    My Thermie arrives with my parents on Friday! I can’t wait…for my parents to get here that is…

    Anyway, dragonfruit abounds here and the strawberries are coming back for their second run which is a God-thing because I thought we’d missed strawberry season so you can be sure this will be one of the first things we make!

    Yippeee! I hope you have a great time with your family and Thermy!! Let me know what you think of the sorbet – I’ll bet your little sister will love it! 😉

    That looks so beautiful. I love red dragonfruit so much. They cost a fortune in Townsville. I saw them for $9.95 each the other day! Where do you source them Jo?

    I just stumbled onto your blog, a homeschooler and a thermomixer..me too YAY!!! Although my TM certainly doesn’t get used like yours does, very impressive.

    In case your interested we have a social networking site for qld homeschoolers – http://www.connectinghomeschoolers.ning.com and there is a small group of TM users on there also. 🙂

  7. Jo Whitton says:

    Hi Kylie! I’ll have to come and visit your site – thanks! 🙂

    I just got 3 Dragonfruit for $5 at the Strand Markets in Townsville – making this tonight as a trial for my daughters birthday.

  9. Jo Whitton says:

    Hi Kellie, hope you like it! I find it really needs the lime or strawberries or something, otherwise it’s a bit bland on its’ own. Have fun!

  10. Kellie says:

    A big hit Jo! I didn’t have Strawberries but had a bag of frozen mixed berries in the freezer which I used instead. Yummo!

  11. Jo Whitton says:

    Yay!!! Great colour, hey!

  12. Haidee says:

    We picked our first dragon fruit today and I knew exactly what to do for dessert! I don’t have a Thermy (yet!) but did attempt the sorbet in the blender, it wasn’t really solid but boy it was YUMMY!!!!!
    I halved the sugar and used coconut sugar which was perfect. The lime was just right and it was so refreshing. Thanks for sharing all these wonderful recipes 🙂

  13. Jo Whitton says:

    Lucky you, having your own dragonfruit! Those things are expensive… Glad you liked it 🙂

    Hi Jo,
    I am just wondering whether a thermomixer is really necessary for your sorbets or ice creams. Could it be possible to to user a mixer or beater then pour the miz into a tray and freezer to set overnight

    What a coincidence I did this for my daughter’s 6th birthday. It’s funny because in the end we made way too much food. We did scones & jam & cream (but GF scones are attainable I’m sure… I’ve never been able to succeed at them), coconut ice – I’m wondering if you can find a clean recipe of this. It’s just desicated coconut, sweetened condensed milk and pink food colouring. You could use beetroot juice to colour and maybe something like agave or rice syrup instead of the condensed milk?? Also lots of berries and watermelon. For the “tea” we went to an op shop and bought a bunch of cute old fashioned teapots. I then ran some berries, and a few apples, through my juicer and mixed the juice with soda water, served it in the tea pots, they loved it!! And we had a huge pink tablecloth 🙂

    The combination of dragonfruit and lime was really nice and tasted good, I used only zest of 1 lime though. the sorbet came out a little runny, I will perhaps try again with less ice?
