Let’s dive into the recipe and explore how the ingredients contribute to your well-being.


  • 2 cups fresh berries (such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (optional, adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 cup coconut water or water

Have you ever thought about incorporating some herbs with your dessert? These ingredients can add unique flavors and healthy benefits to your recipe. Remember to use them sparingly and adjust to taste. Here are a few suggestions to consider;

Healing Benefits:

Berries: Packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber, berries contribute to overall health and well-being. They help boost immunity, support digestion, and promote healthy skin.

Bananas: Rich in potassium, vitamin C, and other nutrients, bananas are known for their ability to support heart health, regulate blood pressure, and provide a natural energy boost.

Lemon Juice: Lemon juice is alkalizing to the body and helps detoxify the system. It also provides a refreshing burst of citrus flavor to the sorbet.

Honey or Maple Syrup: Natural sweeteners like honey or maple syrup add a touch of sweetness to the sorbet while providing additional health benefits. Honey has antimicrobial properties, while maple syrup contains antioxidants and minerals.

Coconut Water: A hydrating and electrolyte-rich beverage, coconut water helps replenish fluids and minerals lost during hot summer days. It also adds a hint of tropical flavor to the sorbet.


  1. In a blender or food processor, combine the fresh berries, sliced banana, fresh lemon juice, honey or maple syrup (if using), and coconut water or water.
  2. Blend until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides of the blender or food processor as needed to ensure all ingredients are well incorporated.
  3. Taste the sorbet mixture and adjust the sweetness level if necessary by adding more honey or maple syrup.
  4. Once the sorbet mixture reaches your desired consistency and taste, transfer it to a shallow dish or ice cream maker conveniently found on Amazon.
  5. If using an ice cream maker, follow the manufacturer’s instructions to churn the sorbet until it reaches a firm but scoopable texture.
  6. If not using an ice cream maker, place the dish of sorbet mixture in the freezer and let it freeze for 3-4 hours, stirring every hour to prevent ice crystals from forming.
  7. Once the sorbet is frozen, scoop it into bowls or cones, garnish with fresh mint leaves if desired, and serve immediately.
