I was checking my email the other day and I came across an article on the most eco friendly ice cream for the summer. I LOVE ice cream so I was stoked to learn about new flavors and such. But when I read the full article it was nothing but different brands of pre-made store bought stuff. Isn’t the most eco friendly frosty treat one that you make yourself? No packaging to pitch, no big trucks have to bring it to you, no additives that you don’t approve of…etc. You control it.
I don’t have an ice cream recipe today but I do have a refreshing sorbetto to share.
Pomegranate Champagne Sorbetto
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
- 1 cup champagne, chilled
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
In a medium sauce pan, combine the water and sugar. Place over medium-high heat and bring to a boil, whisking often to dissolve the sugar. Reduce the heat to medium-low an whisk until sugar is completely dissolved. Turn off the heat and let the liquid cool. Cover and refrigerate until cool. About an hour. Now you have simple syrup.
In a large bowl whisk together the pom juice, champagne, simple syrup and lemon juice. Churn in an ice cream machine. At this point you will be following the directions of your particular machine. Transfer to an air tight container and freeze for at least two hours before serving.
