Celery Sorbet Recipe:

This simple and light sorbet only requires 5 ingredients: 

- celery stalks (200 g) 
- water (200 ml)
- sugar (3 tbsp)
- lemon juice (3 tbsp)
- fresh mint leaves (7-10 small leaves)

1. Wash your celery and add it to your juicer. The darker the color of celery, the stronger flavor. Collect the juice in its container and discard the pulp. Add lemon to the juice.

2. Place the water, sugar and mint in a saucepan, cook over medium heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Get it to boiling point, turn off the heat and leave it to cool completely. Take out the mint leaves.
After cooling mix it with juice.

3. Pour the mixture into a shallow and freezer safe container and place in freezer. Freeze for one hour then stir the sorbet with a fork to break up the crystals. Put it back in freezer. Repeat the stirring every half an hour until it is completely firm and frozen.

4. Let it sit out for a few minutes to soften up before scooping out and serving.

If you don't have a juicer, first make the sugar syrup (step 2). Put it into a blender, add washed celery stalks and lemon juice. Blend it, strain the mixture and freeze it.

There are only 50 calories in 100 grams of celery sorbet.
