Acai has a slightly bitter berry taste, but once sweetened, it becomes deliciously fruity in taste with almost a hint of chocolate (or nutty flavour)… It is known as one of the super-foods for its antioxidant properties. Acai Sorbet makes a perfect summer treat – ‘healthy’ and ‘refreshing’ is on the menu this summer.
*You will need an ice cream maker for this recipe. If you do not have one, see instructions below.
4 packs of acai purée (3.5oz packs), room temp.
2/3 cup maple syrup
1 Tblsp lemon juice (1 lemon squeezed)
1 Tblsp berry fruit juice of choice (I used raspberry)
- Combine all ingredients together and mix until combined. Pour into an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for sorbet.
- If you do not have an ice cream maker, pour the liquid into a flat pan and put in the freezer. Stir every hour. When the liquid becomes slushy, pour the liquid into a food processor (or use hand-mixer), and blend the liquid until light. Place into a container and store in the freezer until frozen.
