A scoop or two of this rich and sweet Mango Sorbet is everything you need to cool down on a hot summer day! Make it without any added sugar or dairy, and with just 3 simple ingredients.
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!
HOW TO MAKE MANGO SORBET
Sorbets are really easy to make. Not only do they require just a few ingredients, but you can make them even if you don’t have an ice cream maker at home. This Mango Sorbet is made with whole ingredients, including fresh mangos, lime juice, and warm water. Yes, it’s possible to make a delicious dessert you’ll actually enjoy without any artificial sweeteners or sugar, but also without dairy.
Told you sorbets are amazing!
To make Mango Sorbet, follow these easy steps:
- Remove the skin of the mangos by either slicing off with a paring knife or pressing the side of a tall glass between the flesh and the skin of the mango.
- Lay out the mangos, separated, over a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Freeze the mango chunks until completely solid.
- Place the frozen mango into a food processor, along with lime juice and blend until smooth.
- If needed, add some warm water to help the process along.
You can eat it immediately or transfer into a freezer-safe container and freeze for 3-4 hours until firm.
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!
- 2 mangos, diced (approx. 3 1/2 cups)
- 1 tsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1/4 cup warm water, as needed
Dice the fresh mangos and then lay them out over a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Freeze the mango until completely solid, which should take at least 3-4 hours, or overnight.
Place the frozen diced mango into the bowl of a food processor or heavy duty blender, along with freshly squeezed lime juice.
Blend until smooth.
You may need to add a little warm water and press down with a spatula to help the process along.
Eat immediately for a softer texture, or transfer into a freezer-safe container and freeze for 3-4 hours or until firm.
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!

Absolutely delicious! I topped it with your easy blueberry compote & it was heavenly.
I haven’t tried this one specifically but my mum’s been making the best mango sorbet this way for years with – just frozen mango. Adding lime juice sounds delicious!
Tried it with pineapple and it was too sour. I think if you go pineapple mango route you need a 1:2 ratio of pineapple to mango
But mango and lime juice sounds YUM
Hi! Can I use a hand blender for your sorvet or yogurt ice-cream recipes?
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.
It does change with sugar.
If helps ad 2 to 3 cubes of ice. <3
How did it work out?
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.
Did you ever respond to the 2 commentators?
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!
I really like these homemade ice cream and sorbet recipes. They’re natural and delicious!
