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 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  and 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 the blood. Its health benefits were known for ages so it has been grown widely all over the country on the roadside. This summer fruit is so versatile that you can prepare many exciting dishes out of this and all love its strong, sharp yet sweet flavour
