Sorbet Recipes

This is a quick and easy sorbet that doesn't require an ice cream maker. A bit of heavy cream pureed with ripe fruits make for an excellent treat once frozen. I love this for hot summer days!


*Taste your puree before popping in the freezer to see if you'd like to add a teaspoon or two of sugar or sugar substitute. The fruits I used here were sweet enough, but not all fruits are alike. :)

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: Few hours in the freezer


  • 1 whole ripe mango, peeled and chopped
  • 5.5 ounces strawberries, fresh or frozen
  • 2 Tbsp heavy cream
  • dash of salt


  1. Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor.
  2. Blend until completely smooth, stopping once to scrape down the sides and mix the bottom.
  3. Pour into a freezer-safe and airtight dish. Freeze for a few hours.
  4. Take the edge of a spoon or fork and run it in circles to burst any crystals that have formed. Allow to sit for a few minutes at room temperature for maximum creaminess. Enjoy!

Best Answer

This is by far the easiest one I make:

4 mangoes - peeled, seeded, and cubed
1 cup simple syrup
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

Place cubed mango in a food processor, and puree. Pour in simple syrup and lime juice, and puree until smooth. Place in an ice cream maker. Freeze thoroughly.

Yummy! Hope you like it!
