What could be better than an antioxidant-laden sweet treat that you don’t have to feel guilty about? I’ve combined two berries with the highest antioxidant levels – acai and blueberries – in a wonderfully refreshing sorbet. You can find frozen acai berry pulp in the frozen fruit section of Whole Foods Market and other grocery stores. It comes in packets that are the perfect size for adding to your morning smoothie.

Acai-Berry Sorbet

What could be better than an antioxidant-laden sweet treat that you don’t have to feel guilty about? I’ve combined two berries with the highest antioxidant levels – acai and blueberries – in a wonderfully refreshing sorbet.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup water
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 2 3.5-oz packs Acai pulp, thawed
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lime juice

Instructions

  1. Bring sugar and water to a boil in a small saucepot over medium high heat until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and stir in the lime zest. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  2. Combine the Acai pulp, blueberries and lime juice in a blender and puree until smooth. Add the cooled sugar syrup and blend just until it’s thoroughly mixed, about 10 seconds.
  3. Pour the mixture into the chilled bowl of an ice cream machine and churn until thickened, about 30 minutes. Place the sorbet in a freezer-safe container and freeze until firm, at least 2 hours.
