Ingredients to make Vietnamese Pitaya & Calamansi Sorbet

  • Pink Dragon Fruit /Pitaya – 1
  • sugar – 1 tblsp (Adjust to taste of Pitaya)
  • water – If needed
  • Calamansi/Small lime – ½ piece or ½ tsp juice extracted

How to make Vietnamese Pitaya & Calamansi Sorbet

  1. Cut the dragon fruit into two parts and remove the flesh from the outer skin.
  2. Roughly chop the dragon fruit flesh.
  3. Take a mixer and add dragon fruit, sugar and calamansi.
  4. Blend it once and check if water is needed to make it a smooth paste. My dragon fruit was ripened properly hence I never used it.
  5. Blend for 5 to 6 minutes. This time is needed because we are not using icecream maker and we are using a normal mixer.
  6. Transfer it to a container and freeze it for a minimum of 8 hours or overnight.
  7. Before serving take out and keep it for 10 minutes else it would be difficult to scoop.

My Tip:

You may add coconut milk if you want to be more creamy but for just sorbet this is fine. We can never predict the sweetness of dragon fruit hence adjust the sugar consistency. You may also use ice cream maker to make this recipe. Calamansi Lime tastes the best but if you don’t have one you can use lemon but there is a chance for the taste to slightly vary. Make sure you use only very few drops else the sorbet would become sour.
