I have had a blast playing around with my Vitamix since I got it last August. I am always looking for new recipes and ways to utilize it’s great features. This sorbet was a big hit!

The beautiful green color comes, not from the lime, but from the spinach in this dessert! This is a kid-friendly recipe and a great way to sneak some extra greens into your diet. Also, this is dairy-free, so a great frozen treat for people (like me) who are lactose intolerant. Enjoy~
Lime Mint Sorbet
1/2 cup Welch’s frozen grape juice concentrate (the one with the yellow lid and no added sugar), thawed
1/2 banana, peeled
1/2 cup fresh or frozen pineapple
1/2 to 1 cup fresh organic spinach leaves ( I use about 3/4 cup)
1 small slice of lime, including peel
1 mint leaf
3 cups ice
Put all ingredients into the blender in order listed. Blend on high for 45 seconds to 1 minute, pressing down with tamper to blend well. When the machine sound changes and four mounds form, the sorbet is ready to serve. Serve immediately.
