No Sugar Added Raspberry Peach Sorbet

So as you all know by now, we are on a low sugar kick in our household.  We are trying to stick with only natural sugars for the time being like the ones found in fruit.  If you have read any of my recent posts, you also probably know by now that I am a sugar addict!  I also happen to be pretty fond of ice cream.  Combine the sugar addiction, the ice cream obsession fondness and summertime and you have a recipe for a major ice cream craving!  I decided to stick with my low sugar meal plan though and make my own instead of buy some since most store bought ice creams have either tons of sugar or artificial sweeteners.

2 pints raspberries, frozen
1/4c milk of your choice, I used fat free but you could also use almond, coconut, soy, 1%, etc.
2 fresh, ripe peaches diced
Optional: Honey to taste.  I didn't use any, but this really depends on your taste buds

I started with 2 pints of frozen raspberries.  I purchased these before we went on vacation and froze them using a method I found on the Jewel grocery store website.  The method is quite simple and you don't end up with a pile of stuck together or mushy berries at the end.

I placed all the frozen berries in my blender because it was already out, but you could also use a food processor.  I chopped the berries using the "chop" setting and when they started to look like sand I slowly poured the milk through the opening in the top of the lid (I would not suggest removing the entire lid because you may end up with a big mess).  I continued to blend the mixture until it began to look like sorbet.  At that point I removed the lid and used a spatula to scrape the sorbet into a bowl and mixed in the diced peaches.

This recipe was absolutely delicious and definitely satisfied my ice cream craving and the sugar monster!  I will happily be making this again soon.

NOTE: I would suggest serving immediately as when I froze the leftovers to eat later it got really hard and was difficult to eat.

Happy Eating :)
