Healthy Granadilla Sorbet – By Tuist Craft Ice cream

Granadillas are also known as passion fruit, and they certainly evoke a passionate response. You either love or hate them. If you love them, you may already know how good they are for you. If not, here are some reasons you may want to celebrate Spring with a homemade granadilla sorbet.

  • Granadillas are a rich source of antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and fibre.
  • They are a good source of vitamin C, providing about 30mg per 100g of granadilla. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a powerful water-soluble antioxidant which helps your body to resist flu and other infections – and it helps your skin fight harmful, pro-inflammatory free radicals.
  • Granadilla pulp is full of fibre which not only helps with digestion and elimination but also to remove cholesterol from your body.
  • Granadillas contain good levels of vitamin A and flavanoid antioxidants such as beta-carotene and cryptoxanthin-beta. Vitamin A is essential for maintaining healthy mucosa and skin.
  • Fresh granadilla is rich in potassium, a major compoent of cells and body fluids that helps to regulate your heart rate and blood pressure.
  • It is also an excellent soure of minerals like iron, copper, magnesium and phosphorus.


Make your own granadilla sorbet. It’s easy, healthier and cheaper than shop-bought, especially if you have a granadilla bush at home.

Granadilla sorbet

1 cup boiling water

1 cup caster sugar

pulp of 10 granadillas

juice of ½ lemon (or 1 lime)


Stir the water and sugar together in a medium bowl until sugar is completely dissolved. Allow to cool.

Scoop out the flesh and seeds of the granadillas into a food processor. Add the cooled sugar syrup and lemon juice. Pulse for about 10 seconds. Pour into a sieve over a bowl and rub with a spoon until only the seeds remain in the sieve. Add about 1 teaspoon of the seeds to the bowl, if you like seeds in your sorbet. (This step is not essential, but it helps to loosen the flesh from the pips. If you don’t have a food processor, simply mix the pulp, sugar syrup and lemon juice together then sieve to remove the pips.)

Churn in an ice-cream machine until firm.

If you don’t have a churner, pour the mixture into a shallow lidded container, cover and freeze for about 3 hours. At this stage there should be a firm ring of ice around the sides and base of your container with a soft slush in the centre. Scoop it all into a food processor and whizz until smooth. (Or beat using an electric beater.) Return to the freezer until firm, then beat and freeze 2 more times.

  • Black Head Black Friday⚫️ // Let's clear out the blockage⠀
Do you struggle to keep those constant black heads away?⠀
Blackhead aka comedones are formed due to open pores that are clogged by dead skin cells and sebum. The blocked pore reacts with oxygen in the air, causing it to turn black.⠀
One misconception is that blackheads are dirt in your pores. Blackheads have nothing to do with dirt. When your skin's natural cell turnover process is sluggish, your pores collect a backlog of oil and dead skin cells.
Just remember, that you may not be able to completely rid your skin of comedones, but you can refine your pore size to minimize the appearance of them. ⠀
This is why I would suggest using a retinoid to help increase the cell turnover rate, keeping your pores clear.⠀
Happy weekend 🌿

First impressions usually last, and hands can be the way to project that. We greet each other by hand gesture and shaking. Think about it... shaking hands with someone is often your first point of contact with them.⠀
Hand grooming - this is a small detail,that we all should actually pay attention to. ⠀

  • Whats New (s) // LUNA 2 mini ⠀
Customise your cleansing experience. ⠀
Do you ever feel like your cleanser just doesn't clean your skin enough and you need something more? Something that removes all the dirt and impurities? However, over cleansing with the wrong cleanser can do more harm to your skin than good. So what do you do?⠀
This is when I discovered the LUNA 2.⠀
LUNA 2 is a unisex cleansing tool suitable for all skin types. It drives away dead skin cells and unclogs 99.5% of pores from dirt and oil aka make up. ⠀
And unlike other cleansing devices with bristles that require excess sterilisation and transfer bacteria onto your skin, the LUNA 2 is made from an ultra-hygienic silicone that is nonporous and resist bacteria buildup. Preventing transfer of bacteria (??) and making your skin glow. ⠀
For more info on this product please email me.⠀

  • Saturday skincare tip // ⠀
Remember Sun burn fades but Sun Damages last.⠀
Even on cloud covered days UVA rays damage to your skin is still the same. So wear you SPF daily even when in door or out doors.⠀
Our darken skin types skin will even darken with SPF applied because of the type of melanin by just daily exposure but it is the damage that you want to avoid.⠀
Our lighter skin type are less fortunate and our damage is obtained quicker.⠀
So look after your skin - you would regret the good choices you make today.⠀

  • Men's Health // Movember 
Skincare / Skin health should be as important to men as it is to women.

As November is the month to bring awareness to men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide. I think we should also bring awareness to skin health as men actually have a higher rate of skin cancer than women. 
When it comes to the skin, men have thicker, more oily skins with larger pores. 
So cleansing it properly should be essential to avoid build up of dead skin cells, clogging of pores and to make sure you remove the dirt and impurities off the skin.

For all men suffering from beard ingrown hair aka 
Pseudofolliculitis Barbae.

I recommended the Luna 2 - 3-In-1 Facial Scrub Brush, Pre-Shaving& Anti-Aging Device.

Easy to use and resulting in your razor blades to last twice as long. For more info please contact me.  #movember #menskincare #skincaretip #awareness #testicularcancer #prostatecancer #skincancer #skinhealth #layersskin #foreo #luna2 #folliculitis
  • About Nicola // Micro blading best decision I have made!⠀
I am not a tattoo person at all and get bored very quickly with things. So I thought this will never be for me but how pleasantly surprised I was. ⠀
Most people at first glance think my brows are naturally this way. I actually find it to be a complement as they appear natural and that was what I wanted.⠀⠀
I find that brows do frame your eyes and face. So by just applying foundation after my spf in the” morning, my face looks done.⠀
Some indivuals have gorgeous brows and I will say never change them but for those less fortunate like I was - micro blade them. ⠀ 
My micro blading was done my Margaret Osborne permanent make up. Please have a look at her Facebook page.  #microblading #natural #brows #layersskin #aboutme #permanentmakeup #skintips #beautytips
