Mango Layer: Add mango & coconut water to the food processor and process until smooth. TIP: Place sorbet in freezer while you blend up the next layer to keep it frozen!

    My 12 year old has been making her sorbet’s that way since she became dairy intolerant!! DELICIOUS! Excited to try it ombre style!
    And I am SUPER excited to make the Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream for her since that is the #1 ice cream she misses!! Thanks girls for sharing such awesome recipes! My little Jasmine (and myself!) will be thrilled! :)

    Hey girls, any suggestion about what meal number this would be ok for? Or is it more so a treat once you’re focusing more on maintenance than slim down?

    1. Carlotta Barbieri says:

      Since both recipes contain fruit, I would say you might either have them with M2 or as M3 as the plan says that it’s better not to eat fruit after 3 p.m. (and I don’t think they have enough protein as a M1 if eaten alone); otherwise you could have them at any time as a treat, since it’s also ok to leave room for ‘wiggle’ once in a while, no? ;-)

    I made the sorbet tonight and it was delicious! Such pretty presentation too – I served it to dinner guests in little mason jars :) I had to add coconut water to the strawberry layer as well because my blender couldn’t handle just strawberries, but it turned out marvelously and I am sure this will be a constant summer staple!

  5. Angeli L Henkle says:

    So glad you put these fresh food ideas on.

    Question! I made the Mint, and the Kiwi was an overpowering flavor that didn’t seem to go with the mint… What can I substitute for that? And also I made the Sorbet which was AMAZING, but I want to make it for a party :) Can I make it the night before or would it freeze solid? and if it did freeze solid could I just let it sit on a counter for 5-10 minutes and would it be the right consistency?

    1. Kris K says:

      I agree that the kiwi is a bit overpowering and doesn’t mix well with the mint. I think I’m going to just use 1/2 a kiwi next time. I plan to use a bit more avocado too as I’m looking for a substitute for bananas (I’m allergic). Hopefully less kiwi will work next time, though it might not be quite the green color that I believe it’s there for.

    How could you make the sorbet into a daiquiri? Newbie :)
