Electric Daisies, Mango and Chilli Sorbet

Mango and Chilli Sorbet

Here is a lovely recipe idea from James Wong on using your Electric Daisies

Whether it’s a tongue tingling dessert or the ultimate between course palate-cleanser, this curious ‘fizzy’ sorbet is guaranteed to bring a smile to your mate’s faces.


  • 3 fresh mangoes, peeled, seeded and sliced
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 2 limes
  • 250g icing sugar, sifted
  • 1 small red chilli, finely chopped, plus a little extra for garnishing
  • 9 small electric daisies, finely chopped, plus a little extra for garnishing
  • Flaky sea salt

Serves 4

What to do
Blitz the mangoes, lime zest, lime juice and icing sugar in a food processor to produce a smooth purée.

Pour into a Tupperware container and pop in the freezer for 1 hour.

Give the mixture a quick stir once every hour until fully frozen (this will take about 4 hours). During your final stir, sprinkle in the chilli and electric daisies and mix well.

Wipe the rim of a martini glass with a slice of lime to coat it in a thin layer of lime juice, flip it over and dip the rim into a mixture of sea salt and chopped electric daisies.

Serve the sorbet in the salt-rimmed glass and garnish with electric daisies and freshly sliced chillies.
