Today I propose two iced recipes, a homemade sorbet and chocolate palets, to enjoy to cool off when the temperature rises a little too much!
Making homemade ice cream requires a bit of preparation upstream, but it's definitely worth it. Personally, I do not add sugar at all to have the taste of fruit. Although we recently bought a ice cream maker, I find it easier to make sorbets with a juicer. Just freeze the fruit one night and you're done!
For the icy pallets, I initially completely improvised and seeing that I was getting the desired result, I continued!
Recipe from my homemade cherry ice cream:
Roll of the recipe:
- Wash the cherries and cut them in half, pitting them at the same time. Freeze for about 24 hours.
- Remove the cherries from the freezer and transfer them to the juicer – or to the blender if you don't have a juicer. Mix the mixed cherries vigorously with a wooden spoon. Leave the mixture for about half an hour at room temperature.
- Once the cherries have been slightly thawed, add the mascarpone, at a rate of one tablespoon of mascarpone for 100g of fruit. Mix again vigorously with a manual or electric whisk.
- Once the cherry-mascarpone mixture is well homogeneous, put it all in a freezer box for a few hours and enjoy!
This recipe can be easily declined with all types of fruit, and even fruit blends. You can also add a little icing sugar in step 3 if the mixture seems too acidic. Mascarpone can also be replaced with homemade whipped cream for a less firm texture.
Recipe of my chocolate and ginger iced pallets:
– pastry chocolate
– coconut oil
– root ginger
– coarse salt
Roll of the recipe:
- Melt chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler, or over very low heat.
- Divide melted chocolate among macaroon moulds.
- Finely slice the ginger and sprinkle over the chocolate pallets, as well as the coarse salt.
- Gently place the pan in the freezer for about an hour, then immediately taste the removal!
These pallets can be embellished with almost anything you want! Roasted sesame seeds, dried fruit, a few drops of homemade caramel, different nuts, spices… It's up to everyone to do what their imagination inspires them to do.
I advise on the other hand to make several "furnaces" of pallets, because these leave quickly!
I hope you like these recipes, feel free to comment on the results of your "inventions". 🙂
See you again
