For the Zespri® 14 Day Challenge, we were tasked to use 2 kiwi fruit a day. I have endeavoured to stick to this part of the challenge by creating recipes that use no more than 2 kiwi fruit. Today is day 9 of the challenge and I hope that I have overwhelmed you with quality posts about kiwi, and that you don’t all feel exasperated by the quantity of posts I have done. I love sorbet as I consider it a guilt free treat. Yesterday I came home after training at gym and quickly whipped up this kiwi and orange sorbet. Due to time constraints I did not chill the juice over night and I did not freeze the sorbet before taking my photograph. The light was not brilliant as we are still in the throws of a wet winter but I wanted to share this with you. The zest from the orange and the seeds from the kiwi add some lovely texture to the sorbet and I reduced the ratio of sugar syrup in this recipe as I had a really nice large, sweet orange. I had two helpings of my kiwi and orange sorbet yesterday, and there is still a generous amount left in the freezer that I can treat myself to during the week.
Do you consider sorbet a guilt free treat, or a full on dessert?
- 2 kiwi fruit, roughly chopped
- Finely grated zest and juice of 1 orange
- 125mls simple syrup
