Fruit Sorbet - The Fermented Foody

Fruit Sorbet

It’s almost the week-end.  And another glorious week of weather behind us in the London area!




Soooooo lovely to see vibrant colours and blossoms again!













Today, I’d like to share a super simple raw dessert idea that I learned in Thailand when on my inaugural visit in 2009.

Relaxing outside a humble jungle house, my first ‘raw food lesson’ took place at a vast wooden table, protected from jungle rain (which we didn’t see!) by a beautiful, hand crafted bamboo roof.

To be honest, it couldn’t have been more magical.

I returned to home soil with fresh eyes and a host of ideas on how to change the way I ate.


One of the recipes Ta suggested was as delicious as it was simple and I’ve used it ever since, for a cooling dessert or refreshing treat. Isn’t it great when a treat is giving your taste buds a tantalising tickle and also food that’s part of a healthy diet? 🙂

Gather Your Goodies



Bananas/ Mangoes/ Pineapple/ or Raspberries

or … any fruit you love that you’d like to use to make a sorbet!

It’s Action Time!

  • Chop your chosen fruit into small chunks and place it in a zip lock bag in the freezer.
  • Leave there until frozen.
  • I use two methods for making sorbets this way.
  • I either take completely frozen fruit and use the mini bowl of my food processor and pulse until the fruit is sorbet consistency. Or, if the fruit is partially frozen, I pop it through my juicer, using the mincer attachment and a perfect sorbet emerges through the chute in seconds!
  • Either way, the result will be a perfect, refreshing sorbet with no added sugar, or just a little natural sweetener to taste, if you need it.

Ooh, Really?!

Next week, I’ll share some ridiculously simple toppings for these sorbets that will have you wondering why you ever reach for bottles full of dubious ingredients. Stick with me, kid. 😉

Oh. And have a fantabulous week-end!

Which fruit sorbet are you going to make first?!

MANGO! Definitely – what a great and simple idea! Why haven’t I ever thought of this? I’ve made fro-yo with fat free yogurt and berries blended first and then frozen. But your way, you don’t have the added sugar/sweetener from the yogurt and I bet the flavour is fab! Will def be trying this soon! Thank you x

    Sarah Jackson says

    My pleasure! This is just so quick and refreshing Nicole. It’s particularly wonderful in hot weather. And yes, no need to sweeten, although a little topping is rather fun. That’s in my blog post today! This is one of my fave super speedy desserts. x

Robyn says

    Sarah Jackson says

    Thank you for sharing Robyn. Appreciate that. Glad you love them! There are plenty more where the rest came from. My mind is constantly buzzing! 😉

Adriana says

Oh I like the juicer idea! So simple!

    Sarah Jackson says

    I couldn’t live without my juicer. I use it to juice and to mince my sweets. It’s one my kitchen babies Adriana! Indispensable.

Jessica says

Yuuummmm . . . I love making banana “ice cream” this way, I’ll have to try it with other fruits. Mango sounds amazing. Looking forward to the toppings!

    Sarah Jackson says

    They’re simple toppings, but overlooked by many Jessica. 🙂 … Scheduled for Monday! Have a great week-end.

Tamsin says

Ohhh yum – strawberry sorbet is my favourite!

    Sarah Jackson says
