Banana Sorbet

How to Make Banana Sorbet in Three Easy Steps

Our story begins harmlessly¬†enough. Girl googles “sugar addiction” and eventually falls down a rabbit hole of diabetes, sugar substitutes, and cocaine. Seriously, isn’t it insane that ‘sugar-is-more-addictive-than-cocaine’ is the internet’s dominant analogy to describe people’s relationship with the white (sweet) stuff?

I thought I would be writing a hopeful report about trying something new and living a healthier lifestyle as a result. I thought I would find a viable stand-in for ice cream, my biggest vice. I thought I would take bananas, blend them up with some chopped fruit, and replace a terrible habit with “banana ice cream” that OMG TASTES JUST LIKE THE REAL THING.

I was wrong.

So instead, I will lay out the (very easy) steps to making banana sorbet. I will warn you now: this does NOT taste like ice cream. Don’t trust any website or recipe that tries to tell you that. It’s all lies. Just accept it for what it is: a banana-flavored frozen dish.

Have I mentioned this tastes like bananas? B-A-N-A-N-A-S.


Banana Sorbet Instructions:

Step 1

For a batch that will serve about 2-3 people, first cut up 5 bananas into small slices and put them into the freezer for at least 3 hours or overnight.

Step 2

When sufficiently frozen, put the bananas, a few splashes of almond milk, and some honey if you’re so inclined, in the blender of your choice. No need for additional sugar. The next step is the good part: throw in chopped (and frozen) strawberries or spoonfuls of chocolate hazelnut spread for different (light) flavors.

Note: Because of the honey and skim milk in the chocolate spread, this isn’t vegan. Live a little! (Or you know… use a substitute.)

Step 3

Finally, blend them together and drink as a smoothie, or return the container to the freezer to stiffen up into something more solid. Voila. You’ve just made your own batch of strawberry or chocolate banana ice cream¬†sorbet.

What do you think? Will you be making the switch from ice cream to sorbet?
