3. Blueberry Sorbet
Let’s make a delicious blueberry sorbet by adding lemons and blueberries.
Lemon and blueberry are two of the most refreshing summer flavors, so why not combine them in a cool dessert?
With just three ingredients you can make your own homemade sorbet.
It’s easy to do if you have an ice cream maker but even without one, it’s still really good!
Blueberries contain many health benefits such as help with digestion because of their fiber content.
They also reduce inflammation which leads to less pain from arthritis or gout.
So go ahead and enjoy this healthy treat on those hot days where there isn’t much else going on outside besides lounging by the pool or sitting in front of fans trying to keep cool at home.
This is a quick and easy recipe for blueberry lemon sorbet that can be made at home.
You will need three cups of fresh, washed blueberries to get started on the ingredients list, as well as 1 Tablespoon of lemon zest which should go in before you add ¼ cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Next up are 4 Cups worth of ice cubes – half crushed so they’ll help your mixture stay colder longer while still being mixed into any remaining liquid from the other ingredient sources mentioned earlier- then finally all it takes is ½ cup water (or more if desired) to bring everything together!
- Wash the blueberries thoroughly.
- Add the ingredients into the blender jar and slowly increase the speed to the highest setting. This whole process will take roughly 60 seconds.
- You can either serve immediately for a delicious sorbet or store it in the freezer for two hours so that it becomes firmer as dessert time approaches.
Did you think that making lemon sorbet in Vitamix was difficult? No, it’s not at all.
Just follow the directions and get ready for some refreshing summer desserts this year with your Vitamix blender… 🙂
To make sorbet, you can replace blueberries with any fruit of your choice.
The rest of the ingredients are very similar: some water, a few cups of ice cubes (you might want to add more if it’s during summertime and/or in an area where there is not much humidity), zest from a lemon or orange peels depending on what kind you’re making as well as chunks/pieces for pieces like berries, melon balls, etc., and finally one chosen type of fruit.
The mixture should always be put into the freezer after preparation has been completed which will take about 2 hours before hardening so that when they come out their final product looks almost identical to store-bought sorbet.
