Kiwi Sherbet!

I have been remiss in my blogging duties, but I do have an excuse.
First, I was sick for a couple of weeks, and hardly felt like being alive, much less baking anything.
Second, when I got back to my apartment, I discovered that my minor mouse problem had turned into a major mouse problem. Let's just say I found surprises in my bed and in my kitchen drawers. T____T

So aaaaaanyway, here's something entirely out of season. (but you know what? Sometimes ice cream is best in the winter. Just ask this guy.)
The best part, though? Three ingredients!

Kiwi Sherbet:
1/2 cup of heavy cream
1/2 cup of sugar
2-3 Kiwifruit (enough to make 1/2 cup of puree)

Mash up the kiwis, enough so that you don't have to blend them too much. If you blend them for too long, the seeds get pulverized and it's not pretty. Of course, you can always not use the part with seeds, but I think it looks better with them :)

Whisk everything together, and pop it in your ice cream maker. Follow the manufacturer's directions.
If you don't have an ice cream machine, do what I did as a kid; shake it in a plastic bag!

If you'd like yours a little greener, add a tiny bit of green and yellow food dye. JUST A LITTLE. You don't want it looking too artificial XD

Put the sherbet in the freezer for a couple of hours to set up further and enjoy!



  1. Oh! This looks so good!!
    Too bad I'm allergic to kiwi..

    Love from Stockholm..

  2. this is kiwi ice cream. sherbet is such cause it has no cream/dairy in it :)

  3. The definitions of sherbet I've seen it say it contains dairy. In any case, this is super far removed from any ice cream I've had, and much closer to sherbet. Sorbet contains no dairy, as far as I'm aware :-)
