Grapefruit Sorbet. Where do I begin? Well first of all, I’d apologized for the delayed post. It’s been a wacky few days. From surviving a city-wide flood (for real) to surviving the dentist office.
I swear, I think they get a kick outta using that small hook scraper.
And also my voice is shot/horse. I got to witness the Texans first playoff win.EVER. And I can barely talk without my voice cracking. Oh well.
But back to subject title at hand. I realized last post that I talked about tryin to lose weight. Baked Eggnog French Toast prob wasnt the best post to start the year with. But I got somethin 4 y’all!
I know, I know. ANOTHER SORBET??!!
But this is actually a healthy dessert. If ya’ didnt know, Grapefruit (allegedly) helps with the fat breakdown. I can attest. Back after I graduated high skool (I like to spell it that way. Don’t Judge) I ballooned in weight due to going to a certain fast food chain 3 times a week with my friends. We were cheap back then and thought “EH. Why not”
That summer I drank grapefruit juice a lot. And it sorta worked.
Now will I have a weight loss commercial with me now and a obviously photoshopped pic of me stretched wide claiming that was me “BEFORE”. No.
But Grapefruit, after getting over the extremely bitter taste can be delish. Yeah I said it. Delish.
So how to make it? Shockingly easy.
- 3 Cups of Grapefruit Juice
- 1 1/2 C of Sugar
- 1 1/2 C of Water
Sidenote: Bring the Sugar and Water to a boil to make a simple syrup. Then add the Grapefruit Juice and let that come up to a boil.
And thats it. Now if y’all got an ice cream maker, use that. If not like moi. It’s simple but it does take some time. I’d suggest making it on a weekend when you not working.
Basically take your cooled down mixture and put in the fridge and every 45 minutes take it out and use a handmixer to break up the ice. And put back in the freezer.
Keep doing that until it has the texture of ice cream. I had to look that up.(Shout out to David Lebovitz).
And you’ll get something like this
So if y’all wanna something to feel less guilty about. Gon’ head and give it a try. It’s got the grapefruit flavor with a little sweetness to it.
Now excuse me, I gotta go start training (again) for this race I’m fixin to run on Sunday at the crack of dawn.
Hopefully I wont get trampled. Fingers Crossed.
