Notes

Notes:

*I suggest not reducing the syrup, it’s necessary for a non-icy scoop-able texture once it’s frozen overnight. If you do reduce the syrup, it’s best to serve this as soft-serve right from the blender.

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups frozen Montmorency tart cherries, partially thawed
  • 1/2 Cup maple syrup* (see note)
  • 1/4 Cup mint leaves
  • 1/4 Cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 Cup water
  • 1/8 Teaspoon salt

Directions

Place the tart cherries, maple syrup, lemon juice, mint, coconut milk, water and salt in a high speed blender.

Blend on low and gradually work up to high speed.

Blend until the fruit is very smooth and thick, like the texture of soft-serve (don’t overmix or your sorbet will start melting from the heat of the blender).

Serve as soft-serve immediately or pour into a freezer-safe container and freeze until firm, about 2-3 hours.
