Pineapple Mint Sorbet/Sherbet !

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

Summer has started officialy in the UK and we are welcoming it with both hands and Why not ? It was long due after inches of thick snow,  and every one was waiting so eagerly. Bright warm days are here, everything looking so beautiful and clear...The sun is inviting us to just sit along the creek and watch the water go by..the world seems alive !

Layers and layers of thick warm clothes are resting now after monhs and months of dull, cold and gloomy days. Now bright, colourful and beautiful floral print skirts, dresses and tops are lighting and refreshing up our closet..and of course we can see our bare feet too :)

Do not use me without asking my owner !

With all this, this time of the year markets are flooding with so many fresh and wonderful produces, I am spoilt for choice. My fridge and work tops are overflowing so much with fruit, vegetables and herbs that we are breathing them :)

Past few days temperatures are reaching 22-26, not unbearable-oppressive-summer hot but we've found our self for reaching repeatedly for icy water, juices and frozen delights to cool off...We all love ice creams and sorbet most of the time, but sorbet gets ready very quickly and easy to fix !

So when the weather started a hitting a bit, we thought I would try my hand at making sorbet...Very easy to make, as simple as pureeing the ingredients and freezing them in your ice cream machine.

Here is an easy recipe for pineapple mint sorbet which I found here, refreshing, light and pineapple mint combo worked so well. It was a delicious dessert !

You will need :-
  • 1 pineapple large peeled, cored and chunk in large pieces
  • 8 fresh mint leaves
  • 100 ml apple juice
  • 100 g mascarpone cheese
  • Few berries to serve

Method :-
Whizz pineapple and mint to a smooth puree in a food processor.
Add apple juice and mascarpone and whizz to combine.
Pour into a ice cream maker and follow the instructions. ( I used an ice cream maker )
