I loved the rich and natural flavour of the sorbet, and it was really quick and easy to make, without an ice cream machine. I made a mango sorbet. I had two problems though: 1) The frozen mixture was way too dry and hard to process in a blender or food processor, so I had to use my hand blender, which always gives the smoothest results. Even then it was still difficult to mix (my blender actually started 'smoking'!). The lemon juice just wasn't enough to make it manageable, so I suggest adding more liquid, like orange juice. 2) If you add sugar to the fruit and just freeze it that way, you will taste grains of undissolved sugar in the end product, which I find quite unpleasant. I think it's better to make a syrup (by dissolving sugar in boiled water first), or add another liquid sweetener such as honey or maple syrup. To sum up, I prefer making sorbets with fresh fruit and a syrup, and freeze it in a churning machine. But with a few adaptations, this recipe is a really good alternative for people who don't have an ice cream machine. Thank you.

Everyone should try this, perfect for summer and I'm sure I will be making it often with lots of different combos! Thanks for all the ideas!

I used strawberries, bananas, orange juice and honey and it came out great! However, the frozen fruit massacred my cheapo food processor. Next time, I'll skip that step and use fresh fruit instead.

This is an easy way to make sorbet! I made mango and banana sorbet. I forgot that my food processor didn't work so I used the blender and skipped to step two as that way they blended together easier. I also used organic sugar which made it fat-free and sugar-free sorbet! Thanks for a great recipe!
