Kiwi, mint and lime sorbet - a taste sensation!

Kiwi, mint and lime sorbet

A taste-bud tingling triumph! For me, this kiwi, mint and lime sorbet is one of the tastiest things I've ever made - it tastes like a mojito in sorbet form!

I had two punnets of #SOS kiwis - one knocked down from £1 to 45p and the other from £1 to 35p (bought on different days!). Perfect to try out this recipe I spotted in the September issue of Olive magazine.

160g of golden caster sugar
10-12 kiwi fruits
Juice of one lime
Handful of fresh mint leaves
260ml water

1) Put the caster sugar in a saucepan with the water. Stir until dissolved over a low heat, then turn the heat to high and boil for three minutes. Set aside to cool completely.
2) Top, tail and peel the kiwis. Cut the flesh away from the white core - discard the core. Puree the flesh in a blender with the sugar syrup, lime juice, mint and a pinch of sea salt.
3) Pour into an ice-cream maker and churn until frozen or pour into a container and freeze for 2-3 hours until beginning to firm up, then whisk thoroughly to break up any crystals. Repeat this whisking twice more at hourly intervals. Freeze until solid.
4) Leave to soften in the fridge for 20 minutes before serving.

Absolutely delicious! And the good news is that I've bought three more punnets of #SOS kiwis down to 35p so can make this again this week as this lot went pretty sharpish!
