s up.
So one day, I make to make a little treat for the two of us. I see some strawberries left in the fridge, that someone from the market had given us. And I know what I want. When I go to the store I grab a view bananas.
All I did was blend them. But to a surprising delight, that was all I needed to do. Fruit is sweet to me and I didn’t even sweeten this. It was perfect. It had a next texture. It wasn’t rich. It was light and refreshing.
Plus it was so easy. Something I can respect.
The great thing too, is that you can try it with other fruit. But if you have the perfect strawberry and ripe bananas, you are really set!
Strawberry & Banana Sorbet
- 1 pint of fresh strawberries
- 2 bananas
- 1 tsp lemon juice
Let’s Make it Happen:
Process all the ingredients. Scrape into a glass bowl. Freeze for several hours or overnight.
From here you can eat and enjoy, we did. Let it set out for 5 minutes, so it is scoopable. I also like, sometimes, to run it back through my processor so it is creamier.
That’s it for this Monday and start of the week. Basic + but good.
