Easy. Vegan. Sorbet. For. Real.

So this is my entry for the You Scream, I Scream, We All Scream for Frozen Desserts blogging event. What do you think?

This sorbet is - believe or not - absolutely vegan & absolutely delicious. Serves two.

  • 3 frozen bananas
  • 2¼ tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2½ T pistachios, shelled
  • 1-5 dried black mission figs

Get out your juicer or heavy-duty blender, such as a Vitamix. (I have a Champion Juicer.) Put the bananas into your juicer or blender and juice or blend them until they have the consistency of soft-serve ice cream. Stir in the vanilla and set aside. Get out your food processor and finely chop the pistachios. Stir them into the sorbet. Freeze for 15-30 minutes. Serve with dried figs, as many as few as you desire.



Hi Katie,
Welcome to the world of food blogging! Thanks for the comments on my site, much appreciated. I am really enjoying writing recipes, taking photos and reviewing restaurants. I have live in California my whole life, so I'm a bit biased, but I love it here. We've got it all, beaches, deserts, mountains, great food! ;)
Keep up the good work on the blog. I find just reaching out to other bloggers via comments and adding others to your blog roll is a big step in getting people to know about you! Good luck, keep visiting and I will too.

Wow, for fourteen years old, you've got it going on! (Liked your answer, "Who needs a smelly potion?").

The vegan banana pistachio sorbet sounds awesome. I'd been wondering what else I could do with pistachios... I love the color... they're so Green!

Oh, thanks for the comment on my blog, too.

Oh, about what we all do out here in California...
I think there's quite a few of us who sometimes take California for granted... We have such great spots to visit, that tourists travel so far to come see... And here we sit in our homes, thinking of taking some far-away trip!
So I try to remind myself that we have so much right at our back door.
So, yes, we do take trips, like to the beaches by San Francisco, cable cars, Golden Gate Park and all... it's only 20 minutes or so away. We ought to appreciate it, right? I can imagine there's not too much to see in Kansas, with all the flat land... Ah, but you can dream :)


YUM! That looks so good! MY dad lives in Cheswick, my mom lives in Tarentum, I used to live in Baldwin/West Mifflin, and my sister lives in Oakland. We're pretty spread out accross the greater Pittsburgh area! Your blog looks great!


Hi Katie! I'm so glad you like my blog =] The ice cream looks delish and so easy! I remember when I was 14 and all I ate was junk, good for you for trying out vegan and vegetarian food.


Aw, thank you so much! I feel so lucky to have such a supportive first they were nervous that I wouldn't be getting adequate nutrition, but then I showed them all of the great meals I could prepare! :0) I hope your family does the same, if and when you choose to make the transition! Your blog is gorgeous, girl...what type of camera do you use?
PS...Do you mind if I add you to my blogroll?


What do I think?

I think I'm going to move in to your house so you can make that for me all the time!


This looks amazing. period. Definitely trying this one out! Thanks for your comment. Starting a biz is a slow process. I've got a lot going on so it has been great for me-- starting as a hobby and gradually growing. Networking like this and around your neighborhood is a great start- support from friends and fam is extremely helpful. Good luck!!

That looks delicious! Some beautiful photos on your site. Thanks for saying hello!


Oh, this sounds heavenly. And no need for an ice-cream maker. Great!


This looks and sounds delicious- I am impressed. You seem to be off to a great start with your blog.
I also noticed in your profile that you'd like to "travel the world." I've done quite a bit of world travel since college (Asia, Europe, Central America), so if you ever have any questions about places you'd like to go, feel free to send me a note.
