Ingredients

Storing and Freezing

If you aren’t serving this sorbet immediately you can store it in an airtight container with a lid. It will last in the freezer for up to 2 weeks however I recommend enjoying it in the first few days to maintain the best taste and texture.

It will be too hard to scoop when you take it out so let it soften on the counter for 5-10 minutes before eating.

      1. I read that if you let the kiwi ripen to almost mushy it will be at the height of its sweetness.

      2. 5 stars
        Such a great way to serve kiwi. My kiwi was a bit sour, so I added some sugar. The addition of lime was super refreshing.

        1. Yes, it is definitely a bit of a tart treat. Adding a hint of sugar sounds lovely. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks Anita.

      3. 5 stars
        Omg, so genius and healthy!! This was super easy…i think next time I will try the coconut milk cream–that sounds super yummy!

      4. 5 stars
        So cool and refreshing – just in time for the hot summer days. Love the variation idea of some coconut milk cream – YUM!

      5. I love the sound of this! I am very interested in your dairy free items. I have a mammal meat allergy which includes dairy from any of those mammals. Could I do other fruit the same way with this same recipe?

      6. For years I would only make banana soft serve without branching out to other fruits, but lately I’ve been trying it with peaches and berries. I need to try it with kiwis next!

        1. I know, right?! Peaches and berries sound amazing!! The kiwi is tart and delicious. We absolutely loved it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks Chelsea!

      7. I never would have thought to use kiwi like this! Looks delicious. PS. welcome to Vancouver (I know a little late! Haha)

        1. Hey Danielle! Thanks so much. ๐Ÿ™‚ I like your new site too! Lots of great tips for things I need to do here in Vancouver.
