What you’ll need:
Equipment: Food processor
Ingredients: 7 large bananas, 2 cups of cherries, 1 tablespoon almond extract
Pitt the cherries and peel the bananas, then freeze them overnight or however long it take until they’re frozen solid.. Remove frozen bananas and cherries from freezer and allow to thaw for approximately 10 minutes at room temperature. This will allow the food processor to puree them a lot easier.
Toss frozen bananas and cherries into the food processor, as well as the almond extract. Be sure that the bowl and blade are locked into position before you add the ingredients.
Locked and loaded? Time to turn on your food processor. If you don’t have one of these you could use a blender, but be sure that it is a high-speed blender, like a Vitamix and tamper the shit out of it.
Note: If the fruit is too hard then you can add a bit of water, little by little through the feed. The water helps the fruit to move around in the bowl by softening it slightly. Be careful because if you add too much you get a smoothie. You’ve been warned! If you’re using a blender, you may need to add a bit more water.
Sometimes your sorbet needs a bit of help. If it starts to ball up on the side turn it off, remove the lid and carefully separate the ball with a spatula throughout the bowl. Then lock the lid back into place and turn it back on. On occasion I’ve had to do this step a couple of times. Trust me, the juice is worth the squeeze!
Scoop and serve!
