Homemade Sorbet is easy...

Make your own healthy sorbet. Use your favorite fruits and springboard off of this recipe:

Sugar Free Raspberry Sorbet

2 packages organic frozen raspberries

1 C. plain amasake

1 C. brown rice syrup

2 T. agar flakes

1T. Vanilla

Orange zest (optional)

Defrost the berries by placing the bags in the refrigerator over night or leaving on the counter for a couple of hours. Juice the raspberries to remove the seeds. In a saucepan heat the amasake with the agar until the agar is dissolved. (3-5minutes) Place all ingredients in a blender and blend. Transfer to a freezer proof container and freeze overnight. Process in a food processor until smooth and then re-freeze for 6-8hrs before serving.

Chocolate Sauce

1 Cup maple syrup

1 Cup Cocoa powder

1/8 tsp. Sea salt

1 Tablespoon vanilla extract

Boiling water

Place the syrup, cocoa powder, salt and vanilla extract in a food processor or blender and blend. Add boiling water (about 1/4 to 1/2 Cup.) to thin. You will want the sauce to be somewhat thin as it thickens up when it is cold. You might like to add a hint of cinnamon or even cayenne pepper to your sauce.
