|Avocado berry sorbet, ACD-friendly
I decided to do some digging on my two favorite brands, MaraNatha and SunButter. Both brands listed nothing but sunflower seeds and salt on the ingredients' labels. I wanted to make doubly sure so I contacted both companies to verify that there weren't some hidden ingredients. In both cases, I was told the products do not contain starch. I purchase the unsweetened sunbutter.
You never can be too careful, especially when you have a chronic problem, like candida, food sensitivities or digestive issues. If you are unsure of your brand, simply contact the company or make your own. Here is my recipe for homemade sunbutter:
|Finally, a sorbet I can eat!
It's finally warm enough to start craving something cool, creamy and frozen, like sorbet, ACD-style, and made with avocado, berries and pear. There is no need for an ice cream freezer with this sorbet as long as you use frozen fruit.
Here's what your need for 4 small servings or two generous ones:
ACD-phase 2, 3, maintenance
Flesh of one avocado
1 cup frozen berries of your choice (I used blackberries.)
1 frozen Bartlett pear (no need to peel)
1 cup vegan or other plain yogurt
Optional: 1 T. sunbutter or other seed or nut butter, unsweetened and starch-free
Topping: 1 T. melted coconut butter
Here's what you do:
Put everything into a food processor and blend until smooth, creamy and deliciously frozen. To serve, top with some additional berries and a drizzle of melted coconut butter. Note: For a Phase 1 version, omit the pear and use unsweetened coconut milk in place of yogurt.
