Prep Time: 15 min Total Time: 15 min Serves 1
2 Granny Smith apples, divided
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
1 tablespoon white sugar
1/3 cup apples juice
1 drop green food coloring, optional
Strawberry Fan for garnish
Mint sprig for garnish
Peel, cut and core one green apple, cut into chunks, place in saucepan along with 5 teaspoons lemon juice, sugar and apple juice. Cook over medium heat approximately 3 to 5 minutes or until soft; cool; puree in food processor until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl, stir in food coloring if needed and freeze.
Puree again in food processor and return to freezer.
When ready to serve, cut the top off the remaining apple approximately 1/2-inch, set it aside for the garnish. Hollow out inside of apple with a melon baller leaving a 1/4-inch wall. Sprinkle remaining 1 teaspoon lemon juice on the cut top and inside the shell to keep from turning brown. Fill apple cavity with the frozen sorbet mixture. Lean the apple top against the shell; garnish with a mint sprig, strawberry fan and serve.
