Recipe ReDux: Honey Nectarine Sorbet

July’s Recipe ReDux challenge asks ReDuxers to “show how you are using fresh July fruits or veggies”. I love the idea of preparing something seasonal, but I thought I would take it one step further and create something that helps beat the summer heat. This Honey Nectarine Sorbet tastes sweet and refreshing and is made with Greek yogurt, so it packs a protein punch. Not to mention that it’s a beautiful coral color without any additives!

Makes 2 servings (about 2 cups)

Ingredients:

3 nectarines, peeled and sliced

½ teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon honey

6-ounce container of low-fat plain Greek yogurt (non-fat freezes into a block, so opt for some fat)

Honey Nectarine Sorbet 3

Directions:

1) Combine the nectarines, vanilla, honey and yogurt in a food processer or blender. Blend until there are no noticeable chunks.

2) Put in a Tupperware and freeze for at least 3 hours.

3) When ready to eat, spoon it out of the Tupperware and top with a drizzle of honey (optional).

Nutrition Notes:

  • One medium nectarine has only 60 calories. It’s a perfect sweet and indulgent summer snack!
  • A nectarine has almost 20% the daily value of Vitamin C
  • A container of Greek yogurt contains about 15g of protein and 20% of the daily value of calcium. That means this sorbet is the perfect after-workout snack!
