Notes

Mike's Top Tips: The yoghurt sorbet isn’t an instant dessert as it takes a while to freeze, so best to make it the day before you want to eat it. Try freezing this delicious sorbet in a metal container as the metal will act as a temperature conductor, freezing the sorbet twice as fast as if it were in a plastic container. As the sorbet freezes, make sure you give it a good stir every 30 minutes. This will prevent any large ice crystals forming. - Mike Van de Elzen
