Peach Sorbet with a Cacao Shell

Being as it is near a hundred degrees outside with over 80% humidity it is understandable that this peach sorbet didn't even make it all the way out my front door before it started melting into [delicious] juice. So it made for a crap picture but it tasted good. So I could make it again and try to get the perfect shot to post on here, but I am all for keeping it real and this is what my sorbet looked like when I ate it, therefore this is what you get to see. If you want something pretty to look at then Google "beautiful food." Anywho, this is mildly sweet yet refreshingly energizing.


1 peach (pit out, of course)
1/4 cup grapes
2 cups ice

1 tsp coconut oil
1 tsp coconut butter
3/4 tsp cacao powder
2 tsp honey


For the Sorbet:
In the above order, add ingredients to Vitamix blender. Start on speed 1, increase to 10, then turn on high. Let blend for about 3 minutes, using tamper to press ice into blades. It should for 4 mounds overtop of where the blades are and that's when you know it's officially done.

For the Shell:
Combine coconut oil and coconut butter until smooth, pressing the coconut butter into the oil with the back of a spoon if necessary. Then add cacao powder and honey, mix well.

Pour the cacao mix over the sorbet in a bowl or dish. The coconut oil and butter will naturally harden almost instantly. Enjoy!
