Hot and Healthy

I’m just like you….busy, busy, busy.  I don’t have time to make six trips to the grocery store in one week because I forgot this item or that item.  That’s why I love the Copps and Pick N Save website so much.  It gives me recipe ideas I can make for the week and a place where I can create my own grocery list of the things I’ll need for those recipes.  All I do is print it out and I’m sure not to forget anything.  Here’s an easy recipe that I’m excited to try this weekend.  I’m having a little fire pit party and this will be great for dessert.  For more recipes and the handy shopping list click here.

Strawberry-Banana Sorbet

1 whole banana
3 cups frozen strawberries, cut into equal pieces
½ cup frozen cranberry juice cocktail from concentrate
1-2 tablespoons honey


Peel the banana and wrap it in plastic.  Freeze for at least 1-1/2 hours until solid
Place strawberries in a food processor.  Process with on/off pulses until finely chopped; stop several times to scrape down the sides of the container.  Process the mixture for 1-2 minutes, or until smooth. 
With machine running, add the juice concentrate.  Process for 1 minute, or until completely smooth.
Slice the frozen banana.  With the machine running, slowly add the slices.  Process for at least 1 minute, or until the mixture is smooth and creamy.  Sweeten to taste with honey; process briefly. 
Serve immediately or transfer to a chilled storage container and freeze for 30 minutes
