Tips

  • For a mint Bellini sorbet, use 6 Bellini Peach Orange tea bags and 2 Pure Peppermint tea bags.
  • As an alternative to using a metal baking pan to store the sorbet, you can also pour the mixture into a standard ice cube tray which produces easy to handle frozen cubes for puréeing.
  • Can be prepared and stored in the freezer for up to 1 week.
