Nowadays known as a frozen dessert made from sweetened water with iced fruit, the sorbet is extremely popular in Turkey, Persia, and other Middle Eastern countries, as well as Africa. In Africa, for example, the traditional sorbet it is called agraz, and it’s typically made form almonds, sugar and verjuice, due to this last ingredient, the sorbet has a stronger acidic flavor.

  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 8 tsp of Splenda
  • 580ml of low fat natural yoghurt
  • 1 punnet of raspberries
  • sprig of fresh mint, for garnish

  • After the mango is peeled and chopped off to the right size, put in into a blender and mix it with the yogurt, the lemon juice and Splenda finally blend them well until they reach a nice, soft, texture. When ready, place the mixture into a shallow dish and put it into the refrigerator for 2 hours, uncovered, and make sure you verify its consistency from time to time. After the time has expired, pour the sorbet into the food processor and blend it until smooth, then put it back into the refrigerator for another hour.

    After one hour, take the sorbet out from the freezer place it aside for 10 minutes. Garnish with a spring of mint and some raspberries too. It will taste delicious and plus, you’ll be well enjoying all the benefits of a low calorie dessert!
