Today's nutritious recipe from Kinder Kitchen - lemon and mango sorbet

I love ice cream, and as a result, so do my children. I have now started making sorbet and can't believe how long it has taken me to learn as it is really quite easy. Making your own is great as you can control what goes into it and your children get something nutritious too.

Lemon and mango sorbet

3 very ripe mangoes (The Indian ones you get from a Turkish/Indian shop are the my favourite)
175g sugar
175ml water
Juice of 1 &1/2 lemons

1. Place the water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the sugar to form a syrup, allowing it to dissolve fully in the water. Allow to cool completely
2. Peel and stone the mangoes. Blend to a puree in a food processor (you can use a hand blender should you not have a processor) and add the lemon and sugar syrup.
3. Add to an ice cream maker and following manufacturers instructions or pour into a plastic container and place in a freezer. Take it out and stir with a folk every hour until it has completely frozen.

Enjoy with your kids or when they have gone to bed, place a scoop in a glass of something sparkling. Delicious!
