Instant sorbet with homemade ice magic

Emily Kerrigan

In the time it takes one of you to set up the Wii or Scrabble board, the rest of you can have made a homemade fruit sorbet, with no added sugar and next-to-no washing up. If you were a kid in the Eighties you will remember Ice Magic - chocolate sauce in a squeezy bottle that immediately turned solid on hitting cold ice cream.

**Disclaimer** if you're going to make this in 5 minutes you'll need to have prepped your fruit in advance and got it frozen, ready and waiting in the freezer.

Makes 1 small tub

Mango version:

400g mango, cubed and already frozen in a freezer bag
1 lime

Strawberries and cream version:

400g strawberries, hulled and already frozen in a freezer bag
100g mascarpone

Ice magic:

100g dark chocolate chips

Takes 5 minutes 

1. Boil the kettle. Get the kids to decant the chocolate chips into a mug. Pour a little hot water into a plastic measuring jug and put the mug inside the jug so that the chocolate begins to melt.

2. Get your chosen fruit out of the freezer and whizz briefly in a food processor until it turns into sorbet. Zest in a little lime for the mango version and add the mascarpone for the strawberry version. Pulse again to combine and quickly scoop into cones or bowls.

3. Get a teaspoon and stir the chocolate which will now have melted. Remove from the jug by the mug handle (mind the hot water and little fingers) and drizzle over everyone's sorbet; it'll crisp up and go solid, just like the original Ice Magic. Any leftover sorbet can be frozen for another day (get it out of the freezer a while before you want to serve it so that it's soft enough to scoop).
