    I just made a mango, peach and lime sorbet that was delicious! I used 3 c fresh mango & 1 cup of fresh peaches (can use frozen). Blend well. I needed to run mine through a nut bag or cheese cloth because one of my mangos was fibrous. Add about a 1 Tbl lime juice or 1-2 drops of lime vitality oil and 1/2 cup of YL’s agave. Let chill for at least an hour. Put in your ice cream maker and enjoy! This is light and refreshing!

    For an instant soft-serve ice cream/sorbet, do exactly as the recipe says except freeze the fresh pineapple first and leave out the water and add a bit of coconut cream. Blend in a high speed power blender. Another great combination is Nashi Pear, Lime and Ginger with an ice-cube tray of frozen coconut cream. 100% YUM!

    I thought that when using citrus essential oils, only glass or stainless steel should be used. If it’s diluted, like in this recipe, is it OK to use plastic popsicle molds?

      Hi Heather! There is less risk when its diluted, so it should be okay as long as you don’t let them sit too long!

    Raspberry Orange Frozen Yogurt Pops 😉

    1 cup plain yogurt (I like to use Kefir yogurt)
    1 cup raspberries
    1/2 peeled orange
    1 tbsp. agave syrup
    3 tbsp. chia seeds
    3 drops orange oil
    fresh raspberries

    Put everything in a blender
    except fresh raspberries.
    Fill popsicle molds 3/4
    full then add fresh raspberries
    and stir them in your molds.
    Finish filling your molds.
    Freeze and enjoy.
