Tropical Mango Sorbet
If you’re looking for a healthier alternative to freezer case sorbets, why not make your own?
Sorbets are an easy dessert that can be made in as little at 15 minutes (…minus freezing time). Sorbet is nothing more than a fruit puree combined with a syrup made of water and sugar. Most recipes call for lime or lemon juice.
This Tropical Mango Sorbet is and is one of our favorites because it only calls for 2 Tbsp of sugar. Since mangos are naturally sweet, it’s no wonder that mango-based sorbets are so popular.
With more than 20 different vitamin and minerals, mangos are a nutritional all-star. They’re rich in vitamins A, C and contain potassium, B-vitamins, vitamin K and fiber. You can enjoy a cup of sliced mango for just 100 calories.
3 Ripe Mangos, peeled, pitted and cubed (makes two cups of puree)
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons lime juice (juice from 1 medium lime)
1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
1 cup chilled pineapple juice
lime peel or lime wedges for garnish
Puree mangos, sugar, lime juice and extract in a blender or food processor until smooth. Transfer to the bowl of an ice cream maker and stir in pineapple juice; freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. Cover and place in the freezer for at least 1 hour, or up to 1 week. Garnish with twists of lime peel or lime wedges.
