  • 2 cups strawberry slices frozen
  • 1 cup mango cubes frozen - cube fresh mango into 1 inch cubes before freezing
  • 2 bananas frozen - slice into 1/2 inch pieces before freezing
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup buttermilk low fat - makes your ice cream ultra rich & creamy
  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar enhances the taste of the strawberries and mango


  • Add all the above ingredients to a food processor, or heavy duty blender like the vitamix, in order listed above. Pulse until blended and creamy. Hold onto the food processor until the fruit begins to blend. This process requires stopping and stirring a few times and may take 3-5 minutes to fully blend ingredients. Using an ice cream scoop or large spoon, scoop out approximately three 1/3 cup servings per dish.
  • Consider adding freshly diced strawberries as garnish. YUM, YUM!!!
  • Serve sherbet immediately, recommended. Sherbet can be frozen if stored in an airtight, freezer proof container...although the consistency is creamiest immediately after making.
