Cherry and almond sorbet

This is a simple cherry and almond sorbet recipe that doesn’t require an ice-cream machine. I’ve used frozen cherries that you can find in most supermarkets, but it would work equally well with frozen mango or berries.

Serves: 4



  • 150g frozen cherries, pitted
  • 2 bananas, chopped
  • 150g plain coconut yoghurt
  • 30g maple syrup

  • Topping
  • Handful frozen cherries
  • ¼ cup toasted flaked almonds
  1. Line loaf tin with baking paper and set aside.
  2. Place frozen cherries, bananas, coconut yoghurt and maple syrup in food processor and blend for 2 minutes until smooth and creamy.
  3. Pour mixture into lined loaf tin. Scatter with more frozen cherries and toasted almond flakes. Place in freezer to set for 4 hrs before serving.

Tip: If you’ve put this in the freezer overnight, make sure you remove it from the freezer 30 mins before serving, to allow it soften slightly.
