Up the ante and cool down at the same time by creating a sweet iced tea with the juice of a pomegranate: Pomegranate has powerful nutritional benefits, being rich in Omega 5 fatty acid, a powerful antioxidant. They are in season in Australia from November to March so Summer is the perfect time to indulge in this sweet treat – light and refreshing!
Frozen fruit sorbets are a delicious treat to cool down as the weather heats up and being lighter than cream-based desserts, they are waistline and vegan-friendly! No ice cream churn required!
