This tangy kiwi sorbet recipe is a wonderful healthy dessert that's so easy to make!
If you like fruity desserts, you've got to try this kiwi recipe. It's not often that we enjoy kiwi in recipes - it's usually just chopped up and added to fruit salads or used to top a yogurt bowl.
Kiwi has a unique strong flavor for a fruit, it's tart and tangy like citrus but has some undernotes of sweetness similar to strawberry. Making it a perfect bold flavor for a simple sorbet.
Why You'll Love this Kiwi Recipe
Not only is this sorbet so easy to make but it has a huge amount of flavor. If you love sweet and sour combinations, then this is the recipe for you.
All you have to do is freeze the kiwi till it's almost ice hard and then blend it with a sweetener and some fresh mint to enjoy a seriously refreshing treat!
It takes some time for the kiwi to freeze, but you can prep it in advance and make a batch whenever you'd like.
Ingredients You'll Need
Kiwi - You'll need 5 kiwis for this recipe. You want to use very ripe kiwi for this recipe. It should be soft when you press the flesh. You'll need to remove the hairy skin from the kiwi and chop it into chunks before freezing it.
Sweetener - You'll need ¼ cup of sweetener of your choice - I used honey. You can use honey, maple syrup, agave, etc.
Mint - You'll need 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh mint (about 10 mint leaves).
How to Make this Recipe
Prepare the Kiwi - Peel the kiwi and cut it into ½ inch chunks. Place it in a freezer-safe bag or container.
Freeze - Freeze the kiwi for at least 3 hours, longer if possible.
Blend - Blend the frozen kiwi, sweetener, and mint leaves for at least 2 minutes in a food processor until you achieve a smooth consistency. Scrape down the sides occasionally if necessary.
Serve - Scoop the kiwi sorbet into a bowl and garnish with some mint leaves. Serve immediately or save in the freezer for up to 3 months.
