The daiquiris that I am used to having are more creamy in texture rather than icy. Therefore, I wanted this sorbet to be creamy too. But how exactly do I do that without turning the sorbet into an ice cream
Coconut milk is dairy-free but has the fat and consistency needed to give this sorbet the creamy texture that I crave. Plus, the coconut flavor gives the sorbet a tropical feel that is PERFECT for this summer treat.
Yes, please! As kids we always called this combo (strawberry + coconut) Tigers Blood because of some crazy good snowcones we found in these flavors. I think this dessert look spectacular and creamy and I love that it comes together so quickly before popping it in the freezer.
To toast coconut, preheat your oven to 350F and spread a 1/2 cup of sweetened shredded coconut onto a baking sheet. Pop in the oven and toast for 10 minutes, until the edges are getting brown. Mix the coconut lightly and toast for another 5 to 10 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from the oven and set aside.
In a large pot, combine the almond coconut milk, coconut cream, sugar, toasted coconut, and salt. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, and let it gently simmer for at least 15 minutes (to infuse the toasted coconut flavor). Strain the mixture, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge overnight.
Empty out the can of coconut milk into a medium sized pot over high heat. Bring the coconut milk to a boil and turn down to medium heat, to a rough simmer. Reduce the coconut milk for about 45 minutes (stirring every now and then to prevent boil over), until it looks like a loose syrup and is about a 1/2 cup in quantity. Take off the heat, add the agave nectar and vanilla extract, and stir to combine. Cool completely. Store in a lidded container in the fridge for up to a week.
This recipe costs $2.98 to make, or $.50 per cup serving. Making sorbet with sugar instead of maple syrup would bring the price down a bit, but this real food version is still a great bargain.
You will love this easy recipe for Mango Coconut Sorbet! This sorbet is a refreshing summertime treat that is smooth, light and full of mango flavor. Quick and simple to make because all you need is a blender or food processor to mix the ingredients and then freeze it in your ice cream/sorbet maker.
In case you are wondering why I added arrowroot powder in this recipe, it is because the arrowroot helps prevent ice crystals from forming and keeps the sorbet from turning hard as a rock in the freezer.
Also, the kind of mango that you use to make this recipe will affect the flavor of the sorbet. I used fresh rapoza mango because they are my favorite and it is season here in Hawaii, but you can use any kind you like, even frozen mangos. ENJOY!
The Mango Sorbet is amazing as-is, but adding the coconut cream on top gives it a delicious creamsicle flavor. If serving adults you may want to add a bit of pizzazz to this child-hood treat by adding some coconut rum. Yum!
Though my short-lived tropical daydreams were years ago, fragments of my imagined adventure pop up whenever I encounter sandy beaches and ocean waves. Landlocked as I am, my curiosity towards coconuts became a way to bring those daydream adventures to light. Eventually, that curiosity turned into a love for the multi-purpose fruit.
Nowadays I like to imagine myself on a sunny, crowded beach, eating coconut sorbet beneath a large umbrella, and watching children play in the tide. I find there is far less stress when modern conveniences are involved.
Coconut Sorbet is a refreshing, cool treat to enjoy whenever the mood strikes. Coconut milk is sweetened with pure maple syrup and vanilla bean before whirling in an ice cream maker. Small pieces of shredded coconut are added to give a chewy texture to the smooth sorbet. While the sorbet can have the tendency to be icy straight from the freezer, if you leave it out for 10 minutes before scooping, the sorbet transforms into a creamy texture. 781b155fdc
