Snack Match: Ice Cream

A snack match is an allergy-friendly snack that nutritionally and/or visually resembles a popular children't snack.

This week's snack is:
Ice Cream

Snack Match substitute:  Fruit Sorbet

Fruit Sorbet

3 cups frozen fruit
1/2 - 1 cup juice or water
1/2 cup sugar
  1. Place frozen fruit into a blender with 1/2 cup juice or water.  Blend until smooth, adding water or juice as needed.
  2. Place fruit mixture in a counter-top ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  3. Once frozen, place in a container and freeze for a few hours to reach desired consistency.  Stir the container about every hour to maintain the smooth texture.
NOTE:  If you do not have an ice cream maker, you may place the fruit mixture in a freezable glass baking dish.  Place the container in the freezer for 3 hours, removing it to stir the mixture about every 1/2 hour until frozen.


  1. Good idea. I think I might try this. Just have to find a time when I'm free every 1/2 hr for three hours. (:

  2. Before I invested in the ice cream maker, I would make it in the evening or we'd mix it together so it would freeze during nap time. This way, the sorbet is ready when everyone wakes up!
