Feijoa Sorbet Recipe

Here’s how to make delicious creamy feijoa sorbet.

Feijoa sorbet is delicious. To take your sorbet to a new level there’s a couple of ingredients you’ll need to add. Firstly, a beaten egg white will add structure and creaminess to your dessert. Also, a tablespoon or two of vodka will reduce the freezing point of the sorbet mixture and allow for a less icy final product. That’s right, it’s as simple as that!


  • 1 cup of strained feijoa pulp
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 Tbsp vodka
