A guilt free, sugar free berry sherbet recipe for those days you are craving sweets!
- 4 cups frozen blueberries, raspberries & marionberries*
- 1/2 cup water
- 2/3 cup gluten-free non fat Greek yogurt - I use FAGE Greek yogurt
- 10 packs PureVia stevia blend - found at Costco
- In a medium sauce pan add 4 cups frozen; boil; low heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
- Strain liquid and fruit into a bowl, through large fine strainer, pushing through the meat of the fruit. This can take about 20 minutes or more. Squash the berries as best as possible.
- Place in refrigerator to cool.
- Once the fruit sauce reaches room temperature add in stevia; stir.
- Add mixture to food processor or mixer; add yogurt; and blend well.
- Return to freezer until fully chilled. You can place in the freezer instead, if you wish to speed this process up.
- Add to ice cream machine and freeze until it ices up to the consistency you desire or according to manufacturer's instructions for sorbet. If you do not own an ice cream machine ignore this step.
- Freeze in an airtight container and place in the freezer. It's best to store in individual serving containers so that you do not have to defrost the entire container for each serving.
*I used the frozen/fresh berry mix from Costco -100% berries.
Add extra non-fat Greek yogurt, enough to give you the desired creaminess. I only had 3/4 cup on hand, but next time I plan on using about 1-1/4 cups. Use low-fat or full fat Greek yogurt for a richer, more ice cream taste, if you don't mind increasing the fat, calories, and carbohydrate content.
I photographed the sherbet prior to freezing. It will become much harder than this after freezing. Once frozen leave out for about 15 or minutes to defrost a bit.
Add additional stevia if you have a sweet tooth.
