Mango Sorbet

As usual,  I don’t think about blogging a thing till I’m  halfway through doing the thing!

The other day I bought half a dozen beautiful little ataulfo mangos, they were ripe, ready to eat right then and there.   And of course I realized once I got home that we were not going to get around to it!  The eating I mean.  So I decided I needed to do something, and in some wild flight of imagination I decided to make mango sorbet.

Who knew how easy sorbet is to make, surely not me!

you peel the mangoes and squish all the pulp into a blender or food processor.  Based on how many mangoes, you make the appropriate amount of simple syrup, or heck, you could just buy simple syrup.

For my 6 mangoes I used 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar, heated to melt the sugar, and then cooled, and the juice of 2 limes.

Then just process till smooth.

You can use machines to freeze your sorbet, but I don’t have that either.  I think the machines would make the sorbet smoother and creamier, mine is a bit like an icee or a slushie.  But it is damn tasty!

    Check out the Yonana machine. We have one and I buy mangoes in season, peel and slice and freeze for later user. I love ataulfo mangoes and make them into sorbet or whatever you want to call what the Yonana does. Just mango, no sugar, no syrup, nothing. Heaven!
