Soo Yummy sorbet

Sorbet is a delicious frozen dessert that is generally made from a sweetener like sugar or honey and a fruit puree.  It also tends to be lower in fat than other desserts because it is vegan which means it contains no animal products to increase the fat content.  Sorbet is made in the same manner as ice cream in that the ingredients are slowly frozen while they are churned to produce a smooth uniform texture.  Any type or combination of fruit can be pureed and turned into a sorbet.  Depending on the region or preference it can be made with flavors like chocolate, coffee, nuts, and liqueur.  While ice cream has air whipped into it, sorbet has virtually none which gives it an increased density that results in a far greater flavor to taste bud ratio.  Sorbet can also be served as a low fat healthy alternative to ice cream.

You will need these ingredients:

¼ cup fruit juice
2 tbsp granulated sugar, or sweetener of your choice
2 tbsp corn syrup*
8 oz frozen fruit

 First Add the juice, sugar, corn syrup, and frozen fruit to Twister jar. Than blend using the Ice Cream cycle, or blend on a Low speed for 15 seconds, then blend on a Medium to Medium-High speed for 30 seconds, turning the twister lid counter-clockwise while blending.

Serve immediately for a soft version, or freeze for 2-3 hours for a scoop-able sorbet.If you like it frozen than for more than 4 hours, let sit at room temp for 15-20 minutes before scooping and serving.
