Blueberry-Coconut Sorbet

July 20, 2014


Author Notes: It's the height of blueberry season - and NJ Blueberries are here! I wanted to create a non-dairy delicious frozen dessert that would let the blueberries play front and center. Ann Goldman

Makes: 5-6 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 can 13.5 oz coconut milk (low fat is ok)
  • 8 ounces coconut water
  • 2 pints blueberries (divided into 1.5 pints and .5 pint)
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tablespoons vodka (optional)

Directions

  1. Work with chilled coconut milk, coconut water and blueberries
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, process 1.5 pints blueberries, coconut water, sugar and vanilla
  3. Pour into a bowl and mix in the coconut milk and remaining blueberries. Add the vodka. Mix with a spoon. The mix is ready to process.
  4. Cover and chill the mixture if you are not planning to process (it will hold well for up to a day in the fridge), otherwise, pour into the bowl of an ice cream maker and process according to manufacturer's instructions.
  5. Store in the freezer in a covered bowl. The sorbet will remain "scoopable" with the addition of the vodka. If you skip the vodka, allow it to sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before serving.
