Thermomix: Frozen Fruit Sorbet

P1020229This is a quick little post on how to make a frozen fruit sorbet. It requires a Thermomix, so it might not work in a food processor or blender. The recipe is originally called Fruity Dream and can be found in Thermomix’s book- The Basic Cookbook (on p.292).

This sorbet is extremely simple to make since the Thermomix does all the work for you.  It’s important that you use frozen fruit!!! I like to use frozen raspberries; but you can use frozen blueberries, strawberries, bananas, peaches or mangoes – the possibilities are endless. You’ll be amazed at how creamy and smooth this sorbet is so I recommend you give it a go (sorry if you don’t have a Thermomix).

Frozen Fruit Sorbet

Makes approximately 1L of sorbet. 

Ingredients
  • 500g seasonal fruit of choice (e.g. raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, bananas, mangoes, peaches) frozen.
  • *80g caster sugar (see notes)
  • 1 egg white
Method
  1. Place sugar into mixing bowl and mill 10sec/speed 9.
  2. Add fruit and chop 10sec/speed 8. Scrape down sides and bottom of mixing bowl with spatula to loosen mixture. Transfer mixture into another bowl.
  3. Insert butterfly whisk. Return mixture to Thermomix and add egg white.
    Mix 30-40sec/speed 3 or until a smooth and soft consistency is achieved.
  4. Serve immediately or place into the freezer in a freezable container to store.

*Notes:
If you’re using a sweeter fruit such as blueberries – reduce the sugar to 60g. If you’re using a more sour fruit such as raspberries – 80g of sugar is enough.
