We have been eating fresh kiwis like crazy.  Well……..when I say we I really mean my 2 year old and I.  My 4 year old has suddenly become picky with certain foods!  It is so funny to me because I almost think it is an independence thing for her.  She loves saying she doesn’t like this or that, when I know that she actually probably does.  Today my girls were playing dress-up and they were pretending to be ‘mean’ princesses.   I told them I was going to make them some special ‘mean’ princess fancy sorbet.  I knew that even though she doesn’t ‘like’ kiwi right now, she could not resist the fancy sorbet.  If you have a picky eater, a frozen fruit sorbet is a great way to get them to eat fresh fruit.

You can make this in 3 simple steps:

1) Peel your fruit.  (Unless you are using berries – then just rinse)

2) In a blender or food processor, blend your fruit, honey, and lemon juice.  Pour into a shallow container to freeze.  You can also use an ice cream maker if you have one.

A fantastic way to enjoy Kiwi is to make it into a sorbet!

3) If you used an ice cream maker, your sorbet will have a softer consistency and will be ready to serve.  If you froze it in your freezer, then it will be a little harder.  Ours took about 2 hours to freeze.  One trick you can do is to scoop it back into your food processor and blend for just a few seconds to soften it up.  Then serve!

While they were eating their fancy sorbet, I told my girls to show me their meanest princess face.  My 4 year old was pretty good at it…………my 2 year old is still working on it.  Ha.  I love having little girls.

Even a mean princess loves kiwi sorbet!
If your kids love kiwi, they will surely enjoy this sorbet!

We buy a lot of our produce from a program called Bountiful Baskets and lately we’ve been getting a lot of kiwi. My husband and son will just cut them in half and eat them with a spoon so I think this is a great recipe to try out on them. Thank you! 🙂

I just made this for 3 toddlers and they gobbled it up. Delicious! I poured the extra into popsicle containers for later. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Every half hour or so stir and back in freezer. Also if for adults you can add a bit of alcohol to keep it from freezing hard. And you can cut and scoop kiwi instead of peeling, much less waste and easier.
