Tried and Tested: Apple, Basil & Mango Sorbet

Perfect colour for Easter!

Our Boy and I went to the gym this morning and watched the London Marathon from our own running machines (I am not quite in the league to attempt a marathon...). Well done to all that took part and there were new records set in several of the categories, I believe!

In an attempt to keep calorie intake down (please disregard yesterdays entry when reading this ;-))  and keeping in time with the traditional Easter colour, we made Apple, Basil and Mango Sorbet in the ice cream machine as a dessert for lunch. 
It turned out very refreshing and contains NOTHING BAD!

Bring to a boil:
150 ml water with 
3 tbsp Splenda (or sugar if you don't mind the calories)
1 finely chopped apple and 
1 finely chopped mango and 
5-7 leaves of basil and 
2-3 tbsp of lemon juice
Let it simmer for 5 mins till soft and blend to a pulp

Our ice cream machine takes about 5-7 dl, so measure this up (add more water if needed) and set aside to cool

When cool, add the mixture to the ice cream machine. 

We only ran the machine for 10 mins as we were so impatient to try it out. 
I can see this will be lovely on a nice hot summers day!
