Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Puree mango in a food processor until smooth.

  • Combine water, lime zest, lime juice and sugar in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved.

  • Stir the syrup into the fruit puree. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator until cold, about 4 hours.

  • Pour the sorbet mixture into an ice cream maker. (No ice cream maker? See Tips.) Freeze according to the manufacturer's directions.


Make Ahead Tip: Freeze in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Let soften slightly before serving.

If using frozen fruit, measure it frozen and then thaw before pureeing.

If you don't have an ice cream maker, freeze the mixture in a shallow metal cake pan or ice cube trays until solid, about 6 hours. Break into chunks and process in a food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed.
