I created this recipe for Waterbaby12347 who wrote a post inquiring about either freezing or dehydrating cucumbers. When I saw the post my first thought was sorbet but I had never made this before… so I meditated over what would be good together and out came a beautiful refreshing coconut cucumber sorbet! I used herbs (lemon thyme and shiso!) to jazz it up.
1/2 cup fresh meat from a thai young coconut
1/4 cup water from a thai young coconut
a little under 1/4 cup raw agave nectar
1 beautiful cucumber, pick your variety... i got mine from my garden
half a pretty n plump lemon
a handful of lemon thyme and shiso
Blend all ingredients together in a food processor, minus the lemon – squeeze that INTO the mix. PROCESS! The longer you process the more it will chop up the coconut meat. I left mine so there were TINY chunks of coconut meat in the mix.
FREEZE atleast 4 or so hours.
I used garden fresh herbs (lemon thyme and shiso!) to jazz up the mix. Other herbs that would be lovely in this include: lemon verbena, french sorrel, lime thyme, lime kefir leaf. You could also replace or add fresh squeezed lime to your mix.
