Sorbet ball pyramid

Try this delicious vegan treat during the warmer months. This impressive looking dish is so simple, you don’t even need an ice cream maker.


  • 100 g sugar
  • 500 g mango flesh (you can use any fruit you like such as strawberries, raspberries, melon etc instead)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • Mint leaves and frozen raspberries to decorate, optional


Step 1.
Place the sugar in a pan with 250 ml water and bring to the boil. Cook for 2-3 minutes until slightly syrupy. Then leave to cool.

Step 2.
Prepare the mango (or other fruit of your choice) and cut the flesh into small pieces. Blitz with the sugar syrup in a blender until smooth. If necessary, pass the mixture through a fine sieve so it is very smooth.

Step 3.
Pour the fruit mixture into a shallow container and place in the freezer for 3-4 hours until firm. Stir vigorously every 30 minutes to break up the ice crystals and make a smooth sorbet.

Step 4.
To serve, scoop into balls and serve with other flavours stacked in a pyramid decorated with mint leaves and frozen raspberries, if desired.
