Wild blueberries have a deeper flavour and sweetness than the regular version, and are perfect in this sherbet, free of refined sugar. Adjust the amount of dates to sweeten to your taste, depending on the ripeness of the blueberries.
Wild Blueberry Soft-Serve Sherbet
1/2 to 3/4 cup pitted honey dates, packed
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups wild blueberries (fresh or frozen)
2 cups unsweetened nondairy milk, preferably coconut milk beverage
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Place the dates in the bowl of a food processor. Let soak 15 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth.
Refrigerate until chilled, at least one hour. Transfer the mixture to your ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Serve immediately. (If you freeze the remainder, let it sit at room temperature for about 15 to 30 minutes before serving).
