Sugarcane juice is not amongst the favorite list of Lil Angel. She finds it too sweet. Her tolerable level is just a couple of sips and not more. We on the other hand love this so much that we don’t mind gulping down a couple of cups at a time.

I wanted her to relish this.Sugarcane juice has a number of health benefits apart from the fact that is very delicious.

  •  It is an instant source of energy.
  •  It has anti oxidant properties
  • It promotes the clear flow of urine and helpful in avoiding kidney stones.
  • Sugarcane juice is given in the treatment of jaundice

Apart from this it is really refreshing to have a cup of sugarcane juice when the summer heat is killing us.

I wanted Lil one to enjoy this delicious sugarcane juice in a different form so I made this sorbet. In India, when the sugarcane juice is expressed, lime / lemon is kept between the sugarcane. The combo of lime and sugarcane is really refreshing. Here in China, sugarcane juice is expressed as such without any addition. I got this sugarcane juice [freshly expressed] and came home and added ginger powder and lemon juice to taste. Then made it into sorbet. Lil Angel loved this!

I used :

Sugarcane juice – 300ml
Ginger powder- 1/2 a teaspoon
Lemon juice- 1 teaspoon

  1. Mix all the ingredients together.
  2. Put it into a freezer proof container and freeze till set. 
  3. Around 10-15 minutes before serving, remove from freezer, scrape with a fork and serve in individual cups.

Note :

You can adjust the quantity of ginger powder and lemon juice to suit your taste.
