When summer is in full swing, a Fruit Carpaccio platter with Mango and Honey Sorbet is the answer! Undoubtedly the most beautiful season by far, to spend time outdoors and getting in tune with nature. Even better when you can nourish the family with an easy and healthy, organic fruit platter and delicious home made sorbet.
Organic Produce for my Fruit Carpaccio
When I received gorgeous organically grown fruits from Jacksons Real Food Market, in Johannesburg, I was thrilled to learn more about the agriculture movement of the century – organic farming. You all know by now what organic farming means, right? The use of zero pesticides and chemicals ensures naturally grown crops with the soul purpose to uplift the people, soil and produce.
Of course you also know that the team over at Jacksons are doing their very best to provide you with these produce straight from the community of farmers right here in beautiful South Africa. Read more about the local organic system, changing lives as we speak – here. I couldn’t be happier munching on this Fruit Carpaccio platter filled with seasonal, clean and organic ingredients.
Going organic has never been this easy, folks. The fresh line of produce you will find at Jacksons Real Food Market is filled with a variety of fruit variations, always seasonal and they are aiming to stock organically grown produce only.
How To Make a Fruit Carpaccio Platter
A hot, summer’s day calls for a refreshing snack! Like this fresh and zesty Fruit Carpaccio with Mango and Honey Sorbet. Simply prepare your organic fruits by washing them thoroughly. Next peel and slice them into bite size strips or balls. I got to play with a myriad of fresh fruits for this shoot and decided to keep my plate of fruit pretty simple. Finally arrange it on a beautiful plate with extras like mint sugar, sugared berries and of course this INCREDIBLY smooth Mango and Honey Sorbet.
How To Make a Mango and Honey Sorbet
This Mango and Honey Sorbet is definitely the star of the show. Best of all no churning is needed, you only need to blend and pop it in the freezer.
Firstly peel and chop your mangoes up in small chunks and freeze it overnight. Once you are ready to make the sorbet, blend the frozen fruit with the honey. Pop it back in the freezer until serving.
Smooth, fresh, frosty and delicious.
