While it’s not quite summer yet, I thought I’d get into the summer mood with a bit of sorbet. Super low in calories and fat – it is pretty much 100% fruit after all – this makes a great, light, refreshing dessert or snack. If the fruit you have is very sweet and ripe you can even skip the sugar completely. You have to be patient while it’s freezing, but it’s definitely worth it![/learn_more]
– 1 Mango
– 1 punnet fresh Strawberries (around 15 medium Strawberries)
– 3 tbsps Sugar
– 2 decilitres Water
You’ll also need
A Food Processor
- Start by washing the strawberries and trimming the stalks/leaves away from the top. Peel the mango and cut the flesh away from the stone using a sharp knife. Cut the mango into smaller chunks, about the same size as the strawberries.
- Place everything into the Food Processor, add the water and the sugar and blend on high speed until smooth and any lumps have disappeared.
- Place mixture into a plastic, or other freezer-proof, container. Cover and put in the freezer. Remove from the freezer about once every hour and stir well using a fork to ensure even freezing – Be sure to remove the frozen parts from the edge of the container and mix with the mix in the centre.
- After around 4 hours in the freezer the sorbet should have reached a good consistency to eat like ice-cream. Scoop out into bowls and serve on its own or as an accompaniment to some pie or something similar, and enjoy!
