Well, after a flurry of Easter eating, I thought it necessary to write about an equally fabulous, but non-based chocolate delight. Yes, it is more of a responsible eat, rather than a cocoa treat, but trust me Grubbers, I wouldn't lead you astray!
Introducing my Peppermint sorbet with Lychees.
Earlier this month, my fabulous cousin set up a nutritional blog www.alightperspective.blogspot.co.uk (check it out people, it's great), and it really got me thinking. Yes, I do love my chocolate and yes, I do love cheese even more…but they don't seem to love me, as my ever expanding waist-line might tell you. As with everything in life, it's all about a balance, and to counteract my last explosive Chocolate post, I thought it best to cool down with a bit of iced heaven.
Now, I know it's not summertime… (not even close!), but whether you're eating this on a particularly hot day or just after a heavy meal, this sorbet has all the makings of a great drink or dessert. The zesty tang of the lemon and lime work in perfect tandem with the peppermint, and coupled with one of my favourite fruits, the Lychee, every bite takes you one step closer to cleansing your palette and feeling more refreshed.
Who needs the gym eh?
