Mango Sorbet


Amazon Prime is a very dangerous thing. Free shipping on almost everything they sell on Amazon (which is everything) can make for some scary lunch break impulse shopping. That’s why I now own an ice cream maker. Even though it was an impulse purchase, I don’t regret it. With three ingredients (or fewer) and half an hour, I can have delicious sorbet.

The first flavor I made was mango. If you have an ice cream maker (or plan on impulse buying one – here’s the one I got ) here is what you need for mango sorbet


  • 3 ripe mangoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 3/4 cup simple syrup (bring 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to a boil. Let cool, measure out 3/4 cup and save the rest for later)
  • juice of 1/2 lime

Place all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Puree until very smooth. Chill this mixture in the fridge for about an hour (optional – makes freezing faster). Pour into prepared ice cream maker and churn according to manufacturer instructions. It is delicious in this soft serve format, or freeze for a few more hours for scoops.

Light, refreshing, and healthy! I look forward to lots of sorbet experiments in the future. Any requests?
