Blueberry Ginger Sorbet Recipe

Description

Our Blueberry Ginger Sorbet is a refreshing and vibrant dessert that combines the sweet tang of blueberries with the spicy warmth of ginger. This antioxidant-rich sorbet is made by simmering fresh blueberries with ginger, then sweetening with stevia for a healthier treat. It's an excellent choice for cooling down on a hot day or serving at a summer gathering, offering a sophisticated flavor with healthful benefits.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons stevia or to taste

Instructions

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the blueberries, grated ginger, and water. Simmer until the blueberries start to burst and release their juices, about 10 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Sweeten the mixture with stevia, adjusting the amount to your preference.
  3. Pour the mixture into a blender and blend until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh sieve to remove any pulp and ginger fibers.
  4. Transfer the strained liquid to a shallow dish and place in the freezer.
  5. Freeze for about 2 hours, then scrape with a fork to break up the ice crystals. Return to the freezer and repeat scraping every 30 minutes until the sorbet is fluffy and light, about 4 hours total.
  6. Serve the sorbet immediately or store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to two weeks.
