I love Sorbet. It's great for getting rid of any old fruit that needs eating. So you can think of this recipe as a mold. What you need is a base syrup- the water and the sugar, a flavour- blended up fruit, lemon/lime juice, whatever. If you want you can also add a contrasting flavour, in this case, the ginger. You can use your imagination with this one, but as a base, you can't go wrong with mango and ginger- yum!

This was a wonderful, low-cal treat! I simply threw the mangos in the food processor, along with the syrup, after it cooled. I can't stand jasmine tea, so I used mint green tea instead and it was absolutely wonderful. The mint adds as nice, extra-cooling effect. Tons of flavor, none of the calories. Too bad it is November, because this would be a wonderful way to cool off in the summer. Thanks for sharing!
