I know, I know… This blog is slowly turning into a Sorbet-bonanza but I just can’t help it. Sorbets are amazing! They cool you down and curb your sweet tooth. They’re good for you AND taste great.

If there’s a more refreshing summer dessert, please let me know because I still haven’t found one. And I’ve been looking, trust me!

I’ve already shared with you the recipes for some of my favorites, such as this Raspberry Sorbet and of course the Peach Sorbet.

I needed a little more variety this time and since I’ve been daydreaming of running off to a sandy beach and spending my days under a palm tree for weeks now (blast this summer heat!), so I’ve made myself my tropical retreat.

Sure, this easy-to-make Mango Sorbet would taste even better by the beach, but still. Follow this easy mango sorbet recipe and make it at home!  You don’t need an ice cream maker, either!

IS MANGO SORBET HEALTHY?

When it comes to scrumptious desserts, there aren’t many (if any) healthier choices than a sorbet. This Mango Sorbet is made with fresh fruit and without an artificial sugar or dairy. Mangos are naturally sweet so you won’t even need to add any sweetener, not even raw honey!

Plus this mango sorbet recipe is gluten-free, lactose-free, artificial sugar-free… and yet so tasty!  Mango sorbet is definitely one of my favorite desserts you can enjoy guilt-free while staying true to your healthy ways.

IS MANGO SORBET PALEO?

Because this Mango Sorbet only contains fresh mango, lime juice, and some warm water, it is a paleo recipe as well.  Feel free to enjoy a scoop or two of Mango Sorbet if on a paleo diet. You’ll never miss ice cream again!

Recipe Notes

Mangoes are such a forgotten but amazing fruit.  They are just as creamy and sweet as a banana, and work perfectly for homemade ice cream or even when added to smoothies.  If you're not a fan of bananas, try out mangoes for an amazingly sweet and creamy frozen treat.

You can also add other flavors to this mango sorbet, like frozen strawberries or frozen pineapple for more of a tropical flavor.  Once you've tried frozen mango sorbet, you'll be a believer!

    Turned out too fibrous and not as tasty as the original mango. Other recipes of the same suggest using sugar to stabilize the sorbet. Wondering if that would have helped? Will try again in this recipe to see if it makes a difference.

  2. 5 stars
    THus mango sorbet is soooooo delicious. Can’t imagine why other recipes add sugar. Our mango tree has an abundance of fruit and this sorbet is a perfect way to make the most of them.

  3. I bought some frozen mango from the grocery store so do you think I’ll need to add sugar? But my real question is, how long will this recipe last in the freezer? A few days or a few weeks? Will it separate over time? Thanks!
