The heatwave is back and what better way to cool down than with some delicious, homemade sorbet. Sorbets are not only a tasty and healthier alternative to ice-cream, but are easy to make too!

What you’ll need:

  • 175g granulated sugar
  • 250ml water
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • 2-3  mangos

What you’ll need to do:

  1. Place the sugar in a pan with the water. Heat gently until the sugar has dissolved, then boil for one minute until the mixture is slightly syrupy. Pour into a bowl, add the lemon juice then cool.
  2. Squeeze the juice from mangos in a blender and the juice to the lemon mixture. Pour the mixture into a shallow container and put in the freezer.
  3. After two hours take out and break up the ice crystals with a fork, then return to the freezer for another two hours.
  4. Continue to break up the ice every hour until the mixture is firm. Move the container to the fridge 30 minutes before serving.
