- 1 cup water
- 200 g sugar
- 1 pineapple, peeled and sliced into chunks
- 1 cup fat-free yoghurt
- 15 g fresh mint, stalks removed
- For the caramelised lemon:
- 100 g sugar
- 4 slices of peeled lemon
In a small saucepan, bring the water and sugar to a boil.
Turn down the heat and simmer until it starts to become syrupy.
Add the pineapple, reserving a few slices for serving, and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
Place in a blender and blend until smooth, then add the lemon juice and yoghurt and blend for a few seconds.
Add the mint and blend for a second or two. Pour into a container and place in the freezer.
Use a fork to break up the ice crystals when the mixture starts to freeze, then return to the freezer.
To make the caramelised lemon: Melt the sugar over a low heat in a large saucepan – do not stir.
When the sugar starts to melt, swirl the pot until it has all dissolved and starts to turn golden brown. Remove from the heat and cool slightly – be careful not to burn your fingers.
Dry the lemon pieces with a paper towel and dip into the caramel. Serve with the sorbet and slices of fresh pineapple.
Cook’s tip: The caramelised lemon should be made just before serving.
