mango-sorbet

Lime is the perfect complement to mango.  An overripe mango, which can taste a bit vegetably, is easily remedied with a splash of lime juice.  I made this sorbet with that in mind.  It’s very easy to make and extremely good for you.  Just look!  There’s barely any sugar!

This is best enjoyed a little soft.  Twenty seconds in the microwave will get it the right consistency if it has been in the freezer for longer than five hours.

mango lime sorbet

4 ripe, medium-sized mangoes
3 tablespoons sugar
zest and juice of 1-2 limes
pinch of salt

1.  Pulse all four ingredients in the food processor (or the blender if you have a really good one), until smooth.
2.  Place in ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.  (Mine is a Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt/Ice Cream maker, and I let mine spin around for about 25 minutes.)
3.  Place in an airtight container and freeze for at least 3 hours.
4.  Serve with curls of lime zest.
