My boyfriend’s one request for his birthday dinner was that he wanted mango sorbet for dessert. There was one problem, I didn’t have an ice cream machine. I contemplated buying this but the practical side of me told me not to drop $60 on a machine I will probably use once. So I decided to try to make mango sorbet without a machine and see how it goes. I knew going into it that the sorbet would not be creamy since there would be no churning process. Since I was making a fruit sorbet, it might work out and lucky for me, it did! As predicted, it was more icy than creamy but for a sorbet it worked well. The sorbet was zesty and fresh; the prefect palate cleanser. Happy birthday to my love! xoxo
Puree the mango chunks with the juice of 1 lime and 1/2 cup of simple syrup. Pour into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm (about 6 hours to overnight).
