Now that summer and barbecue season is upon us, it's nice to have some summery desserts. I found this recipe in an old Slimming World magazine; it's really easy to make and you don't need an ice cream maker or anything like that - just a blender. It's also much lower calorie than most ice creams and sorbets!
To serve 4-6 depending on portion size (you could serve this as a small palette cleanser at the end of a meal) you need:
6 kiwis, peeled and chopped
zest and juice of 1 lime
2 tbsp. sweetener eg Splenda
1 tsp ground ginger
The recipe also says to use a piece of stem ginger in syrup, drained and chopped; I didn't have any so left it out. The flavour was still fine and it makes it even lower in calories and syns - the recipe says 3 syns per portion but without the stem ginger I'm not sure it actually has any.
Put all the ingredients into a blender, add 300ml water and blend until smooth.
Pour into a shallow container with a lid that can go in the freezer, put the lid on and freeze for about 5 hours or until set.
Either return the sorbet to the blender and whiz until smooth, or use a fork to mix around and break up the ice crystals. Then it is ready to serve.
I am sharing this with Bloggers Scream for Ice Cream, hosted by Kavey Eats, as the theme this month is sorbets and granitas.
