Triple Layer Berry Sorbet
Do you know what my 13 year old will tell people his favorite food is? He'll say dessert! He loves to see me squirm. He knows I want him to tell people his favorite food is broccoli, so they can think I must be the best mom on the planet. But he's only being honest. Which I can't fault him for. But what I can do, is make sure our desserts are as healthy as our snacks! Which is why this sorbet just hit's the spot!
We start with frozen berries to make this creamy sorbet, that way we don't have to wait for the sorbet to freeze, it's already frozen!
We simply added blackberries, plain yogurt, and a tablespoon of orange juice concentrate to give it a little kick.
|Triple Layer Berry Sorbet||
- 1 cup frozen blackberries
- 2 tablespoons plain yogurt (plus extra for layering)
- 1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate.
- 1 cup fresh blackberries (or thawed)
- Add 1 cup frozen berries, 2 tablespoon plain yogurt, and the orange juice concentrate in a high powered blender.
- Blend until smooth.
- Layer in a cup thawed or fresh berries, sorbet, and plain yogurt until you reach the top of the cup.
Blackberries are a great food to include in your kids diet! Blackberries have:
- 8 grams of fiber per cup!! That is almost 100% for some kids. Kids need 5 grams of fiber plus their age (example: a 3 year old needs 8 grams of fiber),
- Rich in the protective antioxidant, Vitamin C! This is an important component in immune function.
- Blackberries are high in anthocyanins (the darker the color, the more of this there is), which reduces inflammation!
