Strawberry Basil Coconut Sorbet

Print

Here’s a cool and refreshing recipe to help you deal with the hot days of summer. Strawberries are about to go out of season for a few months, but you still have a few more weeks to enjoy them!

I usually think of basil as a savory ingredient, but was surprised at how delicious it was with the sweet strawberry flavor! It adds an interesting kick, as well as some phytonutrients that help fight inflammation. Basil is definitely a superfood, and I think it makes dishes taste really refreshing and light. You’ll be surprised at how well it accents the sweeter flavors of this dish!

 

Further Food Commentary:

In need of a sweet treat? Look no further than Tiffany's Paleo Strawberry Basil Coconut Sorbet. Strawberries are one of the best sources of vitamin C which contain powerful antioxidants. These antioxidants help to boost your immune system, promote eye health and fight certain cancers. Basil contains many essential oils such as eugenol and citral which are known for anti-inflammatory properties. It is also stacked with vitamin A and K which help fight free radicals and strengthen bones respectively.
