5 Minute Grape Sorbet
This 5 Minute Grape Sorbet comes together in just minutes and tastes like any other decadent sorbet. And the best part? You just need three ingredients!
Although I’ve studied nutrition for years and have a degree in it and all… I have an enormous sweet tooth. Try as I might, if there is cake in front of me, I’ll eat it. Nutella in the house, I’ll find it. So I have to find ways to satisfy that sweet tooth while staying true to my profession in which there’s little tolerance for the empty calories that come with sugar.
And that’s where fruit comes in, nature’s little nutrient sugar bombs. I’ve found that if I substitute a piece of fruit when I’m really craving a sweet snack, the cravings go away! So needless to say, my world flipped when I discovered frozen grapes.
Have you ever snacked on frozen grapes? They. Are. Amazing. Let them freeze solid, pull them out of the freezer, and let them warm up just enough that they get a thin layer of frost on their skin. I pop these things like they’re M&Ms on hot summer days!
A while back I discovered the beauty that is the Watermelon Granita, essentially just pureed and frozen watermelon, scraped into a shaved ice of sorts, and that got me wondering what other fruits might be awaiting some frozen summer inspiration. I was talking it over with the boyfriend-tulip-man, throwing out complicated ideas like “maybe I could puree the grapes, strain the skins, freeze it, then scrape it like a granita?” Being a guy strongly rooted in minimalism, he said “why don’t you just freeze them then puree them”…DUH! So simple! I gave it a go and instantly we had a grape sorbet success.
