Whole Fruit Sorbet- The Perfect Sweet Treat for our Family
My children can't have dairy, so the ice cream of my childhood has become sorbet for theirs. In truth, as a picky mom I enjoy the fruit flavors and chunks of real fruit in their desserts. I first tried the Whole Fruit bars a few years ago with my family and we were hooked. This time around, I was able to get a hold of whole containers and many new flavors to review and I think we fell in love all over again.
One of my goals has been to reduce our sugar intake. I am pregnant and also just don't want my kids to be "buzzing" with sweet desires everyday. These sorbets are perfect for that. With real fruit and no added sugar or artificial flavors we can still chill out with our spoons and not feel like we are having to choose between flavor and sugar.
My favorite is definitely the lemon. Tart, smooth and cold, it was hard to share, but my son is also a fan of sour treats. The lemon isn't sour-face inducing, but it is also true to real lemon flavor. Such a fine line, I know, but the result is delicious. I am definitely keeping this one on hand.
Next in line came the black cherry flavor. Wow! My kids felt like they had hit the jackpot every time they fished out a big black cherry with their spoon. Rich, deep cherry flavor was the perfect way to end a meal. Again, not overly sweet, but just enough to let me feel like I was treating myself to something special.
My daughter's favorite was the strawberry and my husband is always partial to raspberry. With so many great real fruit flavors, there is bound to be something for everyone in your family as well.
Overall I was thrilled with the Whole Fruit Sorbet collection. Real fruit, real flavor and a treat I am happy to serve to my hungry crew. I don't even miss my ice cream, and I know my kids don't feel left out. Now both the bars and tubs will be regulars in our freezer.
Grab a few flavors at your grocery store and let me know what you think. I want to find their new Valencia Orange sorbet. Doesn't that sound amazing?
