My mother enjoyed cooking but never had much time to spend in the kitchen. Being a working mom meant leaving early in the mornings and coming home late at night.
One thing I can say about my mom was that she cooked healthy even when healthy cooking wasn’t necessarily cool.
I grew up in the 70’s – the time of boxed meals and casseroles loaded with canned soups. While my mom loved convenience cooking, she also liked to experiment with blending fruits and creating healthy drinks and desserts.
In fact, I can remember her buying and using a dehydrator before they were even trendy. She would dehydrate all kinds of fruits and call them candy.
While I can look back now and am thankful that she showed me a healthier side of cooking, as a young child it wasn’t so great. I thought pureed prunes was chocolate until I first tried a piece of a friend’s chocolate candy bar at school – what a shocker!
I can also remember my mom packing my school lunch which seeded bread with a thick hamburger patty that she managed to cook up before leaving for work. How I longed for the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on white sliced bread that my friends were enjoying.
For some reason, my friends never wanted to trade lunches with me – go figure…
Anyway, this Watermelon Strawberry Sorbet recipe is one my mom would have loved. Only three ingredients necessary and all of them healthy.
I puree watermelon, strawberries and a touch of honey in a blender and then pour the juice into a small dish and place it in the freezer.
This frozen dessert is not only healthy but refreshingly delicious too. It’s a sweet dessert without the guilt, calories or excess sugar.
Watermelon Strawberry Sorbet
A sorbet is a simple combination of fresh fruit with sugar – that’s it! Instead of using sugar, I use honey.
You don’t really have to use honey in this recipe if you don’t want to but I find that when you puree and freeze fruit, it tastes less sweet than it would if you eat it unfrozen. You don’t need to add much, just about 1/4 cup of honey is perfect.
Depending on the blender you use, you might find you need to add a little water to help the fruit puree. I use a Vitamix and don’t really need to add any but when I’m making this sorbet in my other blender, I find a few tablespoons of water seems to be enough to get the fruits blended.
