0 Recipe #146: Pineapple-Melon Sorbet
This sorbet is tart & sweet, & very refreshing! It's also incredibly easy to make.
Serve between courses to cleanse the palate or as a dessert.
2 c. honey dew melon, cut up into 2" square chunks
5 large fresh mint leaves
2 Tbsp. lime juice
2 egg whites
1 Tbsp. honey
1/2 c. pineapple juice
Directions: Place all ingredients into a blender & pulse until smooth. Pour into an ice cube tray & freeze for 2-3 hours. When frozen solid, remove from freezer & place back into the blender. Pulse only until cubes have broken up into an icy but still thick, frothy concoction. Do not overpulse or mixture will turn to liquid. Garnish with a mint sprig or a lemon/lime slice. Serve immediately.
Yield: Serves 2-4.
Variation: Spike with a splash of Midori melon liqueur. :)
