We are on the downhill slide right into summer and what better way to enjoy it than with cool treats like this cherry berry sorbet recipe? The warm weather, baseball games, outdoor porch sitting, and grilling will certainly be more exciting!
The fresh fruits of the season are going to start coming in hot, and pairing them with Health-Ade’s newest, summer inspired berry flavor is going to be amazing. Imagine doing some porch sitting with a small bowl of cherry berry sorbet. It is going to be the stuff summer dreams are made of for sure.
Health-Ade Kombucha’s latest Cherry Berry flavor is gorgeous in color, rich in flavor, and totally summer swoon worthy. A mix of cherry, elderberry, and hibiscus, this bright and bubbly kombucha is going to be a staple in your summer sipping regime.
For this recipe, I added even more berries to the mix like blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries. I also included sweet dark cherries to create a berry base for this sorbet. I cooked it all together and let it cool overnight. Then, right before putting it in my ice cream maker, I added in the kombucha. This way, it would retain its raw properties and keep the cultures and probiotics alive and well. It’s a perfect palate cleanser after your summer grilling, so better check out this new, exclusive flavor at your nearest Whole Foods!
Health-Ade Cherry-Berry Kombucha Sorbet
Preparation Time – 10 Minutes + 1 day to chill the fruit base
Cooking Time – 22 Minutes
Freezing Time – 4 Hours or overnight
2 pounds fresh or frozen fruit – 1-pound dark sweet cherries, 1-pound mixed berries
¾ cup Sugar
¼ cup Corn Syrup*
1 cup Cherry-Berry Health-Ade Kombucha
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1. An ice cream maker is required for this recipe - freeze the base bowl at least 24 hours in advance.
2. If using fresh fruit, wash and dry the fruit, cutting away any stems and pits.
3. If using frozen fruit, use it straight out of the bag.
In a large saucepan, bring the fruit, sugar, and corn syrup to a boil. Stir frequently until the fruit breaks down and is completely soft, the sugar is melted, and the corn syrup is incorporated. This takes about 10 minutes.
Remove the fruit mixture from the stove. Place the mixture into a blender or food processor, and liquify the fruit completely. Pour the fruit base through a fine mesh strainer into a large bowl. This way, there will be no leftover seeds and skins of the fruit. Cover the bowl with the fruit mixture and allow the mixture to chill overnight.
Remove the fruit base from the fridge, and pour in 1 cup of Health-Ade Cherry Berry Kombucha prior to making the sorbet. Stir until it is completely mixed.
To make the sorbet, place the frozen ice cream maker base into the ice cream maker. Prepare the ice cream per the manufacturer’s instructions. It will take about 18-22 minutes of churning. Spoon the completed sorbet into a loaf pan or other container then seal it. Freeze for at least 4 hours to completely solidify. Serve with fresh cherries and berries on top if desired.
*Note: Corn syrup is used in this cherry berry sorbet recipe to create a smoother sorbet, reducing the formation of hard ice crystals. If you do not wish to use corn syrup, you can remove it, and increase the sugar level to 1 cup, instead of ¾ cup.
