When I bought my home in Florida, I was blessed with a mature mango tree in my backyard. While looking for mango recipes on the web I came across this recipe. To add to the joy of the simplicity of this recipe, You don't even need an ice cream machine. All it takes is the ingredients, a plastic freezer storage bag, and just a little attention. This recipe can also be made with any mangoes you may be saving in the freezer, and Splenda may be substituted for the sugar.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients into a blender and puree until smooth and slightly thickened.
  2. Pour the puree into a plastic freezer storage ban and place in your freezer.
  3. About every 1/2 hour for the first 2 hours mash the bag by hand to keep the ice crystals small and the sorbet smooth.
  4. Freeze over night, and serve the next day for best results.

Wow! I had 3 or 4 mangoes that were over-ripe. I went browsing for something easy and this was it! It was a taste of heaven! Love that I didn't have to dig out an ice cream maker.

We seldom get really good mangos here, but lately there were organic ones on sale and DH brought home a dozen very ripe mangos which I had to either freeze or process somehow. He voted for kind of ice cream, so I went looking for simple, ice cream maker-free recipes. There are several mango sorbet recipes on zaar, but from experience I know that people around me don't care for pure fruit and fruit juice or yoghurt sorbet, so this one got my attention. I made as suggested, using raw cane sugar, and found that I have to get it out of the freezer ten minutes before serving. By then it has a great texture and can easily be scraped into balls to serve. It got rave reviews! I made a second batch to which I added some fresh ginger, which also turned out great. This will for sure be a keeper. Thanks for posting!
