Super Quick Watermelon Sorbet & Granita

DSC01257

I’ve had my Thermomix for almost 3 months now, I first saw it in action 9 months ago at a home demonstration. The demo was more like a feast as the consultant whipped up 9 dishes in 3 hours for the 12 of us. I was very impressed by this kitchen appliance and spent the next 6 months thinking about the price tag and doing my own research on this gadget with over 20 functions. What eventually convinced us that this was worth the money was seeing my mum use her “Thermie” daily to make all sorts of dishes- food that she would not have otherwise made if it weren’t for her Thermomix.

Sydney was quite hot over the weekend and I had three boxes of watermelon in my freezer so I decided to blitz them up to make some healthy sorbet and granita.

I have in the past watched my friends use a fork to scrape a block of flavoured ice to make granita- this not only took time but a lot of muscles! The one below took 30 seconds with the push of a button.
