Blimbing, Ginger and Lemongrass Sorbet

Blimbing, ginger and lemongrass sorbet
Yields 7 cups

It's blimbing season. Blimbing are young star fruit and one of Bali’s most delicious fruit. Combined with energizing ginger and refreshing lemongrass, this sorbet is bursting with vitamins and antioxidants, as well as layers of flavour to make a chilled palate cleanser that’s perfect for hot days.


4 cups blimbing juice
230g ginger 
180g lemongrass
3 cups liquid Balinese honey
2 bananas
2 teaspoons lime zest
1 large green chili, deseeded
1 pinch of salt


1. Wash the blimbing, lemongrass and chili, and peel the ginger. Cut the ginger and lemongrass pieces into 1cm chunks.

2. Blend the blimbing and pass through a fine sieve.

3. Pour the juice back into your blender and whizz up again with the ginger, lemongrass and green chili, until you reach a fine puree consistency. Pass through a fine sieve again.

4. Pour the mixture into the blender again and this time add the banana and honey, plus a pinch of salt.

5. Blend one more time and transfer to your ice-cream machine, taking it out when it has reached a nice smooth consistency.

6. Add the lime zest and chill again for another minute. Keep in the freezer ready to eat at any time.

Note: Adjust the amount of ginger to your liking - this recipe has quite a strong ginger flavour.
