  • Six hours or more ahead of time, combine the zinfandel, coconut sugar, and water in a small saucepan. Keeping the burner on very low heat, reduce this mixture down until it is ¾ to 1/2 cup of liquid. (This takes about one hour, but for this recipe for sorbet, is worth the wait!). Set aside to cool, and then refrigerate until cold.
  • Place the chilled wine and sugar reduction along with the 3 cups of frozen cherries and the juice of one lime.
  • For Vitamix: Start machine on Variable Speed 1, turn machine on and increase to Variable Speed 2 for five seconds, Variable 3 for 5 seconds, then slowly increase to Variable Speed 10/High for about one minute. Use the tamper to push the ingredients into the blades.
  • For Blendtec: Press the ICE CREAM cycle OR blend on a LOW Speed for 15 seconds, then blend on a MEDIUM to MEDIUM-HIGH Speed for about 30 seconds.
  • Serve up immediately, freezing the leftovers…if there ARE any leftovers!
  • All done! Enjoy!! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments to enter our weekly photo contest! :) Tag @BlenderBabes & #BlenderBabes
