Fast Fruit Sorbet
Frozen Berries... strawberries, mango, mixed berries
2 cups Vanilla or Plain Silk Soy Milk or Plain Silk Creamer
1 cup organic white sugar (1/2 cup less if using the flavored Silk Soy Milks)
Cuisinart Food Processor
Silicone Large Spatula
Pulse the Frozen Berries
For instant frozen sorbet, I use my Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup Food Processor with the knife blade inserted.
Dessert for a dinner party of 6, I fill the bowl full with frozen berries... pulse till the berries are pulverized. This will make an awful sound, but the blade will pulverize the frozen berries into fine chunks.
BUY Cuisinart Food Processors at Amazon.com
Add one cup of sugar and pulse again until the sugar is distributed.
Add Trader Joe's Soy Creamer
With the Cuisinart running, begin to add the creamer slowly until the fruit and sugar are the consistency of thick stirred ice cream. You may want to use more or less soy creamer... so add a little at a time till you get the consistency that you like.
Silk Soy Creamer is good too and the vanilla flavor is excellent in this recipe.
Taste to see if the mixture is sweet enough and serve.
If frozen ahead of time, you'll have to let it stand for at least a half hour to be able to spoon out the frozen mixture.

"MMMMM.... More Please!"
Did you ever make ice cream with one of these old crank type contraptions? We use to make homemade ice cream every weekend at our mountain resort cabin in Julian, California. My mother, Christine Stanley, used eggs, white sugar, whole milk, canned milk, half & half and vanilla extract to create the best vanilla ice cream! Seasonal berries or fruits were added as the summer months went by... strawberries, raspberries and fresh peaches were often added for that special taste treat.
Mom's with the Lord now and being the vegan I am, I've automated the making of ice cream and modified the recipes. Not to worry, you can still have ice cream creations, but without the dairy products and cream.
Vegan Coffee Ice Cream
3 cups of strongly brewed Kona Joe "Trellis Reserve" Coffee (refrigerate till ice cold)
3 cups Silk Soy Milk or Silk Creamer
(pick plain or one of the flavored versions: Vanilla, Hazelnut, Plain... just remember that the flavored versions have sugar in them.)
sugar to taste: 1/2 to 1 cup organic sugar
Cuisinart Automatic Frozen Ice Cream Makers
French Press or Espresso Maker for Coffee Brewing
Brew one French Press of Kona Joe Coffee Trellis Reserve Coffee or pull three espressos.
Decant the coffee, cover and refrigerate until cold.
In a bowl, combine the creamer or milk with the cold coffee and taste... add sugar if needed and stir until combined.
Assemble the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker with frozen freezer bowl, aerator and lid and begin adding the sweet coffee mixture.
Run the machine for approximately 20 to 30 minutes and you will have soft serve coffee ice cream. If you put mixture into a plastic container and freeze for another 30 minutes, it will become more solidified.
Scoop this delightful coffee ice cream into a bowl or serve along side my Deliriously Decadent Double Chocolate Torte and enjoy!
