    i love kiwi & sorbet. looks refreshing & this would be a big hit here! but we don’t have an ice-cream maker *boo hiss* but maybe i can find one on sale end of season — or better yet, @ a garage sale!

    Oh yes, that would be great if you could find one at a garage or estate sale 🙂 You’d definitely love having one. I actually bought mine new at Sam’s Club several years ago. It came with an extra freezer bowl and cost around $50. It’s the typical Cuisinart one.

    Again, I am glad you liked it! The idea for it just came to me in a flash.

    You could probably make it without an ice cream maker if you had time to stir it occasionally while it is freezing.

    Hey, lookin’ GOOD!! I love the little kiwi seeds in there… just in case there was any confusion on what fruit was used to make such a lovely, lovely sorbet. YUMMY!! Way to make a yummy treat there, Vegan Diva!

    Hey, I thought I would just let yall know of a way of making sorbets w/o an icecream maker. I have not tested it (actually, I have one going right now), but it sounds like it’d do the trick.
    “Pour into container, cover, and place mixture in the freezer. When it is semi-solid, mash it up with a fork and refreeze again. When frozen, place in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Cover and refreeze until serving time.”
    I found these directions here.

    Just thought I’d give an update; I followed those directions as close as I could (I mashed it up twice, because I realised the first time I did it, it wasn’t really hard enough), and man, it turned out great! Right after blending up the frozen sorbet, it was a little too mushy, but after an hour or two in the freezer; delicious! I do not have an ice cream maker to compare this to, but rest assured, if you don’t own an ice cream maker, you can still make delicious sorbets! (note: I only had four kiwis, so I just cut all the proportions in half for the recipie, and followed the directions on the site I posted above [the strawberry sorbet directions], eg., boiling the syrup, then reducing heat and simmering the syrup for five minutes). Good luck making your own sorbets!

    Gosh, I have stop posting! Anywho, a clarification to my last post; I used the ingredients of the recipe posted by vegandiva, but the directions from the site I posted. That is, I didn’t use any vodka, though it would be nice to try next time, because after the sorbet refreezes (more than a couple of hours after blending it up), it becomes too hard/frozen, in my opinion. Viel Glück!

    Hi Muschtacio, I’m glad you were able to make the kiwi sorbet without an ice cream maker. The kiwi sorbet is so good and tastes much better than anything store bought 🙂
