This recipe originally began its life in my kitchen as my daughters French cultural project. She claimed that she was making a French dessert with mangoes. I wondered, what French dessert was made with mangoes? Upon research, I found this French Sorbet recipe being used throughout French Caribbean. It’s also healthy. I know it’s not quite the season for ice cream and sorbet, but if you’re a lover of Mangoes, this is definitely a recipe to try. All you need is 4 ingredients and an ice cream maker. This is so refreshing, easy to make and full of vitamin C.
Bring 1 cup of sugar & 1 cup of water to a soft boil, stirring frequently.
Once all the sugar is well dissolved, you will be left with a simple syrup. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
Wash & dry 4 ripe mangoes
and slice mangoes
Puree in blender or food processor.
Add the cooled sugar syrup and the juice of 2 limes, and puree until smooth.
Pour puree into ice cream maker, and let it do it’s thing. I use an inexpensive Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker. It works well, and costs under 60 bucks.
Once done churning, place in a freezer safe container and cover.
Refrigerate for a minimum of 4 – 6 hours before serving.
Let the sorbet thaw for 10 minutes before serving.
