Feel Good Mint Chocolate Berry Sorbet

This morning this started off as a smoothie but the more I thought about it I wanted it to be more of a Sorbet of sorts.  I made a rather large batch and froze it.  The texture was VERY thick and creamy!  More importantly it was AWESOMELY Flavorful and I can see myself making this more often that is for sure!

I have a few Secret Ingredients in this as well!  WHY!?  Well, I added a little bit of the Super Orange Emergen-C like I did in my previous post trying to fight off potential sniffles!  I THINK I have been successful!  I believe I nipped it in the bud pretty early!  I rarely get sick!  It used to be that I got 4 head colds a year when I was a kid.  When I turned 15 and went VEG I only got one every couple of years.  For the past SEVERAL Years I haven't had ANY Head Colds at all!  I didn't want to ruin my streak so I started pumping up on some foods I knew were helpful as well as a little extra Emergen-C.  Here is the recipe for this Refreshing and Healthy Treat...

1 C Hemp Milk
1 C Mint Chocolate Coconut Milk
1/2 Frozen Banana
12-Ounce Package of Frozen Fruit including Strawberries, Blueberries, Blackberries, and Raspberries
1 Packet of Emergen-C Super Orange
1 Scoop of Garden Of Life's Yerba Mate Energizer Perfect Food

I will mostly snack on this in the evenings for a while.  I might also use it in smoothies a scoop or two at a time!  FUNNY...I used to hate being in the kitchen and was so 'challenged' when it came to cooking and such but I have been enjoying myself quite a bit the last year to year and a half since going Dairy-Free (Veg*n).


  1. Yum, looks great! I like making thick smoothies that come out like this and require a spoon sometimes with plenty of frozen blueberries. :-)

    1. Yuppers! I had this with a spoon for sure! There was just a hint of mint from the Mint Chocolate Coconut Milk I used but it was a nice touch without being too loud :)

  2. Mmmm this sounds great! Love the the thickened texture =)
    You haven't had any head colds? That's awesome! Wow. I get colds way less since going vegan, but I still get a couple a year. You have a super immune system.
    Coconut mint milk? YUM

    1. Since going vegetarian and now vegan I'm so grateful that my immune system has fought off so many things!

      It was Mint Chocolate Coconut Milk from So Delicious - it was wonderful :) I need to get my hands on more of it because the season closes, tho!
