Paw Paw Sorbet

READY IN: 8hrs 20mins
Recipe by Miggi

I put this recipe together as I couldn't find any frozen desserts that I was able to eat due to my intolerance to a large number of foods and preservatives. This recipe is gluten free and dairy free, but contains Amines. You could try pears instead of the paw paw to take away the amines. It can serve 4 people - but I found it very hard to share :o)

Made this GREAT FROZEN DESSERT as directed (although I was tempted to use half papaya & half mango) & it is a wonderful, cool treat at the end of a hot day! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adopted Joeys in the Aus/NZ Special Recipe Swap #19]
