Blueberry Peach Sorbet

  August 19, 2013

Our local farmer is only 10 doors down from our house and had a great selection of fresh peaches today. I bought a huge bag and it inspired me to make an old favorite. This Blueberry Peach Sorbet is a great snack for children. I always recommend involving children in the cooking process because the exposure alone will allow them explore. If you have a child that tends to be a little picky or slow to try new foods, involving them could be a great way to get them to at least “play” with the food. Also, children who cook with their parents are more likely to grow up and be comfortable in a kitchen.

My daughter, although, still under two (well for the next two months anyway) loves to help me in the kitchen. She loves to hit the blend button and watch the mixture puree. For snack tonight, I served the Sorbet and she gobbled it up and asked for more. We are ending blueberry season here in NJ, so I pulled out frozen blueberries I had frozen from earlier in the season. I did allow them to defrost first and they still made a delicious tasting sorbet.

Do your children have a favorite snack they enjoy, I’d love to hear about it!?!?
