Soothing Summer Sorbets

It's too hot to cook! Let's cool things off with not one, but four colorful variations of fruity summer sorbets. Nava Atlas of VegKitchen.com created these frosty gems. Once you learn her simple technique, you can create your own flavor combinations. Try creamy coconut banana, lemon blueberry, raspberry lime, strawberry mango, and more! Find some shade, relax, and enjoy.

Ingredients:
4 to 4 1/2 cups diced fresh fruit
1/2 to 3/4 cup frozen fruit juice concentrate, to taste

Extra fruit and mint leaves for ganish (optional)

Variations
Honeydew-Lime:
Combine 4 to 4 1/2 cups ripe, sweet honeydew and 1/2 to 3/4 cup limeade concentrate.

Peach-Mango-Pineapple: Combine more or less equal amounts of peach and mango chunks (if mango is unavailable, use all peaches or combine peaches and nectarines or apricots) to equal 4 to 4 1/2 cups, and 1/2 to 3/4 cup pineapple juice concentrate.

Cantaloupe-Orange: Combine 4 to 4 1/2 cups cantaloupe and 1/2 to 3/4 cup orange juice concentrate. If you’d like, add 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk to give it a bit of a creamsicle flavor.

Triple Berry: Combine 2 cups hulled strawberries with 2 cups blueberries and 1/2 cup berry concentrate.


Directions:

  1. Combine the fruit and juice concentrate in a food processor and process until smoothly pureed. Transfer to a shallow freezer pan and freeze for several hours until firm (but not a block of ice).
  2. About an hour before serving, scoop out and transfer back to the food processor. Puree until smooth, then transfer back to the pan. Freeze until the desired consistency to serve. Tip: A chilled metal container works best.
  3. Serve in small rounded scoops in dessert bowls, garnished with a bit of the fresh fruit or fruits from which the sherbet was made, and, if possible, a mint leaf or two.

The Health Benefits of Fruit

Living vegan makes it easier than ever to get a healthy, colorful array of fruits into your diet. Here’s a quick look at some of the many benefits of various fruits:

Bananas are high in potassium and low in sodium. Helping to lower your risk of high blood pressure and stroke. They also contain protease inhibitors that can prevent stomach ulcers.

Blueberries are rich in antioxidants that help fight cancer and prevent macular degeneration. Like cranberries, blueberries can protect against urinary tract infections.

One orange offers almost a full day's vitamin C, plus potassium. The opaque membrane around each wedge has hesperidin, which can lower cholesterol. According to research, even the scent of an orange is calming.

Strawberries can help control type 2 diabetes and prevent heart disease and inflammation. Strawberries are also an excellent source of vitamin C and other antioxidants.

Apples provide a high dose of soluble fiber (to lower cholesterol) and insoluble fiber (to keep you regular). Apples are also an excellent source of antioxidants.

Get Inspired at AR 2012!

We are just weeks away from the Animal Rights 2012 National Conference!  This year’s conference will take place on August 2-5 at the Alexandria Mark Center Hilton, near Washington DC.

Animal Rights 2012 is designed for people who would like to improve their animal advocacy and network with other animal advocates. This year's conference features 80 speakers in nearly 100 sessions, 90 exhibits (free and open to the public), video premieres, networking receptions, free snacks, newcomer orientations, and much more!

"I'll never be the same after the AR conference! It was the most meaningful and impactful experience
of my life... Hearing about the experiences and accomplishments of other individuals and groups dedicated to helping the animals motivated me far beyond my previous expectations and beliefs of what can be done..."
- Marsha Hargreaves
