2 Ingredient Sorbet Results
I made the orange juice (our own oranges) and banana sorbet and I thought it turned out great. Like a Granita it was crystalline in texture (think more solid slushy) and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
FYI - I tried posting a picture on Facebook but for some reason I can't post pictures there.
Anyway, I used our Deni Ice Cream maker. If using one of these make sure your liquid is well chilled before hand so the combination of the frozen base and the chilled liquid gives you the best results.
[Second picture below: The banana pieces were mashed and mixed in during the churning process.]
I may try this with some milk, cream or half and half to create a sherbet with a more ice cream consistency. With this combination of fruit and milk I think I will get something closer to an Orange Creamsicle (one of my favorite treats from the Good Humor Man trucks when I was a kid). Oh and maybe I can create a version of the now discontinued "Swiss Chocolate" ice cream which was an orange creamsicle sherbet with chocolate chips in it!!!
If you have not tried using an ice cream maker the final results come out more soft than hard. To harden you need to put into the freezer.
I stirred mine a couple of times during freezing to keep it from turning into a solid frozen juice. With milk or cream it won't be that solid when fully frozen.
The best part is you can mix up your fresh juice and fruit combinations to your and your family preferences. How "cool" is that! (pun intended :-)
