Although this post is sponsored by Welch’s® Frozen Fruits, all opinions are my own. I love keeping frozen fruit on hand for when the kids want a quick smoothie, or as an easy way to cool down a lunch box (and provide an afternoon snack) – but recently, I wanted to make a special treat that went beyond smoothies for a delicious dessert the kids would go crazy for – and this 3 Ingredient Fruit Sorbet fit the bill perfectly! * This post may contain affiliate links for your convenience. Click here for my full disclosure. My kids love treats. I love heathy whole foods. Sometimes those two sentences don’t go together for this super busy mom. However, ever since I discovered this amazingly simple recipe, my kids have been more than excited to tell me they are hungry for a special treat!
How to Make 3 Ingredient Fruit Sorbet
First, gather your ingredients:
- 3-4 Cups Welch’s Frozen Fruit
- 1 Cup water
- 3/4 Cup sugar
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
We did one batch using Welch’s Frozen Fruit in Tropical Blend and one sorbet with Welch’s Frozen Fruit in Antioxidant Fruit Blend.
Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan and heat over medium heat until the water is reduced by approximately half. This process will take about 20 minutes – stir occasionally to prevent burning and to ensure no sugar is sticking to the bottom of the saucepan. Remove from heat to cool slightly.
Fill a smoothie blender with half of the fruit and then top with 1/4 cup of the syrup and the lemon juice. Blend until smooth and then add the remaining fruit and syrup.
Once the fruit is completely pureed, pour it out into your freezing container – loaf pans or glass casserole dishes work nicely.
Freeze for 2 hours or overnight.
When ready to serve, let it sit out for a couple minutes to soften for easy scooping and portioning.
You can alternatively cut the sorbet out of its container and add to a blender for a quick 10 second puree for an icy beverage. Either way, this recipe is delicious with fresh fruit flavors from Welch’s and a pleasantly smooth texture. I’m so excited about these new 48oz bags of Welch’s Frozen Fruit that comes in three delicious blends: Tropical Blend, Blueberry Fusion, and Antioxidant Fruit Blend. The bags are the perfect size for my family and the blends do half of the work for me! Not to mention, it’s a lot cheaper to buy these than to buy the fresh fruit, especially out of season.
We purchased ours at Meijer for $9.99 each for the 48oz bags – ours were at the bottom of the freezer unit probably because they are the biggest bags of fruit they had to offer! Welsh’s Frozen Fruit is flash frozen so it retains its freshness and flavor, making it possible to enjoy fresh fruit no matter what season it is.
