Pomegranate sorbet

Great low-fat dessert, check the recipe below

  • Serves 4-6
  • Hands on time 15 mins, plus cooling and freezing
  • Easy


  • 200g caster sugar
  • ½ cinnamon stick
  • 1 tbsp pomegranate molasses (optional, from Sainsbury’s)
  • Juice of about 6 pomegranates, or 600ml pomegranate juice, plus extra pomegranate seeds to decorate
  • 2 large free-range egg whites


  1. Combine the sugar, cinnamon, molasses and 100ml water in a small pan and heat gently until the sugar has dissolved. Cool completely, then combine with the pomegranate juice and taste.
  2. Beat the egg whites to soft peaks in a bowl, then fold into the sorbet mix. Either churn in an ice cream maker or freeze for 2 hours in a metal bowl, beating the edges of the sorbet every 30 minutes until it is firm but has a lovely smooth, mousse-like texture.
  3. Layer the pomegranate seeds and sorbet in dessert glasses or bowls.
