Hi Bold Bakers!
This Chocolate & Banana Sorbet is actually a fruity sorbet masquerading as a sinfully decadent dessert. How is this possible? The base is blended from frozen bananas and mixed with rich cocoa powder; it’s the best of both worlds!
My Homemade Sorbet is made using the exact same logic and engineering as my 2 ingredient No Machine Ice Cream recipe. You need an ingredient (e.g. frozen fruit) to give you a thick base and you add liquid sugar (e.g. condensed milk) to help it freeze. So I thought, why can’t I apply my ice cream technique to a sorbet? Well, you can, I did, it works and it’s awesome!
By definition my recipe is technically more of a sherbet than a sorbet because it contains milk but personally I think it is more of a sorbet than anything.
Condensed Milk is an important ingredient in this recipe and can’t be left out. If you cannot buy it easily then I’ll do you one better and show you how you can make your own. The recipe is very simple and probably more cost effective than buying it in the store. You can find my Homemade Condensed Milk recipe here.
Although I use condensed milk this recipe can be made Vegan by using Dairy Free Condensed Milk. It’s simply made using coconut milk and sugar so this condensed milk is perfect for sorbet and also my Dairy Free Ice Cream recipe. If you do dairy free baking (or just like the taste of coconut) my Dairy Free Condensed Milk recipe is really handy to have a stash in the fridge and it stays fresh for weeks.
Also, you can buy the same ice cream containers I use here on Amazon and check out a few of my favorite frozen treat accessories below.
- 3 cups (15oz/390g) banana, frozen
- ¼ cup (70g/2 ½ oz) fat-free condensed milk
- 6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Combine the bananas, cocoa powder and the condensed milk in a food processor or powerful blender and process until smooth and creamy.
Transfer to a freezable container and let it firm up for about 4 hours to be able to scoop
Keep in the freeze for 6 weeks.
