5 minute tropical sorbet {sugar free, dairy free, vegan}23

Posted on February 25, 2013 by ChristieKid friendly, Sweet Treats, Vegan, Vegetarian

Do you want to hang onto summer for just a little while longer? Me too.

Well lovely, you’re in luck, because I’ve come up with a solution.

First, go and buy the last of the cheap mangoes and bananas, then hurry back to the kitchen. Next, peel and chop up the flesh and chuck it into a container and pop it into the freezer.

The last bit is the tough bit… wait 4 hours or overnight for those fruit babies to freeze. Once they’re completely solid, you’re only 5 minutes away from stuffing your face full of sorbet. Healthy sorbet.

So to have this recipe ready in 5 minutes you need to get organised the night before, but once the fruit is frozen all you have to do is blitz it up in the food processor and, bam!, you’ve got instant sorbet that’s sugar-free, dairy-free and super healthy.

If oat milk doesn’t float your boat, substitute with the same amount of another dairy-free milk such as coconut, almond, rice or soy. Coconut really amps up the tropical vibe too.

The result straight from the food processor is similar to soft-serve in consistency and ready to eat. If you are making it in advance you can freeze in a container and then pop in the fridge for 30 minutes before ready to serve.

Top with fresh passionfruit or other tropical fruits like lychee, mangosteen or finely diced pineapple to complete the experience. It’s also perfect for the kids as there’s no sugar and they get a serve of fruit in a really yummy way.

Enjoy basking in that fresh summer glow all autumn long as you tuck into your freezer stash of summer :)

5 minute tropical sorbet

makes 6-8 scoops

  • 2 large bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen until completely solid
  • 2 small mangoes, peeled, sliced and frozen until completely solid
  • 125ml (1/2 cup) Vitasoy Oatmilk Original
  • 2-3 passionfruits, to garnish (optional)

1. Place the frozen mango and frozen banana into the bowl of a food processor. Pour in the oatmilk and blitz for 2-3 minutes until smooth.

2. Serve immediately for the perfect soft sorbet texture topped with fresh passionfruit. If preferred, transfer to a plastic container and freeze until ready to serve, however you will need to sit the container at room temperature for 10 minutes or so to soften before it becomes soft enough to scoop.

  • Yummmm! That looks great! I’ve made a mango sorbet similar on my blog before. I also love whizzing frozen bananas with cocoa powder and/or peanut butter in the food processor. So good!!

  • This just made my mouth water!

    • Happy for you to drool all the way over to my place and finish off the container :)

  • InTolerant Chef

    Sounds great indeed! I just adore mangoes, and lychees are great with mint, yummo!

  • That looks so divine and refreshing. I’m glad tomorrow will be a nice hot day.

    • It’s delicious in any weather, but a nice hot day would really make it sing, enjoy :)

  • GourmetGetaway

    Oh I just love this idea!!! If we get anymore hot weather I will be making this for the kiddies :)

    • My lil Miss 2 even enjoys this on rainy days. Hope your little ones like it!

    Oh the waiting is the hardest part. Anything that needs soaking/freezing/chilling overnight can be excruciatingly painful to twiddle thumbs over… Can someone please come up with a way to make this stuff magically happen instantly? This looks absolutely beautiful Christie.

    • I know! Waiting is the worst part of cooking, but the transformation from raw ingredients to something delicious is incredible! :)

  • We cut up and stashed a box of mangoes in our freezer a few weeks ago, looking forward to a little taste of summer from the freezer when it gets all cold and wintery! This looks delicious :) Tatum x

    • Very clever Tatum! They will come in handy in all sorts of ways – I love a bit of frozen mango in my smoothies.

  • Yummo Christie! These are my favourite kind of ice creams! Love the passionfruit!

    • They are so cheap at the moment – a big bag of 8 passion fruits for $5, can you believe it?!! I snatched up two bags. I’m so greedy.

  • Lizzie B

    That looks delicious! I love sorbets. I will be stocking up on fruits for the freezer and waiting for this rain to pass over Melbourne. Thanks for sharing!

    • Oh the rain, when will it go away! Hope this recipe brings a little sunshine to your crazy melbourne weather :)

  • Nic@diningwithastud
