Yum! So how about some sorbet after some spring cleaning? I am trying to accomplish spring cleaning/reorganizing with three adorable children, let’s just say I am giving myself an entire month to accomplish my goals. This little dessert is a fun and tasty treat that is super simple to make, come on it’s only three ingredients! The line-up includes: buttermilk, frozen raspberries (yes, that is what the red things are, I left the bag out, ha!) and crushed pineapple.
Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend together. Raspberries, buttermilk and pineapple. Why in the heck do I want to say repeat and then start that sentence over with, “Lather, rinse, repeat . . .as needed!” Anyone know where that random quote/song lyric came from? Ah yes, it’s Phoebe from Friends! Love her quirky songs, bahhhahhaa! Sorry I had to share that spontaneous random and tangent thought of mine .
Even the mixture just pureed is pretty darn good, too! If it is too tart for you just add a couple tablespoons of sugar or a packet of stevia.
The buttermilk gives it a great mouth-feel, more like ice cream but a lot less fat!
Place mixture into containers and freeze for at least two hours.
Dish up and serve!

|Pineapple||Bromelain, yay! Ever heard of this miracle anti-inflammatory nutrient? Pineapple contains a great source of bromelain which is an enzyme shown to help prevent osteoarthritis and alleviate joint pain!|
|Raspberries||One cup of raspberries is only 65 calories! They are a great source of fiber and excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese. Loaded with antioxidants, a study from the USDA ranked raspberries 10th in total plant nutrients capacity out of over 100 common foods, wow!|
|Buttermilk||A low-fat dairy product and great source of calcium! Don’t have buttermilk in your frig, well just make it! Add 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice to one cup of skim or 1% milk and let it stand for 5 minutes.|
I cant wait to try this on a hot summer day . . . ahhh, I don’t even remember what that feels like.
