    justcallmetoni's Note:

    Nothing is better in the summer than a frosty frozen fruit treat. Even better when its is light and luscious like this one. The lime heightens the natural sweetness of the mango while the whipped egg whites make the dessert light and airy. I ran across this one in a local newspaper and recently decided to try it in my ice cream maker. The directions and preparation time here are for conventional freezer preparation without an appliance.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Peel and cut up the mango into chunks. Puree mango and 2 tablespoons of lime juice in a blender or with an immersion blender. Set aside. (Don't worry if the puree is tart, the lime juice mellows in the freezing process.)
    2. 2
      Mix the gelatin into the remaining 3 tablespoons of lime juice in a small heatproof bowl. Place the bowl in a small saucepan of simmering water and stir until the gelatin dissolves. Add gelatin-lime juice mix to the mango puree.
    3. 3
      Whisk egg whites to soft peaks. Add sugar or Splenda.
    4. 4
      Gently fold the egg whites into the mango.
    5. 5
      (If you are using an ice cream maker, follow the directions for your machine here. In mine, this takes about 20-22 minutes.)
    6. 6
      Place the mixture into a freezer proof bowl for 2 hours. Take the bowl out of the freezer and mix to break up the ice chunks and return to the freezer. Allow it to freeze until firm or solid.
    7. 7
      If sorbet is frozen solid prior to serving, place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes before serving.
    8. 8
      Scoop sorbet into bowls and garnish with lime zest strips.

      This is a easy light desert for the summer or any time. Use 2 cups of frozen mangos during the winter for a taste of summer and the islands! I used 6 packets of Splenda and 2 fresh mangos. Serve with a shortbread or fresh strawberry sorbet for a change of pace. I keep this in the freezer up to 2 weeks when I can keep my hands off.

      *Reviewed during Zaar WOrld Tour 4* This was a wonderful sorbet. I used pulped mangoes that I had frozen when they were in season here. Made this dessert super quick and simple. Easy instructions and very easy to make without an ice-cream maker. My daughters both loved this sorbet. We served it with tinned lychees for a tropical dessert. Photo also being posted.
