Mango sorbet with a hint of lime and mint

Summer has just begun. Yet, the temperatures are already to the roof. We’re feeling it in our mountain location. And I complain about it. A lot. I am also constantly looking for a refreshing treat. Thus, the mango sorbet I am serving you today.

Now, before you run away, let me tell you that this sorbet will not require any specialized equipment. You will not need an ice cream maker to prepare it.

I repeat. You will not need an ice cream maker.

You will, however, need a bit of patience. This recipe involves waiting for a few hours for the freezer to do its thing. Speaking of freezer, I almost forgot to mention that you will need one. Add a blender to the list.

But you already have those at hand, right? So, what are you waiting for to dig in?

Below are the quick steps you’ll need to follow to prepare my easy mango sorbet. If you lack patience, you can stop at step five and enjoy a cold mango smoothie. But trust me when I tell you, you should totally work on your patience. The long hours of wait are worth it. Especially after a long hot day.

  1. Wash and peel your mango (duh!)
  2. Cut it into chunks
