My favorite skinny-girl sorbet recipe

LOVE ICE-CREAM BUT NOT THE CALORIES 

I grew up in an Italian home, so one of the first things I learnt as a child was how to tell the difference between gelato, sorbet and ice-cream. While my grandmother (Nonna) only ever ate lemon sorbet, my siblings and I were never loyal to just one flavor! One of my absolute weaknesses is Gelato, I just love it! But I don’t love – the calories!

 

Here’s a recipe I found a few years ago and it’s one of my favourite treats to whip up whenever I'm craving some icy-deliciousness!

Ingredients:

500g frozen raspberries (or your choice of berry)

2 tablespoons of honey

1/2 cup of Greek yogurt (low fat if you want)

1 Banana

 

Mix it all up and serve!
