Sweet Potatoes are usually served boiled, mashed and roasted but as a sorbet? Raised eyebrows all round. Don’t let your preconceptions put you off – this is a moreish little treat.

A good source of potassium, fibre and vitamin C sweet potatoes are also one of the most versatile vegetables available, as this sweet potato sorbet recipe demonstrates.

This unique way of enjoying sweet potatoes provides a refreshing and delicious treat or dessert, perfect for sharing with family and friends during the summer months.
