Right, since you all know I'm a food nut (or if you didn't, you do now), you'll also know that I watch the food network constantly. Religiously. The food network is practically my god.
So I was watching Christine Cushing live, and the theme of the day was cocoa! She made this awesome looking sorbet, so I thought I'd share! Dairy free!
1/2 cup cocoa powder, sifted (125 ml) 1 cup water (250 ml) 2/3 cup granulated sugar (150 ml) 1 tsp Frangelico (5 ml) Squeeze of ½ lime
Make a simple syrup by adding sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat until sugar dissolves completely. Add the cocoa to warm syrup. Whisk to incorporate and dissolve cocoa. Add Frangelico and a squeeze of lime juice. Stir to combine. Cool completely. Process the mixture in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer to freezer to set completely.
