Mango Lime Sorbet
This dessert is a silky smooth sorbet inspired by the lush flavors of Thailand. Mangoes and limes create a refreshing combination of sweet and tart. The beautifully bright color of the mango is an indication of its richness in antioxidants, vitamins, and disease–fighting phytochemicals.
Makes 6 servings
2 cups pureed partially frozen mango
1/2 cup agave nectar
Juice of 2 limes
This recipe works best if the mango is frozen, and then allowed to thaw for about 15 minutes. Once it has partially thawed, puree the mango along with the agave and lime juice. Pour the puree into a shallow glass or metal bowl and then place it in the freezer. After 30 minutes, stir the puree, then repeat every 15 minutes thereafter until you are ready to serve.
To make it simpler, use store-bought frozen mango to avoid peeling and deseeding several fresh mangoes.
Note: The freezing process accentuates tartness and reduces the sweet flavor. That means the puree should be slightly less tart and slightly sweeter than you expect the final product to be.
