have you ever heard of kiwana?
Kiwana: an exotic animal, an African country, a river …
None of this: it is a sorbet made with kiwi and banana !
I wanted to experience this taste suggested to me by Lorenzo Marconi of “Le botteghe di Leonardo” at the Gelato (ice cream) Festival in Florence.
You’d think (honestly I thought it too) that the two together would give a horrible taste … instead, it is fantastic, try it!
Forgive me in advance, because, at the time of composing the cup, I realized that I had used all the Kiwis and I had not left even a little bit for decoration; I replaced Kiwis with a little mint sprig!
Here’s the recipe…
150 gr. of banana
100 gr. of kiwi
180 gr. of sugar
400 ml of water
4 gr. of stabilizer
Measure water and pour it into a bowl with sugar, banana and kiwi then blend well in a blender.
Add stabilizer and stir, then put the liquid into the ice cream maker machine and stir for at least 25/30 minutes.
When it is ready, put it in the freezer for at least an hour and …
…it is now ready to be enjoyed!
