It was a lovely warm day in Hobart today so I made up a lovely batch of our favourite sorbet. Tasty, refreshing and wonderfully good for you. Promise you won't know it has a bunch of greens in it...promise!! If you have a blender that copes well with ice you can make this too...use the maximum speed.
Ingredients
  • 50g - 150g sugar (we have as little sugar in this as possible but it depends on the fruit and your taste buds) - or you could use honey, maple syrup or rice malt syrup.
  • 1 lemon, with peel and pith removed
  • 1 orange, with peel and pith removed
  • Fresh pineapple, enough to bring the weight of the fruit up to 300g
  • 2 cm length of ginger - optional
  • Handful of washed baby spinach, or green of your choice (make it a small handful if you're just starting out with greens in your sorbet.
  • 700g ice cubes (separated into two batches) - or frozen cubes of coconut water
  • 1 egg white, optional (it adds volume and makes the texture fluffy and smooth)
Instructions
  1. Place sugar in the TM bowl and mill for 10 secs on speed 9 (if using liquid sweetener add with the fruit).
  2. Add the fruit, ginger (if using) and 350g of the ice. Slowly increase speed to 10 and blend for 20 seconds.
  3. Add the rest of the ice and the egg white and slowly increase the speed to 10 and blend for approximately 1 min. You may need to assist with the spatula.
  4. Freezes well but may need re-blending to serve.
Notes
We call this Shrek sorbet if little ones are around and they love it!

  1. That green sorbet looks freshalicious! With all this hot and humid weather, I’m always looking for more super ways with sorbet! I’ve just started chucking some spinach into my juices so will definitely give this a go. My current favourite flavour is orange and mango, really refreshing!
