This 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.
- 500g seasonal fruit of choice (e.g. raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, bananas, mangoes, peaches) frozen.
- *80g caster sugar (see notes)
- 1 egg white
- Place sugar into mixing bowl and mill 10sec/speed 9.
- 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.
- 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.
- Serve immediately or place into the freezer in a freezable container to store.
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.
