The Best Sorbet You'll Ever Eat!

Ok, so the title of this post is a bit opinionated, but seriously, I would be shocked if you didn't at least somewhat agree with me. This sorbet is THAT good! When I took the first bite, childhood memories of candy-like flavor and fruity notes of all sorts flooded my tastebuds... wow. A dream come true. It only has three ingredients, and all you will need to make it is a Vitamix blender (or food processor). No ice cream maker = no problem. :)

The one thing that makes this recipe a rather "all or nothing" recipe is the fact that the fruit I used to make the base is one that I NEVER see in stores or farmer's markets. It is a local fruit that some of you may know called a loquat. Loquats are almost pear-like in flavor, with a delightful tanginess lingering after each bite. Some are sweeter than others, but the ones I used were just the right amount of sweet and sour. If you live in Southern California, I have good news for you: It's loquat season! If you have ever wondered (while passing by a neighbor's house) what that magical looking tree with yellow fruits actually is, you most likely have spotted a loquat tree - though perhaps it may be a kumquat tree if the fruits resemble mini oranges. But if the leaves are almost tropical-looking, big and dark green, and the fruits are yellow and/or orange and hanging in clusters, then yes, you have discovered a loquat tree.


Sweet and Tangy Loquat & Apricot Sorbet

Serves 1-3

Ingredients:
* 1-2 cups frozen loquats
* 1 ripe apricot
* 2-3 medjool dates

Directions:
1) In your vitamix or food processor, combine loquats, apricot, and dates until smooth and creamy.
2) Spoon into pretty ice cream bowls and serve immediately. 
3) Gather more ingredients and repeat 1 & 2. ;)

I hope you enjoy the recipe. Though it's only three ingredients, it's a fun idea and perhaps quite exciting for those of you without an ice cream maker (like me). 

Peace love and loquats!

Much love,
