Champagne & blueberry sorbet - no churn, 3 ingredients

  • SHARE
Sweetie darling, have some of this absolutely lush blueberry & champagne sorbet, you know you deserve it. When you are too busy with your fabulous life then this vegan sorbet is perfect for you. Only three ingredients, no churning, no hassle and you might as well enjoy a glass of champagne or two in the process. Could life get any better?


I came up with the idea for this sorbet when I put a bottle of champagne into the freezer to chill it down quickly. I forgot about it and only took it out hours later when it was almost frozen. When I popped the cork the bubbly had turned into slush. Basically the alcohol and bubbles prevented it from turning it into a solid block of ice. So I thought it would taste amazingly refreshing with fruits like blueberries and a bit of sugar.



I experimented with the concentration of alcohol and berries and voila, an extreme simple and delicious sorbet was born. The good thing about this dessert is that you get a slight taste of champagne without it tasting overly alcoholic due to it being frozen and the high fruit concentration. Of course you can use Prosecco, Cava or any other sparkling wine.


This champagne and blueberry sorbet is super refreshing and a perfect 'trou normand' between courses (excuse my French, it basically means palate cleanser). Or indulge in this refreshing sorbet anytime you want to treat yourself. Cheers darling!

METHOD:


Darling, open a nicely chilled bottle of champagne (prosecco or cava, anything as long as it bubbles), pour it into a glass and have a sip. You know you deserve it!


When you feel the stress of the day is easing put the blueberries into a blender with 2tsp of icing sugar and a glass of champagne (100ml roughly). Blend for 20-30 seconds or until smooth (the longer you blend the richer the colour gets but also the bubbles disappear and the sorbet might become too hard, so there is a balance to strike). Taste and if you feel it needs to be sweeter then add some more sugar (depending on how ripe the blueberries are).


Put it into the freezer while you continue living your fabulous life. This sorbet is best served after 4-5 hours in the freezer. It will be nicely frozen but soft enough to serve easily. If you freeze for longer than that it might become quite hard. In this case leave it out for 10+ minutes or so for it to soften again.


Serve with a blueberry and an optional mint leaf on top. for the wow factor. Enjoy!


And if you love ice cream and need something without alcohol try my cotton candy strawberry ice cream. Again, only 3 ingredients and no churning required. Also perfect for kids.

I've been looking forward to making something vegan for Halloween for ages! And I brainstormed (pardon the pun) over and over again until I came up with the idea to make vegan brain cupcakes. It was so much fun, they tasted amazing and will definitely a talking point at any party they are served.

Vegan apple strudel with vegan home-made custard

Coming from Austria I also share a big fondness for the former emperor's favourite dessert, Viennese apple strudel. In Austria we have it on it's own but here in England they serve it with custard which is a heavenly combination. So I came up with a vegan apple strudel version and a delicious and easy home-made vegan custard. From preparations to finish this dessert can be made within 30 minutes! What are you waiting for?
