Heat the sugar with 175ml brewed green tea until it begins to boil. Simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool, then chill in the fridge.

Heat the mango purée with the finely grated zest and lemon juice. Simmer for five minutes. Remove from the heat and cool, then chill in the fridge.

When both mixtures are cold, add the sugar syrup to the mango purée. Put it into an ice-cream machine or pour into a plastic container and freeze until starting to form crystals.

Beat the egg white until foamy and soft peaks are formed. Add to the mixture and continue to churn in the machine until ready. Transfer from the machine into a plastic container and freeze until needed. If you don’t have a machine, whisk every one-and-a-half hours for six or seven hours and then freeze until needed.

Tip of the day

Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
