Sorbet in a Bag Recipe
What is easier
than making sorbet right in a plastic baggie? This is a great
alternative to making ice cream for kids when you want them
eating something a bit healthier... and because its main ingredients
is juice, you can have fun with the variety of flavors.
2/3 cup pure juice
(meaning real juice, not "juice drink")
Approx one tray of cubed ice
6 tbsp rock (coarse) salt
1 pint size Ziploc bag
1 gallon size Ziploc bag
Place juice in
small ziploc, then seal, being careful to squeeze the air
out before sealing. Fill large bag with ice (should be about
half full) and add rock salt. Place small bag in large bag,
then seal the larger bag too.
Hand off to your
child and shake for about five minutes, or until the juice
has turned into sorbet. Open large bag, wipe off the top of
the ziploc or give a quick rinse under cold water so you don't
get salt in the sorbet. Open small bag and serve!
If doing multiple
batches, you can reuse the large bag of ice, although you
may need to add a handful of fresh ice and a small amount
of salt with each time.
