Refreshing and bursting with sweet plum flavor we love this simple sorbet. So easy to throw together too! Perfect for a weekend treat…..or a weekday. Sorbets are so nice because the fruit they are made out of really shine and take center stage. A lovely way to enjoy summer/fall fruit.
You could definitely use any color of plums that you want, purple plums would look beautiful too. Or, you could make one batch of yellow and one of purple and serve them together! That would look stunning.
I used a light colored coconut sugar from our local Asian store to make this, but you could use whatever natural sweetener you wanted. My recommendation is to start with the 1/3 of a cup I call for and taste test. Depending on how sweet your plums are, you may want to add more. I like to keep it tart and sweet, so I wouldn’t over do the sweetener. It should be refreshing, not overly sweet.
Yellow Plum Sorbet
3 cups of halfed yellow plums (this doesn’t need to be exact)
1/3 cup of coconut sugar (or sweetener of your choice)
dash of salt
1-Over a bowl (to catch any juices), cut the plums in half, removing the pit. Put the pitted plums into a measuring cup until you reach three cups.
2-In a food processor, process the plums with any juices caught in the bowl, with the sugar and dash of salt until well combined and the plums are completely pureed.
3-Stir through a fine sieve to remove the skins, and then make in your ice cream maker according to it’s instructions.
4-Allow to ripen in the freezer for about two hours and serve. If you have left it in the freezer for longer, allow to defrost for about 15 minutes before serving.
