Last Friday I was wandering around Costco, looking for healthy foods and munching on the free samples. I came across this lady who gave me something green and frozen to try from a small paper cup. It looked like a frozen dessert or a slushy with a high peak. As soon as I licked the top, I was instantly in heaven and began watching her demonstrations.
Apparently, the lady was promoting this blender that they were selling at the store and doing the demonstrations of the delicious foods you can make in it. I didn't care for other foods much but this Lemon-Lime Sorbet that she just gave me, really hooked me and got me standing there and watching her making it. It was SO delicious! Seriously! The perfect combination of sweet and tart. If you close your eyes you may imagine that you're on the beach and having this delicious lemon-lime sorbet cocktail 🙂
I decided to bring this deliciousness home to repeat for my kids because I knew they would love it too. Another brilliant point is that it only has 4 simple ingredients that probably EVERYONE has in their kitchen right now and it takes less than 5 minutes to make! Nailing it!
The lady at Costco was super nice. Although she was doing a great job promoting her blender, she told me how easy it was to make with 4 simple ingredients. She also insisted that no other blender can do the job, but when I came home I tried the recipe in my my basic blender, and they came out just great.
The key is - that your blender must be able to crush and blend the ice and the spinach leaves (only used for natural green coloring) into this kind of this smooth consistency. If you turn your blender upside down, the inside consistency should not fall out. That's it! She nailed it!
Ingredients for Lemon Lime Sorbet:
½ Peeled lime
⅓ Cup of Blue Agave (which is 5 tablespoons)
About 10 Spinach leaves for color
Note about Agave: It is very sweet so in the beginning you can add 2-3 tablespoons. But it is low glycemic syrup that is slowly absorbed by the body preventing spikes in blood sugar.
About 4-6 Cups of ice
Directions: Then turn your blender on and crush it and blend it or whatever setting you use for your frozen dessert. Like I mentioned above, the key is - that your blender must be able to crush and blend the ice and the spinach leaves into this kind of this smooth consistency. If you turn your blender upside down, the inside consistency should not fall out. See photo above and also enjoy this video I made.
Serve into paper cups and start enjoying right away. Beware of the brain freeze though! So lick slowly!
