This month we joined forces with the lovely raw chef, "Raw Judita" Wignall, to present her delicious Guest Blogger Recipe, the Coconut Basil Sorbet, which just happens to be absolutely killer with our Chocolate Miracle Tart! This recipe is exclusively yours, pre-launch of her new book, Raw & Simple Detox, available soon on Amazon. Find more info at www.juditawignall.com. Read on, and try out this refreshing treat while relaxing in the sun!
"Hey Raw Food Lovers, enjoy this tasty detox recipe from my new book! ~Judita
Who would have thought this creamy dessert would be part of your detox cleanse? Go ahead, indulge and enjoy. There’s no guilt whatsoever if sweetened with zero glycemic sweeteners like stevia or xylitol. If sweet basil isn’t your thing, replace with fresh mint or omit it altogether."
COCONUT BASIL SORBET RECIPE
YIELD 4 SERVINGS
PREP TIME: 10 MINUTES
1 cup young Thai coconut meat
1/2 lemon, peeled, seeded
1/2 lime, peeled
1/4 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves
3 cups ice cubes (if using a high speed blender)
1-2 cups water (if using a conventional blender)
Several drops of liquid stevia, xylitol powder, or your favorite sweetener (HM's current fav no calorie sweetener is Monkfruit)
IF USING A HIGH SPEED BLENDER: Blend coconut, lemon, lime, basil and sweetener. Add ice cubes and blend using the tamper to push ingredients into the blades. Continue for 1-2 minutes until smooth, but still icy. Do not over-blend.
IF USING A CONVENTIONAL BLENDER: Replace ice with 1-2 cups water and blend until smooth. Process in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.
-- Thanks Judita!! Our Tart couldn't be in better company!
