Heavenly Plum Sorbet to Cool You Down on a Scorching Summer Day
Cool off on a scorching summer day with this heavenly Plum Sorbet! Whether you’re looking for something sweet, tart, or smooth, this Plum Sorbet is the perfect way to enjoy fresh plums at the peak of their season. With a stunning magenta hue, it’s a simple and delicious way to beat the heat. While the alcohol in this is optional, a small amount will help keep the sorbet from getting icy in the ice cream maker, if you plan to store it in the freezer.
There’s nothing more satisfying than cooking up a pot of plums, too. They don’t get peeled and that peel, in addition to adding spectacular flavor, gives them a color that, when churned up into Plum Sorbet, is terrific on its own, but especially shines when paired with other seasonal fruits and berries.
Plums are a tasty, nutritious and versatile fruit that offer a wealth of health benefits. Rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and dietary fiber, they can help improve digestive health, reduce the risk of certain types of cancer, and even aid in weight loss. Plums also contain powerful antioxidants that can fight off free radicals and help slow down the aging process.
For those looking to boost their vitamin C intake, plums are a great option. They are a good source of this essential nutrient and provide about 20% of the daily recommended intake for an average adult. Vitamin C is important for immune health, eye health, and can even help reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Plums are also an excellent source of dietary fiber. A single plum provides about 7% of the daily recommended intake of dietary fiber for an average adult. Dietary fiber helps keep us regular by improving digestion, preventing constipation, and reducing blood sugar levels. It can also help reduce cholesterol levels and may even be beneficial in the prevention of certain types of cancer.
In addition to their nutritional benefits, plum sorbet is low in calories and high in water content. This makes them a great choice for those looking to maintain or even lose weight. Plus, they’re an incredibly delicious way to satisfy your sweet tooth without consuming too many calories.
So if you’re looking to get the most out of your next snack or meal, be sure to add some plums! With all the health benefits they offer, you really can’t go wrong.Print
