Persimmon Banana Sorbet – Made with a Juicer!
Did you know you can make a persimmon sorbet with the Omega 8006 juicer? All you need is some chopped frozen fruit and the blank screen and you are ready to go. This sorbet recipe is a healthy treat you don’t have to feel guilty about, and it would make a great accompaniment to any holiday dessert.
If you don’t have an Omega 8006 or 8004 juicer then you can use a Champion juicer or a high speed blender such as the Vitamix. (If using a blender, you will need to either add in some fresh fruit or liquid such as water or nut milk.)
Tip For Freezing Your Own Fruit:
If you are freezing your own fruit then I recommend that you chop the fruit into small pieces and lay them flat on a plate, without touching, and freeze them for about an hour. After about an hour, transfer the frozen fruit to a zip lock plastic bag or other air tight container and continue to freeze overnight. Allowing the fruit to freeze first on the plate, will prevent them from being stuck together.
Persimmon Banana Sorbet
1 and half cups ripe Fuyu persimmon (seeds removed) chopped and frozen
1 and half cups banana chopped and frozen
2 tablespoons raisins
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts or pecans
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Using the plunger, run the frozen bananas and frozen persimmons through the Omega 8006 or 8004 with the blank screen on and the oval nozzle attached. Alternate between the frozen banana and the frozen persimmon. Transfer sorbet to a bowl and mix in the raisins, chopped walnuts, and pumpkin pie spice. When ready to serve, top with the date sauce. (recipe for date sauce below) Eat now or freeze for later. Makes about 2 cups sorbet. Serves 2-3.
1 cup water
1/4 cup chopped and pitted mejidool dates
To make the date sauce soak 1/4 cup of chopped mejidool dates in one cup of water for at least 1 hour. Pour the dates and soak water into a high speed blender (such as the Vitamix) and blend until a smooth sauce. Drizzle the sauce on top of your persimmon sorbet and save the rest in the fridge to use as a sweetener at a later date.
