Mixed Berry Sorbet

Serves 6

Total Time:

Patients often tell me they can restrain themselves throughout a meal, only to go overboard with dessert. I understand how hard it can be to turn down a slice of freshly baked pie topped with a scoop of ice cream. But this berry sorbet is an equally delicious way to end a meal. And with a mere 42 calories – compared to the more than 500 calories in a slice of pie and ice cream – I’d recommend going with the sorbet.


  • 1 12 oz. bag frozen mixed berries
  • 1 ripe banana
  • ½ cup unsweetened apple juice
  • ¼ cup vanilla almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons real vanilla extract


  1. Thaw frozen berries in the bag. After thawing, place berries, banana, juice, almond milk, and vanilla extract in a blender and liquefy.
  2. Strain the liquefied berries through a strainer or sieve to take out the seeds. Put the strained juice into a freezer-safe container, and then cover with waxed paper so that the paper is touching the surface of the juice.
  3. Place the pan in the freezer for an hour or so to firm. If it becomes too hard, let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes to soften.
