sweet spot


Who doesnt like dessert? There are times when the dessert is so enticing that I will intentionally give myself a small portion of the entree so that I can get to dessert sooner.

With all the fresh fruits available right now its hard not to want to get them all and I invariably end up getting too much. My solution, sorbets and ice creams.

I had made some avocado ice cream and then I made some cantaloupe sorbet and also some wineberry sorbet. Wineberries are a fantastic berry - somewhat of a cross between a raspberry and a strawberry and they are wild!



All three were great on their own but together it was like a chamber concert of deliciousness.



The sweet creamy avocado ice cream balanced nicely with the tart wineberry sorbet and the cantaloupe sorbet danced between them both like a ballerina.

Looks amazing! The wineberry sorbet reminded of grandma. She would have strained every seed! I think it is a wonderful, diverse trio.

Jenn said...

I've never had wineberry before. Sounds awesome, if it's a cross between a raspberry and a strawberry.

I still want some of that avocado ice cream.

I made an avocado ice cream for my daughter and her friends and it was actually quite a hit! My daughter's friends all asked their moms if they could make the avocado ice cream like that for them at home :)

I would love to try the wineberry ice cream, that sounds good!

I've never heard of wineberries but they look good in the form of ice-cream!

Nutmeg Nanny said...

That wineberry sorbet looks awesome! Do you deliver ice cream...or wineberries:)

Diana H said...

I've been thinking about ice cream makers, do you use one?

Momma Cupcake said...

I had the same feeling about avocado ice cream too snugs until I made it myself. It's awesomeness! This is trio of tantalizing tasties Mr. Gonzales! I wish you'd enter my dessert wars contest...we need some testosterone over there.
