What’s for breakfast? That’s always a big question. Too often it’s nothing or maybe some coffee. Don’t do it! Let’s answer that question very simply: fruit. That’s it. Fruit. That’s all you need to remember. Fruit is such a great way to start out your day. Full of vitamins, antioxidants and energy. And here are a couple of great sorbets to start out your day. Why not? Why not make breakfast as tasty and inviting as can be? Or, if you prefer, you can add a little liquid (distilled water and crushed ice are best) to make them into morning smoothies. Yum! This is a great way to get incredibly amazing and tasty treats that are about as healthy as you can get.
MANGO MAMBO SORBET
- 5 bananas
- 4-6 dates (preferably the choice Medjool variety)
- 2-3 mangoes
Slice the bananas into a mixing bowl or container, and do the same after cutting up the dates and mangoes into a dice. Pop the container into the freezer until they’re frozen. Obviously, doing these steps ahead of breakfast time — days before or even the night before — will make for a quick and easy morning meal.
Once frozen, put the fruit chunks into a good, strong blender and blend at medium speed for one to two minutes. You may need a little liquid to help get things moving, but don’t use much — just enough to incorporate the fruit. A little distilled water and maybe a little crushed ice would work best.
- 1 whole fresh pineapple
- 2 Navel oranges
- 1 kiwi fruit
- 1 pint of freshly squeezed orange juice
- 4-6 mint leaves for a garnish
Freeze 1 pint of freshly squeezed orange juice overnight. In the morning remove the peeling and the core from a whole pineapple and dice it up. Then peel and dice up 2 fresh navel oranges. Slice the kiwi. (You can also do the prep work for the pineapple, oranges and kiwi the night before, too, to make this quick in the morning.) Put the pineapple and the oranges into a blender with the frozen OJ. Blend until smooth (approx. 1-2 minutes)! Put into ice cream bowls and place the kiwi slices atop of the sorbet and garnish with the mint leaves! All I can say is that this is an awesome way to start the day.
You’ll have the best sorbets you’ve ever tasted, and it’s SO nutritious to boot. ENJOY it, you deserve the best and that’s what this is! I usually have this as a mid-morning snack. And by the way, ALL GOOD CALORIES! Don’t count them, just enjoy them.
