Coconut Banana Sorbet

Some say summer is coming to a close, but I have to disagree. In the northeast September has the tendency to be quite summery, often with the best weather of the year. So, we have another month at least!

Ok. Maybe that’s me clinging to hope, but I don’t care. I’ll call it summer if I want to!

Anywho, this simple, healthy and delicious sorbet is bursting with tropical flavors. Eat it now, or all winter long and pretend you’re on a tropical beach. The best part – it is pretty dang good for you. No refined sugar, loads of nutrients, shockingly creamy, and all kinds of yummy. PLUS! You can totally add a splash (or five) or rum to liven things up a bit. Then, go ahead and call it “coco-nanner-cream” like I do. Don’t judge.

Coconut Banana Sorbet

Ingredients
3 very ripe bananas
One, 14 ounce can coconut milk (I used the low-fat kind, but I’m sure it would be even creamier with full-fat)
Stevia or other sweetener to taste (I used 3 packets)
Optional toppings: sliced banana, shredded coconut, white chocolate chips – go wild!

1.) In a food processor or blender combine all ingredients until totally smooth.

2.) Pour the mixture into the pre-frozen drum of your ice cream maker. Allow it to churn until frozen. The mixture will start to clump up on the paddle. Mine took about 15 minutes.

3.) Serve immediately or transfer to a freezer safe dish. Store in the freezer up to a couple weeks. Allow the sorbet to sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes to soften. Scoop away!

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.
