I had some leftover passion fruit puree sitting in the fridge and since I’m getting ready to move across the country I had to think of a way to use it up. I figured that since it’s summer and it’s going to be so hot out down here in Tennessee that sorbet sounded just right! Now this passion fruit sorbet is a bit tart but sweet at the same time. It is so addicting that I couldn’t keep my hands off the ice cream container and just kept spooning this stuff into my mouth. It’s that good and perfect for a hot day to cool off.
I used frozen passion fruit puree; if you happen to be able to find fresh passion fruit, then use that! Just add it into a food processor and puree it really well and then strain it through a fine mesh sieve. You can use any fruit puree you want instead of making it a passion fruit sorbet. Sorbet is so versatile and easy that it doesn’t require a lot of ingredients to make.
Above are some products that I personally use and recommend for this recipe and to have for everyday use. I highly recommend starting off with the cuisinart ice cream machine as your first ice cream maker. It’s the cheapest one on amazon and I personally use it and love it! I also suggest getting a reusable ice cream container as well, it’s dishwasher safe and you can use it over and over again!
