    fresh fruit sorbet

    equipment: blender/vitamix

    10-15 frozen berries (fresh, ripe)
    2 frozen mangoes
    ¼ cup fresh squeezed orange juice
    5-6 fresh basil

    1. place the fruit in the freezer until completely frozen.
    2. put frozen fruit in blender or vitamix with ¼ cup of oj.
    3. blend slowly. it's done when the mixture has a smooth, creamy texture.
    4. add basil last and give it a whirl

    the result is light and creamy.

    raw, delicious, healthy

    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    The ones I make have spinich, avacado, chicken, rice noodles, and a rolled up fried egg roll wrapper in the middle for extra crunch....they are soooo good!


    mmhmm, Ive never thought to use basil in a smoothy...thanks for the idea .

    I made your potato salad recipe last night Sparrow, it was lovely!

    I had never put blue cheese dressing in before, but you're right, it's a great complement to the recipe. Added a nice flavour; even the hubs liked it, and he really dislikes blue cheese.

    Thank you for sharing that.

    My favourite is water. You'll need a glass and a water source. Add frozen water for a special treat.
