Banana Blueberry Sorbet

May 13, 2011
We have so many bananas on hand… always!  Steve goes to the Baseball field everyday and comes back with at about 3 bananas everyday.  Good thing I eat at least 1 a day!  Still… I am not a human banana-eating machine.  So, I am constantly thinking that I have to do something with all these bananas lying around.  And what do I always do when I have extra ingredients on hand…. Bake with them!
I didn’t exactly “bake” with them because I made a sorbet.  So technically I froze them 🙂.   I combined the bananas with some fresh blueberries I had on hand (added some sugar and water) and then threw them in my ice cream maker.  And that’s it!  Only 4 ingredients and I created a refreshing and tasty dessert!
Another reason why I love ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet… it is soooo easy to make!  Throw some ingredients in the food processor to make it smooth, then into the ice cream machine and your done! And this recipe is a great example of this.
Enjoy this easy and delightful sorbet!

This recipe is meant to be made with an ice cream machine.  However, if you don’t have one you can still make this sorbet, but it will take time and some elbow grease.  Visit here to view steps on how to make ice cream without an ice cream maker.
