Mango Sorbet

Let’s do dessert!

It might be raining outside but when it comes to dessert no questions should be asked! This mango sorbet is what I like to call a guilt free sweet pass. It’s fresh, sweet and just the right thing to have after a heavy meal.  A while back I had lots of mangoes lying around looking cute as they do, so I decided to make sorbet. So without further a do lets do dessert.



3-4 Ripe mangoes

1/3 Cup Honey

1/3 Cup Fresh ginger juice

1 lime juiced


Peel the mangoes and and purée until smooth. Grab a large sieve and mixing bowl and begin to strain the mango purée. By removing the fibre you end up with a smooth mango purée giving the final sorbet a smooth silky consistency. After straining the last of the purée it’s time to add in the flavours. Add in the juiced ginger, honey, lime juice and Tbsp of vodka then give it a good stir to ensure everything is well combined.

Pour it into a freeze safe container and voila it’s complete!

Now for the easy part,  it’s time to test your patience. For a total of 4 hours it needs a good whisk/stir after every 40 mins of being in the freezer. Not hard right?

Of course it would be dead simple with an ice-cream maker, but where’s the fun in that. So just think of it as a light arm workout.

A few hours later your ready to serve.
