Frozen fruit is a godsend when it’s a little too early for summer fruit at the markets. If you’re doing the Fast Metabolism Diet, this recipe is great for Phase 3 for a sweet end to your lunch, satisfying your healthy fat and fruit requirements. You could also leave out the sunflower seeds to make it appropriate for a Phase 1 fruit, and you could easily swap fruits to change it up. Mango works well for Phase 1, first instance.
Peach Sorbet with Sunflower Seeds
4 cups ice
½ cup birch-based xylitol
2 cups frozen peach chunks
¼ cup sunflower seeds
4 mint leaves (optional)
Place all ingredients in a Vitamix (or other powerful blender). Blend until smooth. Serve immediately or freeze to desired consistency.
If your blender isn’t that powerful, your sorbet will turn out chunkier and soupier at first. Just pour it in a bowl and freeze for 30 minutes or until it’s the consistency you want.
