No longer seen as just a palate cleanser, sorbet is the go-to glacial goodie of Summer 2014. Unlike its dairy-packed cousin ice cream, sorbet is without the fat and often made with fruit that has a natural sweetness which means less sugar is added (it's also easy to make at home too!). The popularity of sorbet has also helped the rise of the Sicilian-inspired granita, where flavoured ice is broken up once frozen to leave large crunchy ice-crystals. 

One of the best places to go for traditional sorbets and granita in London is Marine Ices in Chalk Farm. It's a well-kept foodie secret. Marine Ices was started in 1931 by Gaetano Mansi using his unique talent as an ice cream maker and the authentic recipes brought with him from his home in Italy. He created sensational gelato and real fruit sorbets that took London by storm. To this day Marine Ices are made to those same original Italian recipes.

If you want something more modern, London's bohemians have now breathed arctic life into the world of sorbet. The snowy stars of Street Feast at Dalston Yard in Hackney at the moment are Sorbitium Ices. 'Pedro' a boy from Brazil and 'Zan' a girl from Richmond met in a walk-in fridge whilst both working at Petersham Nurseries. Love flourished, only to discover they both shared an insatiable passion for ice cream. Disappointed by the overly sweet, artificial whippy stuff, they decided it was time to make some delicious ice cream and sorbets for London. Highlights this summer include Lebanese lemonade sorbet, Peach and Prosecco Bellini sorbet not to mention their watermelon and rose granita.

Nowhere the capital this weekend? We've rounded up our favourite recipes, above.
