Simple Berry Sorbet
Another “go-to” recipe. This is my adaptation of a recipe that I found in an old French Thermomix book, “á table avec Thermomix”. While it was obviously developed for the Thermomix, it can also be made successfully using a food processor.
Keyword: Berries, Ice Cream
Quantity: 2 cups
- 250 g frozen berries
- 40 g icing sugar
- 1 small egg white
Add the icing sugar and fruits to the bowl of your processor or Thermomix.
Blitz 3 to 6 times on high speed (TM TURBO).
Add the egg white and mix for 1 minute and 30 seconds. (TM SPEED 5).
If your food processor has a whisk attachment, you may like to use it for this step. It just makes the texture a little creamier. (If using the Thermomix, insert the butterfly whisk and mix (TM – SPEED 3/ 1 Minute).
Scrape the mixture into a container, cover and place into the freezer until ready to use.
- I have successfully halved the ingredients, without affecting the quality of the sorbet.
- The only thing I really dislike about this sorbet is the seeds of the berries. When I have the time, I gently simmer the berries for five minutes, then pass the mix through a sieve. The puree is then poured into an iceblox tray and frozen and used as for fresh berries.
- Try using pieces of diced fruit to make this sorbet. Rock Melon/Cantelope makes for a delicious refreshing sorbet.
