- Easy Homemade Mango-Strawberry Sorbet, No Added Sugar
Easy Homemade Mango-Strawberry Sorbet, No Added Sugar
Idea by Dafna Gorman
Our homemade sorbet today is made of only two ingredients: fresh mangoes and fresh strawberries. No added water, sugar, or anything else.
The key is to use very ripe fruit. They are juicy and very sweet (relatively to a fruit) and will naturally sweeten our sorbet and provide it with all the required moisture to make the blending easier.
Blending extracts the liquid out of our ripe fruit and intensifies our perception of sweetness.
Here it is.
Sweetened by: fruit only
Special equipment: stick blender/blender
Preps: 10 minutes (freeze time: 3-4
You will need:
1 very ripe, large mango, peeled, pitted and diced.
1 ½ cups (or a very generous handful) very ripe strawberries, stems removed.
How to make it:
1. Blend mango and strawberries till texture is smooth.
2. Freeze for 3-4 hours or until the texture resembles that of a slushie (softly frozen but not frozen-solid). Serve.
Our mixture can be left to freeze for longer, in which case it will solidify into ice. Take out of freezer about 40 minutes ahead of serving.
Another option is to use frozen fruit to start with. It’s important to defrost them a little and add water before blending, to make it easier on the blender.
