      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. NB Original recipe is 3 Seville oranges or 1 eating orange and 2 limes - this variant uses lemons 😀
  2. Grate the zest of the fruit. Weigh 200g icing sugar into Closed lid
  3. Squeeze the juice and add to Closed lid. Mix the sugar, zest and juice on speed 1.5 for around 15 seconds
  4. Insert butterfly and then add the cream.
    Beat on speed 3 until soft peaks form. Keep a close eye to ensure it does not overwhip. I used whipping cream and it took 2 minutes
  5. turn into shallow dish with lid. Freeze until firm (3-5 hours). Remove from freezer for 15 mins before serving
