Quick Mango Sorbet
Yesterday the morning felt like Fall was just beginning, but the afternoon heat was a reminder that Summer is still hanging on for a few more weeks. We get it Summer, it ain’t over until it’s over in 2 more weeks! And who knows, the heat might just hang on until early October. If you’re still on the lookout for a delicious way to cool off come 3:00, this mango sorbet is the key.
This recipe is simple, but it’s fancy. The Blender Girl developed it for us, and she’s the master of combining flavors that are interesting and delicious. Our Mango Sorbet has a kick of citrus to accentuate the mango, and trust me on this one, rosemary. The herbal hint takes this from really good to 5-star.
Tips: Homemade Summer Sorbet
Summer sorbets are easy to make and instant. No lengthy churning, and endless options for flavors. The only real necessity is frozen fruit. There’s a day in the shelf-life of fruit when it’s just a tad past its peak and has lost its slight crisp and bright color. That’s the day I take 5 minutes for meal prep (or smoothie prep) and chop, give an extra wash and pop it in the freezer.
You can use any fruit and flavor combo you like. For more watery fruits like melon and watermelon, you can add a bit of frozen banana or avocado to thicken up your sorbet. Dates also work as a binder if your recipe doesn’t set up to the right consistency. And you can always give it a quick freeze for 20 minutes to help.
5-minute Sorbet Recipe
If you need a treat in 5-minutes or less, simple mango sorbet will help you beat the heat. I even double the recipe and save a few servings because it disappears so quickly in my house.
