Author: Maddie Jarrett | 27 Oct 2022
Summer is nearly here and we have the ultimate fruity escape for you!
We’re basking in the deliciously sweet and fruity fragrance of Lychee & Guava. As the weather starts to warm, we’ve got you covered with a refreshing sweet treat inspired by Donna Hay. Enjoy Lychee & Guava Sorbet with family and friends this holiday season.
Burn your Lychee & Guava Soy Candle ($44.95) while you cook! Fruity top notes of lychee, lime zest and mixed berries are accompanied by middle notes of peach and guava sorbet and base notes of coconut and vanilla.
1 cup caster sugar
½ cup water
2 x tinned lychees in syrup
1 x tinned half guavas in syrup
2 x punnets of fresh strawberries
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Step 1: Mix the sugar and water in a saucepan over low heat and stir. Once the sugar is dissolved, increase the heat to high and boil for 1 minute until a sugar syrup is formed. Set aside to cool.
Step 2: Place the lychees, guavas and strawberries in a food processor and blend until smooth. Strain the puree through a sieve using a rubber spatula to push the mixture through.
Step 3: Add the sugar syrup and lime juice to the pureed fruit and stir to combine.
Step 4: Pour the mixture into a freezer-safe container such as a shallow metal cake tin. Every 30 minutes remove the mixture from the freezer and stir with a fork. Make sure to smooth and level out the sorbet after stirring. Repeat this process until mixture is complete frozen.
Step 5: Once firm, your sorbet is ready to serve with fresh fruit and/or mint leaves.
