Earth Day Sorbet

This Earth Day-friendly sorbet checks many boxes when it comes to supporting Mother Earth, like limiting food waste and using sustainable ingredients. Using the entire kiwi (including the peel!) allows for zero-waste, and repurposing the orange rinds for biodegradable bowls makes for an earth-friendly vessel to serve your treat in. Leaning on locally sourced raw honey is a sustainable choice that adds natural sweetness. This sorbet can be used with most fruit that is on the brink of spoiling, giving you a way to enjoy your produce without wasting it.

TIP: If you don’t have kiwis on-hand, substitute one cup of berries for a satisfying sorbet. If you are choosing strawberries as an ingredient, remember that the green top is edible, so toss the entire berry into the blender and avoid encountering any food waste.
