Healthy Alternatives to Icecream

Healthy Alternatives to Icecream

Hi friends

Spring is indeed in the air in various parts of Australia. Of course, if you happen to be in Melbourne it seems Spring it is in the air for a day.. then it's not.. then it is.. and so on. But we are used that that, right Melburnians?

In any case we when the warmer weather truly does arrive our palates seem to adjust accordingly. What could be more refreshing on a gorgeously warm Saturday arvo than an ice cream?

Fresh fruit sorbet, that's what.

Not only do you lose the dairy (absolutely necessary if you have an allergy or intolerance) and the refined sugar (which we all know we should be avoiding), you gain all the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants contained in your glorious freshly frozen fruit. And we still get the refreshing cool kick!

Fresh fruit sorbets are also great sneaky way to get extra goodness into children's diets. They look appetising and really do taste amazing.

And they are so easy to make with Mod! All you need to do is choose your favourite frozen fruit, let it thaw for 10 or so minutes and run it through Mod with the sorbet strainer! You can either buy already frozen fruit (we always go organic) or freeze your own when seasonal fruits are abundant. Great choices are mango and berries, but you can really experiment with anything.


- Remove desired amount of frozen fruit from the freezer and allow to defrost for 10 minutes or so (longer for larger fruits).

- Replace the metal mesh and plastic rotation wiper with your clear plastic filter in your Mod Cold Press

- Pop your semi defrosted fruit down the juicer chute (keeping your fingers away from the blade), switch on and push down!

- Watch in amazement as your beautiful sorbet is created!

That's it folks! Enjoy your fresh fruit sorbet, entirely guilt free.

Until next time.

Team Mod :)

  • Tonight we made a mango, peach, and dragon fruit sorbet. DELICIOUS!!!

    I’ve found it makes it a bit easier to prep by mixing fruits I want to sorbet and dividing them into sealy bags for freezing. That way we just pull out a sealy bag, wait 5 mins for it to defrost a little, and put it through our MOD juicer. It comes out mixed well. Easy!

    I’m wondering if you have any advice on how to stop leftover sorbet from becoming overly hard when kept in the freezer?
