As I mentioned in my first Xyloburst article, I love sweets but I cannot eat them as much anymore due to a high sensitivity. Last year I was introduced to Xyloburst a company that sells amazing sugar alternatives like the Coconut sugar that we used to make the cookie bombs from this post. This week we used Xylitol sugar by Xyloburst to make sherbet! We are so new to using alternative sugars so we were not sure if this would turn out delicious but thankfully it was so good. But before I show you the recipe lets learn why xyletol is one of the best sugar alternatives.
Why Xylitol Is A Great Sugar Alternative:
- Low-Calorie Sweetener
- Allergen Free
- Same taste as sugar
- Gluten Free
- 40% fewer calories than sugar
A natural sweetener that is great for those on a sugar controlled or low carb diet. XyloBurst xylitol is all-natural and has 40% fewer calories and 75% fewer carbohydrates than sugar. Making it great for everyone, Xyloburst xylitol also does not cause tooth decay which is a plus for parents looking for sugar alternatives for their children or even themselves.
For me personally I love to use Xyloburst xylitol sugar to bake and create fun things like todays recipe. What I like to call Sweet Tart Freeze also known as sherbet. You can use an ice cream machine to blend this but we don’t have one so we used our dessert bullet which works just as good. The texture was soft and oh so delicious. I mean take a look for yourself.
Xyloburst Xylitol Sweet Tart Freeze Ingredients:
- 1 1/4 cup Xyloburst Xylitol Sugar
- 1 1/4 cup Water
- 2 1/2 cup Strawberries
- 2 1/2 cup peaches
- Play the Xyloburst xylitol sugar and water in a medium sauce pan and dissolve over low heat. Once xylitol sweetener is completely dissolved, remove from heat and allow to cool.
- In a blender, puree strawberries and peaches until smooth. Add Xyloburst xylitol mixture then pulse to mix.
- Freeze in an ice cube tray.
- Once mixture is slightly frozen add cubes to dessert bullet and serve with a mint leaf for garnish.
My sister was so nervous this wouldn’t turn out correctly due to not using an ice cream maker and using a sugar alternative but thankfully everything turned out perfectly. Please enjoy this treat with your family and friends and be sure to come back here and tell me what fruits you used to create this recipe.
