Refreshing, simple, and ready in minutes, this Mango Sorbet is a seriously delish recipe to share with the kids. You don’t need an ice cream maker and yet, it’s perfectly creamy!
I love having the option of turning frozen diced mango into sorbet, especially on warm days. It’s so easy to do—it’s similar to my Instant Frozen Yogurt—and seriously delish. This is a great option for families who can’t do dairy, those who love mango, or as a snack or dessert to share.
You need either a blender or a food processor to make this recipe. They work similarly, so use the one you prefer. And it is best served right after making, so do plan accordingly.
Ingredients You Need
To make this recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- Frozen diced mango: You can use any brand you like. I tend to buy the least expensive option.
- Greek yogurt or canned coconut milk: You can use either of these options, as they both work similarly.
- Optional: You can adjust the sweetness by adding honey or maple syrup. You can add in a little fresh lime juice or zest to add more flavor.
Here’s the general process of making this recipe. Scroll down to the end of this post for the full information.
- Add ingredients to the food processor. (It usually helps to let the frozen mango sit at room temp for about 5 minutes before you start so it’s not rock solid.)
- Blend, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. It can take some time for the pieces of mango to blend up, so stop and start as needed.
- Serve it immediately in bowls.
How to Store
This is best served right after making, but you can also freeze it in individual containers for future use. Let it sit at room temperature for 20-30 minutes if serving from the freezer.
We often freeze any leftovers as Mango Popsicles.
Best Tips for Success
- Use frozen diced mango and let it sit at room temp for about 5 minutes before you start.
- Use Greek yogurt, plain or vanilla, or full-fat coconut milk. You can also use apple juice if you prefer.
- Adjust sweetness after making by tasting and then adding honey (avoid for kids under age 1) or maple syrup. Mango is usually very sweet so we don’t usually do this, but the flavor in the fruit can vary.
- Add a little fresh lime zest or juice if you’d like extra flavor.
- Do half mango and half banana to vary the flavor.
