Mango Sorbet

IMG_2894 ps

Summer is just around the corner, and with it comes seasonal summer fruit. While I like winter citrus, I really look forward to spring and summer seasonal fruit. Berries, mangoes and watermelon are my favorite fruits. In particular, there is something about mango that is tropical and exotic. The texture is smooth and creamy and the flavor is sweet.

I love this mango sorbet because it is fruity, refreshing and easy to make. It has me dreaming of sipping a mango colada on a beach in the Caribbean islands.

Yields about 1 quart
