This cool vegan Cucumber Mint Sorbet is light and refreshing. Perfect for a hot Summer day!
Let's just get this straight right off the bat. I am a chocolate lover. It is my go-to dessert. I love rich, dark chocolate - the darker the better in most cases.
I really couldn't care less about all the other desserts out there unless I am struck over the head and forced to eat it. Just kidding. Well, sort of.
So, I must have been struck over the head recently because here we have a Cucumber Mint Sorbet. What!
How did that get here? Oh, I remember now, it was because I went to Market on the Move, where they give you up to 60 lbs. of produce for a measly $10 donation. I happened to walk away with 70 or so cucumbers.
So I was off to the races creating cucumber recipes.
This vegan sorbet is light and refreshing. If you don't have an ice cream maker, like me (I mean, do I really need another gadget in my small kitchen?), then this recipe is for you.
I don't even own an ice cream scoop. Can you tell from the photograph? I hope not, I tried really hard to make it look like I scooped it with a proper scoop.
I used my hands to mold the sorbet and everything. They were freezing. Okay, so maybe you can tell by the bottom photo. It isn't as scoop-worthy as the top photo.
However you scoop it, you will love this sorbet. By adding vodka, you get a softer, smoother consistency and it is less icy.
❤️ Why You'll Love It
