Strawberry Banana Sorbet
While great served straight from a bowl or cone on its own, this creamy combination can be stepped up a notch or two by adding dried strawberries into the freeze cycle, or by adding caramelized bananas to the dish just before serving.
INGREDIENTS | YIELD: 1 QUART
- 1 banana, peeled and chopped
- 2½ cups strawberries, hulled and chopped
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ cup water
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Purée all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender until very smooth.
Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.
Add to ice cream maker and follow manufacturer's instructions for freezing.
Nothing is simpler than caramelizing bananas, though few people think to do it! Simply peel your banana, halve it both lengthwise and widthwise, and lay the four segments on a baking sheet. Top with a healthy sprinkling of sugar, then place under your oven broiler or burn with a kitchen torch.
