The sorbet is an ideal refreshment for these hot days. Get depressing (at least for a while) our body temperature, keeps us hydrated and also is a very light product, since for the most part is water .
But not everything can be advantages, I must inform you that also gives us a lot of sugar, too . Not suitable for dessert every day, but to take it from time to time, on the occasions when the heat and need to tighten cool.
And I also forget to say is incredible! Want to know more about the straw? Want to see some recipes to prepare at home?
The sorbet is located halfway between the slush and ice , this is a frozen dessert which contains no egg yolk or fat (hence its texture is more liquid).
It consists essentially of water (about 85%), making it ideal for dieters who want a drink. Do not add fat or cholesterol and is low in calories.
The straw also contains at least 15% fruit, so it brings many more vitamins than any other ice cream or polo. Of course, this does not exempt you from eating your five servings of fruit daily, but provides a supplement better than other soft drinks.
But as I said before, not all virtues. The amount of sugar in this dessert is excessive and therefore not suitable for diabetics or for people with high triglycerides. For healthy people, we must not abuse, but combine it with other less sugary drinks .
Make the sorbet at home is easy, because you can do at any time and with all kinds of fruit (and even including other ingredients such as tomatoes or coconut milk!). After you are saved and can be eaten any time of day.
In addition, replacing sugar with saccharin or aspartame, we can make the granita and sorbet also suitable for diabetics.
