Tips and Suggestions
You can make any flavoured fruit sorbet that you wish, you just need to freeze 120g of the fruit.
Why not try:
Mango sorbet topped with chopped pistachio nuts and a drizzle of honey over the top.
Red grape sorbet with a drop of dessert wine.
Pineapple sorbet with 1/4 teaspoon vanilla seeds and a bit of finely chopped chilli added before you blend.
Strawberry sorbet blended with a little drizzle of coconut milk or orange juice. Add 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla seeds or rose water for added flavour and fold a few spoonfuls of icing sugar through, if needed.
Cherry sorbet with vanilla seeds or a drop of brandy.
1. Pop your chosen chopped fruit into separate plastic tubs and freeze depending on the fruit, this can take 4-6 hours.
2. Break up or chop the frozen pieces if theyre stuck together. Tip into a food-processor or blender and blitz until all the fruit is chopped up and the mixture starts to come together into an icy, smooth, creamy paste. Youll have to process it for a good bit. As you do, the fruit will start to melt a little bit, which helps the fruit come together and gives it a softer, creamier texture.
3. Serve immediately.
