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!
Step 1: Ingredients:
- Mango Sorbet
- Grapefruit Juice (or orange if you insist)
- Frozen (or fresh Strawberries)
- Blender (unless you want to mush it with a fork xD )
- Plastic Bags
- Baking Pan (the flexible plastic/rubber ones are best)
Step 2: Smoothies Part 1:
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:
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.
Step 4: Layer #1: Tropical Smoothie
Step 1: Pour your smoothie into a pan (preferably one of the bendy pans, that makes getting the sorbet bars out of the pans a breeze.
Step 2: Gently shake: gently shake the pan from side to side to make the smoothie even.
Step 3: Put the pan in the freezer for 3-4 hours or until firm and your ready for layer 2.
Step 5: Layer #2: Mango Sorbet
(the pictures are pictures of my 3rd idea, so your will look a bit different)
Step 1: Take a nice plentiful bowl of mango sorbet and pop it into the microwave until it is a liquid. Put it in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, remembering to stir.
Step 2: Pour you liquid over your smoothie and pop it back into the freezer for about 2-3 hours.
Step 6: Layer #3: Grapefruit Juice/Juice
Step 1: Remove your sorbet bars from the freezer and pour a layer of grapefruit juice over the pan.
Step 2: Pop it back into the freezer for 4 hours to overnight.
Some people are keen to the bitterness of grapefruit, instead you can substitute will a juice of your choice.
Step 7: Packaging Your Bar
Step 1: Take a sharp knife and wash it in hot water.
Step 2: While the knife is still hot cut up your giant bar into pieces.
Step 3: Package your bars in plastic bags and freeze at least 2-3 hour. (overnight is preferred)
Step 8: Enjoy Your Healthy Treats!
Enjoy! And keep on making those sorbet bars!
Good night everyone! :D And again, enjoy!
