Mango Sorbet

Time really flies, everyone is planning for their mid year holiday.  It is about time I reflect on what I had achieved.  For sure, I have not been really active in the kitchen.  I think I should start throwing parties again to get me out of my comfort zone. 

The weather has not been very encouraging as well.  It has been terribly hot these days and I have been busy churning out ice cream for the family.

Little one requested for a sorbet and since I have not tried making Mango Sorbet on my own, I shall add this to my tried and tested list.

I like this recipe as I don't need to cook sugar syrup and wait for it to cool down.  So I can get into the action fast.

With this humid weather, taking this shot is tough.  I had to work seriously fast. 

Verdict: Totally yummy and I love the dark orange hue with this batch of mango. 

Now join me with the melting mango sorbet. 

What you need:

800g fresh mango flesh
170g sugar (if mango is very sour you might need more sugar)
¾ cup water
1 tbsp of dark rum
4 tsp lemon juice


Combine sugar and water.  Let it sit for 15 mins to dissolve some of the sugar.

In a blender, put the mango flesh, lemon juice, sugar solution, rum and blend until smooth.

Churn in the ice cream machine.
