Mangoes have a sweet, rich, and creamy texture that blends perfectly into a mango sorbet. Add a dash of freshly squeezed lime, and you have the perfect hot summer day treat!
Mangoes are delicious all year, but they are especially refreshing in the warm summer months. No fancy equipment is needed to make this sorbet. In fact, you only need a blender or a food processor.
Mangoes for Mango Sorbet
When making mango sorbet, you have two options to choose from, fresh or frozen mangoes. Here is a quick rundown of the pros and cons of each.
Fresh Mangoes - The pros of fresh mangoes are they have the perfect flavor and are affordable when they are in season. If you use fresh mangoes, you will need 3 -4. The mangoes work best when they are frozen first, however, this is optional.
Frozen Mangoes - Frozen mangoes are very simple to use. They are already peeled, cubed, and frozen. Just buy a bag and keep it in your freezer until you are ready to make the sorbet. Prices may vary by market, but a 3-pound bag of frozen mangoes at my store runs about $9.50.
Chili Powder - If you like a kick with your mangoes, add 1 tablespoon to the recipe at the blending stage. You can also sprinkle a little chili powder on top of each scoop.
Alcohol - If you want to make this sorbet boozy, decrease the amount of water used in the simple syrup and replace it with vodka or rum in the blending stage.
- To make this super boozy,
- Make the simple syrup, but reduce the water amount by half (from 1 cup to ½ cup).
- In the blending stage, add ½ cup of desired booze to the recipe.
