Method

  1. Put all the ingredients in a food processor with a pinch of salt and blitz until very smooth.
  2. Scrape into a shallow, freezer-safe container, cover, and then freeze for 2 hrs.
  3. Use a fork to break up any ice crystals, so the mixture returns to being smooth. Freeze for another 2 hrs, then break up the crystals again. Repeat this 2-3 times until the sorbet is fully set. Serve with extra mint leaves, if you like.
