Cucumber Banana Sorbet with coconut

My lovely neighbor created her own improvised garden. She is growing squash, pumpkins, amazingly yummy cherry tomatoes, basil, and cucumbers. Well, lots of cucumbers–not only did the plant flourish–it produced over 5 times the projected number of cucumbers, and is still going. Long story short, after my friend was tired of making pickles, cucumber salads, cucumber water, cucumber ice cream, cucumber…….she gave some of the delicious, all natural goodness away to me. In fact, I now have tons of it. And aside from the usual salads, I made myself a very simple, easy to prepare summer treat, which also turned out to be fun and delicious: cucumber banana sorbet.

There’s nothing to it, really. I pureed 4 cucumbers with 1 banana, a little bit of cocoa, a tiny bit of simple syrup (really no more than a spoonful), and sprinkled some coconut just because I love the flavor. Froze the puree for about 1 hour and…voila! So refreshing yummy!

Enjoy 🙂
