Meritene Strawberry, Lime and Grape Sorbet

This recipe makes a great tasting sorbet, it is deliciously simple and refreshing. Frozen fruit is perfect for this recipe as it’s usually good value and you can buy it all year round.

Try to find the blackest grapes and zesty lime to add an edge to the flavour combination.

You could also try a different combination of other fruits such as strawberry and banana which also works well. swap the grapes for a small banana and mash into a chunky texture before freezing.

The nutrients within the Meritene sachet add vitamins D, B2, B6, C and minerals including Calcium and Iron plus protein to the recipe.

Cooks Tips
You can make this into a creamier, more indulgent ice cream by swapping the 0% Greek-style yoghurt for a full fat, creamy version instead.

I rely on sorbets to be dairy free as I have a dairy intolerance.
Could the Greek style yoghurt be replaced with a dairy free version?
