    Oh my gosh, that sounds so yummy! I’m cooking for one and wondering if this will keep in the freezer or if it has to be eaten at once. Also, is sugar necessary for the consistency or can I use something like Splenda instead?

      Hi Stacy! We imagine the Splenda would work the same as sugar since this isn’t a baked product, but if you try it please let us know how it turns out.

      As far as keeping it in the freezer to eat later, we actually kept the leftover sorbet from the shoot in a freezer. We would suggest putting the leftovers in an airtight container and freezing up to 3 weeks. Take it out of the fridge and allow it to soften for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. The consistency will be more icy than creamy, but it still tastes good!

    I do the same but without sugar, yogurt or lemon juice- I use a frozen, yet slightly thawed banana- shred it in the food processor first, shred any other frozen (slightly thawed) fruit, then put the chopping blade in to puree it. The sweetness comes from the bananas and it is the consistency of soft serve frozen yogurt or sorbet. SO good!
