Summer equals FRESH MANGOS and I am here for it, ALL SUMMER LONG! We have been enjoying homemade frozen treats with summer fruit for months and this Spicy Mango Mint Sorbet has been SUCH a hit, I had to share! Sweet, spicy and refreshing, all the things I love on a hot summer day!
If you're not buying your mango at an Indian grocery store, please find a local store close to you! I promise you won't regret it! Most Indian grocery stores carry Marathon; Kent mangos, they are THE best!!
I've always had a little trouble picking out perfectly ripe fruit. Just a couple of years ago I learned that color is not always the best way to gauge ripeness of a mango! Unsure how to pick fresh mango? Check out Mango.org for some great tips! You can usually find really good mangos between May and September!
To make this Spicy Mango Mint Sorbet you need:
- Mango- fresh or frozen
- Mint leave- fresh
- Lime juice
- Maple syrup (optional)
Blend all the ingredients, freeze for 6-8 hours or over night.
Enjoy this sorbet just as is or turn them into popsicles to enjoy on hot summer day! If you're having a get together pour some tequila over the sorbet to enjoy it as a boozy treat!
