Jamun Sorbet

Jamun Sorbet

If someone asks me what attracts me the most in this world…Hmmm…I would definitely say that the vibrant colours of the seasonal veggies and fruits and the berries of course…I love their colour and texture when they are ultra fresh (their different vibrant colours provide different health benefits…Darker the colour…More the antioxidants)

The same happened today while returning from the park I saw a vendor selling jamun and I fell in love with them, as soon as I bought them I decided to make sorbet or frozen iced dessert out of them and when it got prepared oh….what the colour…It was so inviting n catchy 💞

As we all know this Indian berry or black plum or kala jamun has numerous health benefits. Full of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins, highly recommended for diabetic patients as it controls the sugar level in blood. Its health benefits were known since ages so that it has been grown widely all over the country on the roadside. This summer fruit is so versatile that you can prepare many interesting dishes out of this and it’s strong, sharp yet sweet flavour is loved by all
