Sorbet is one on my favourite summertime treats. While lemon sorbet cleanses the palate and aids digestion, the humble lemon is also packed with vitamins, minerals and nutrients. It can help to repair the skin, assist to balance the body’s pH levels and act as an appetite suppressant.
All the more reason to give this recipe a go over the weekend or on a hot day! It’s refreshing, hydrating and definitely one for the treat basket – so enjoy in moderation.
