Sweet Treats with Shrubs
Everyone deserves a little sweetness once in a while – or all the time!
Shrubs can be the perfect sweetener to your daily cup of life, and you don’t even need to feel guilty or indulgent. Our shrubs are made with 100% organic ingredients and apple cider vinegar with the mother. Good news: that means shrubs are healthy, and so are these sweet treats!
No matter the weather outside, any time is ice cream time – or for this recipe, sherbet time! Combine 2 cups frozen strawberries with 2/3 cup Strawberry Lemon Thyme Shrub in a food processor. Once pureed to perfection, pour in 2/3 cup of cold milk while the machine is still running. We recommend serving this sherbet immediately, but you won’t want to wait around to taste it, anyway!
Cranberry Sauce Cheesecake Topping
Our Cranberry Sauce isn’t just for Thanksgiving dinner – it makes the perfect topping for a slice of cheesecake! Combine 2 cups Cranberry Mint Shrub, 12 oz fresh cranberries, 1 tbs grated orange zest, and 2 tbs orange juice in a saucepan. Bring everything to a boil for just 10 minutes, then let cool and refrigerate. Once your cranberry sauce is cooled to desired cheesecake-temperature, pour a spoonful – or three – over your favorite slice of cheesecake.
Banana Rice Pudding
This tasty rice pudding is just bananas – but only if our Banana Turmeric Shrub is a main ingredient! In a large sauce pot, combine 1 cup shrub, 1 cup risotto, 2 cups coconut milk, 2 cups water, 2 tbs sugar, and a pinch of salt. Bring to a light simmer and cover, then cook for about 20-30 minutes. Be sure to stir frequently to avoid scorching that beautiful mixture! Once cooked, chill overnight and top with toasted coconut, nuts, or dried fruit.
If that Strawberry Sherbet recipe sounded good to you, surprise! There’s another way to use our sherbet, and it involves Prosecco. Place a scoop of that tasty Strawberry Sherbet into a champagne flute, then add in a bit of chilled vodka. Finally, fill the rest of your glass with some frosty Prosecco! It’s the perfect sweet treat in liquid form.
