Sorbet Tip   The summertime means a lot of tasty fruits are in season. Freeze fresh fruit and save them to include in sorbets months later.


Choose fruit-based desserts like sorbet over dairy-based desserts. Fresh fruit is virtually fat-free and will help you achieve the Olympian level of fitness you’ve always strived for. Ditch the dairy >>

Peach Sorbet

Peach Sorbet

To freeze canned peaches, simply drain off all the liquid and lay slices on a baking sheet in a single layer. Place the sheet in the freezer. Once peaches are frozen, they can be transferred to an airtight container.


Makes 2 1-cup servings

2 cups frozen canned peach slices
1 - 2 tablespoons frozen apple juice concentrate or white grape juice concentrate
1/2 cup vanilla rice milk


In a blender combine all ingredients. Blend on high speed until thick and smooth. You will need to stop the blender occasionally and use a spoon or rubber spatula to move the unblended fruit to the center. Serve immediately.
