Tropical Sunshine Sorbet in the Thermomix

As a lot of you would know if you are following along with me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, I got my Thermomix just over a week ago. I have done more cooking, baking & making in my kitchen in the past week than I have almost all year long haha!!! Slight exaggeration, but it's embarrassing how much I hate being in the kitchen!  Well, let me rephrase that... how much I hated being in the kitchen. Notice the past tense? That's because I've done a complete 360! I have been enjoying making food again thanks to how easy Thermomix cooking is. Hopefully I will keep this up, because I am enjoying all the deliciously healthy (and a couple not so healthy haha) meals! After lunch today I was feeling really hot and I thought I'd whip up a sorbet to cool me down.

So here it is, my very first Thermomix recipe! Made by little old me. 

Tropical Sunshine Sorbet

80g* raw sugar
200g fresh mango (or thereabouts)
100g fresh pineapple
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 egg white
700g ice cubes

Put sugar into bowl and mill 10 sec/speed 9.

Add in fresh fruit, coconut oil, egg white & 350g ice cubes and blend 20 sec/speed 10, gradually increasing your speed from 1 through to speed 10 throughout that 20 seconds.  

Add the rest of the ice and blend for 1 min/speed 10. You will need to use your spatula to move the ice about so it all gets blended up! 

This recipe serves 4.

*You can adjust the sugar amount to taste. The amount is often determined by how sweet your fruit is, and how sweet you like your sorbet.
