Refreshingly Easy Non-Dairy Organic Fruit Sorbet

Since I've been on a mostly liquid/mushy diet the last two weeks I have been craving flavorful foods! Plus, who doesn't love icecream? Here is a recipe that I made up for a way to make non-dairy, organic fruit sorbet that you can eat by the cupful without feeling guilty!!

Ingredients needed:
10 ounces-2 cups of your choice of fruit. I chose raspberry for this batch. The fruit can be fresh or frozen.
3 cups organic coconut milk (the kind from the box, not the canned kind)
1/4 cup raw, organic honey (I have also used organic sugar)
1/4 tsp xanthan gum (this can be omitted, it just keep more air in the sorbet mixture so that it has a softer and fluffier texture. If you don't have any lying around your house, it isn't a huge problem to leave it out)
Pinch of salt

Put the fruit, honey and xanthan gum (if using) into a Food Processor

Blend until the fruit is broken down and the honey and xanthan gum are thoroughly  mixed in. Frozen fruit will take a bit longer than fresh/ canned fruit
*I made this with home canned peaches. It was amazing!!

Add in the 3 cups of coconut milk and a pinch of salt. Blend together until mixed. 

Pour into your Frozen Yogurt Maker

Then let it sit for 10-20 minutes depending on the consistency you prefer to eat it at. 
Using frozen fruit and pre-chilled coconut milk will help it set-up much quicker. 

Then when it is done, enjoy right away!

This recipe yields about 5 cups. It also freezes great if you don't eat it all in one sitting. Simply spoon it into a freezer safe, non BPA container and put in the freezer. When you are ready to enjoy it again, let it sit out on the counter for 5-10 minutes to soften a bit. That will give it a softer texture as it tends to be fairly crumbling coming straight out of the freezer.
