#16 - Homemade sorbet - nothing extra added
I LOVE our juicer.
It makes fruit sorbets, pasta, nut butters, etc.  SO AWESOME!

We decided to make a sorbet out of strawberries, pineapples, and bananas that we froze.
We passed it through our masticating juicer twice and it was SO creamy and delicious.

I loved that it was all natural.  I didn't have to feel guilty letting Y enjoy it.  It was like ice cream to her. :D


























Well, that's it folks!!
Since our fast, we are still juicing everyday at least for breakfast.
H is still juicing for both breakfast and lunch almost everyday.


Let me know if you make any of these!
Seriously... #8 is the bomb.  We added lychee once to it.  DELICIOUS!!!


:D
