A light and tangy dessert.


  • 450 g fresh or frozen strawberries (thawed)
  • 1 tblsp fresh lemon juice
  • 125 g sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3 kiwi fruit


  • Liquidize and sieve the strawberries, adding the lemon juice to bring out the flavour and enough sugar to sweeten.
  • Put in a container and freeze until there is a solid layer about 2.5cm/1 inch around the edges.
  • Break it up with a fork.
  • Whisk the egg whites until stiff and standing in peaks, but not dry, then add the frozen strawberries, still whisking, to make a thick mixture.
  • Pour this back into the container and freeze again until solid.
  • About an hour before you want to eat the sorbet, take it our of the freezer and put it into the fridge to soften a little.
  • Peel the kiwi fruits and cut them into thin slices.
  • Put spoonfuls of the sorbet in individual glasses and tuck the kiwi fruit round the edge.
