Mocha Sorbet

Here's a delicious treat we've been noshing here at the the Disheveled house.

I make this without an ice cream maker, because I do not have one, but feel free to toss the mixed ingredients in one if you have it!

You will need:
  • 4 cups of coffee, doesn't have to be piping hot- warm enough to dissolve the sugar is fine
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder (not hot cocoa mix!)
  • a dash of salt
  • a splash of vanilla
Mix it all up until the sugar is COMPLETELY dissolved. pour into a big, kind of flat container that's safe for the freezer. I use a big , thick, rectangle food storage container. Cover. Every few hours, scrape up the mush with a fork, and mix around a bit. After about 8-12 hours (you can totally leave it to sleep or whatever, it's flexible...) you can run it through a food processor or blender to smooth it out more if you want a finer texture. Return to the freezer to firm back up a bit. Enjoy!
