This quick sherbet is a real explosion of fruity and tropical flavours, with lime and ginger to balance the sweet tones. It’s a wonderful, cool treat on a warm day and it comes together in just a few minutes. Where we live, you can find frozen mango and avocado in the supermarket, but it’s easy to make yourself: simply peel, chop and place in a container in the freezer. The chocolate-drizzled pineapple is popular with the kids. We try to keep a variety of chocolate-drizzled fruit in the freezer as a super-quick treat and here it doubles as a topping.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

Chocolate-drizzled pineapple

Quantity Ingredient
1 fresh pineapple, cored
60g good-quality dark chocolate, (at least 70% cocoa solids)
2 tablespoons desiccated unsweetened coconut, toasted

slush

Quantity Ingredient
250g frozen ripe mango
100g frozen avocado
1/2 orange, juiced
1/2 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
2 passion fruits

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
chopped almonds

Method

  1. Cut the pineapple into 1 cm thick slices and then cut them into triangles or half-moons. Lay them out on a sheet of parchment paper. Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie or water bath. Dip a spoon in the chocolate and drizzle it over the fruit. Sprinkle with the toasted coconut. Leave to set while you prepare the slush.
  2. Add the mango, avocado, orange juice, lime juice, ginger, maple syrup and the seeds from one of the passion fruits to a blender or food processor. Blend on a high speed until smooth, scraping down the sides if necessary. Divide the seeds from the second passion fruit between two glasses. Scoop the slush into the glasses, top with chocolate-drizzled pineapple and some chopped almonds. Serve immediately, with spoons.
