Yum. That’s all I gotta say about this incredible creation. Now I am on the west coast at the moment where the produce at the Farmers Market is in full gorgeousness so please forgive me if you are reading this and do not have these fruits at your local market…BUT if you are lucky enough to have them, do yourself a favor and get your ass to the Farmers Market and buy some organic Strawberries and Guavas straight from your trusted organic farmer. If you can’t find guavas where you live and you wanna try another tropical fruit, substitute mango or fresh young coconut meat for the guavas. And if you wanna keep it easy peasy, you can always just make a straight up strawberry sorbet! Either way, you and your guests will thank me. Period. These combinations are sooooooooooo easy and delicious. You may wanna jump back and kiss yaself!
For the Sorbet:
3 boxes of fresh Strawberries, washed and stemmed
1 box of fresh Guavas, washed and peeled
pinch of Sea Salt
2/3 cup agave
1 TB Vodka (yes I said Vodka — it helps with the freezing and the texture!)
1 TB real Vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsweetend soymilk or organic cream (non-vegan)
Juice of half a meyer lemon (you can use a regular lemon if you can’t find the meyer)
Instructions: Put everything in a high speed blender. Blend for about a minute. Strain the mixture through a fine strainer into a pitcher. Discard the little seeds in the strainer. Put pitcher into refrigerator and chill at least a few hours or overnight.
Make sure to put the glass container you will be using to put the Sorbet in, in the freezer. Pour the chilled mixture into your Ice Cream maker, turn it on and let it do it’s thang. Check it from time to time. It will be done in about 20 minutes. When it’s done, take out the chilled glass container from the freezer and transfer the sorbet. Cover and freeze for a few hours.
