Banana Sorbet With Orange Juice & Honey - A Healthy Summer Treat !!!
Sorbet is a frozen dessert made from sugar/honey, water and fresh fruit. It is natural, fat free and includes all of the benefits of eating fruit - vitamins, minerals and antioxidants - rolled into one yummy dessert.
How to make it ?
Step-1 Make a simple syrup by combining sugar and water in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly until the sugar melts. Allow it to cool and set it aside.
Step-2 Take two bananas and cut them into small pieces
Step-3 Place it in a blender along with the sugar syrup, honey and orange juice and puree until smooth.
Step-4 You can make this without an ice cream maker and believe us it is pretty easy and simple .Put the mixture in a glass or steel bowl and freeze it for about 50 minutes. Remove it and whisk the sorbet . Put it back in the freezer and stir once every hour for about 3-4 hours. This will make the mixture airy light and creamy.
And your summer dessert is ready!!!

Clean eating most certainly does not mean boring food! There is a healthy version of almost everything! You just need to look out for it ;)
Our fruit, granola & yoghurt parfaits are so delicious but minus the guilt! The secret is to make your own granola and not buy the stuff available at supermarkets. Its loaded with sugar & preservatives.
Lets get right into the recipe!!
Roast a handful of rolled oat , raisins and nuts (almonds, walnuts etc) of your choice in a pan. Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon powder. When brown & crispy add a tiny amount of honey (we added just half a teaspoon). Thats it, your granola is ready! Alternately you can bake this mixture in an oven for 20 mins or until crisp & brown.
Simple enough? Lets move forward.
Chop one banana, one mango & one pear into tiny pieces. Mix them together. Add some grapes to this fruit mix.
We have used fruits that are seasonal, cheap & readily available. You can add berries to this or any other fruits that you like of similar consistency!
And now it's really just an assembly job. In mason jars or wine glasses or any other clear glass containers you fancy layer fruits, yogurt and granola. Repeat till you reach the very top!
Thats it your guilt free parfait is ready. These are best served chilled! An ideal breakfast, snack or dessert that you can whip up in minutes and is bound to impress! Needless to say, this is extremely clean & healthy ;)
