I've always wanted to be able to make healthy ice cream bars. It's a great activity that my god sisters (ages 8, 5, and 3) and I could do, because it's hard to get hurt, and the results are great.

Well, what happened was that I recently discovered an amazingly delicious smoothie recipe. I made about 3 times before I realized freezing it was a good idea. I froze it and it was terrific.
But I wasn't content, I took it up a notch and my next round I made a 3 layer, healthy, delicious sorbet bar.
It was fabulous, so I now HAVE to show you my recipe.

I hope you enjoy it and make tons!

The smoothie is probably the hardest part in the recipe and it's pretty darn easy to make. These smoothies are delicious plain, or even better with a large scoop of mango sorbet in them. YUM!

Step 1: In your blender add one banana and blend. This may seem odd but it makes the smoothie easier to make because if you added everything and blended it would be chunky, and too thick to blend.

Step 2: Add a cup and a half of grapefruit juice (or orange) and blend until it's almost or pretty much smooth.

Step 3: Smoothie Part 2:

You probably have a big glop of gloop now. Well, not to worry.

Step 3: Add a two cups of frozen (or fresh) strawberries into your smoothie. Blend until the strawberries only have small lumps left.

Step 4: Add a cup and a half of mango sorbet and blend until your smoothie is silky smooth.

Step 5: I love my smoothies super thick, so I also add about 1-2 cups of ice and blend. It just adds the perfect consistency. This is an optional, but lovely step.

Right on! I am currently making these frozen smoothie things, going to cut them into cubes. I created the recipe and the creation on my own ;) They consitst of.... 1. About 4cups of Orange Juice 2. About 2 1/2 cups of frozen thawed Pinapple chunks 3. 1 1/2 frozen thawed Peaches 4. 2 3/4 of frozen thawed Bananas 5. 2 teaspoons of Lemon Juice (so miniscule it probably did nothing) all blended together, I am freezing them now. I will soon have a picture to post before and after I cut them into cubes.

I love sorbet! It's an awesome food invention. I vote this 5 stars, because it is well documented, easy, and perfect for summer, let alone probably really tasty :D
Good blender choice! I can't wait to try this.

This is one of those things that when you see it all you can say is, "Why didn't I think of that?" Can't wait to play with different smoothie combinations this summer.
