  3. Freezing method 1 - pour into a plastic container, cover and freeze for 1 and a half hours, or until just set around the edges. Beat mixture to break up ice crystals. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into mixture. Put into suitable covered container. Freeze for at least 3 hours

I am not sure where I got this recipe from and I haven't made it for years. I am now trying to get all my recipes onto bake space, so tried it again. I now own an electric ice cream maker and this comes out well in this. Is truly far more healthy than normal sorbet as it has the fraction of the sugar. Please note that this contains raw egg white, which is not suitable for all people, especially those with weakened immune systems
