MAJESTIC MANGO, PASSION FRUIT AND LIME SORBET

Super refreshing and healthy.  Naturally sweet so no added sugar.  Just watch out for the brain freeze.  I made this in my ice-cream maker but you could puree it in a blender of some description but keep on stirring it every so often to prevent too many crystals.  Tip; a chef told me to use…… Continue reading MAJESTIC MANGO, PASSION FRUIT AND LIME SORBET

For a healthier twist of mince beef try using ostrich mince it’s lower in fat rich in taste. Also you could try turkey mince but personally I prefer the ostrich. Just be aware that it cooks a lot quicker than the other type so don’t cook it for long or it will dry out. Can…… Continue reading Tip of the day
