Exotic Mango Sorbet

The other day I was outside in my garden, relaxing and just enjoying the sunshine. Ok, seriously, if you have to know, I was weeding! Terrible job! Like that was not bad enough, this Mango falls off the tree and hit me on the head! So I figured if life throws me Mangoes, I will make Mango Sorbet!

It is such an easy recipe and the sorbet is really tasty and refreshing - even the kids will love it! You can also easily convert it into a cocktail - Exotic Mango Sorbet with a twist (read on)..

EXOTIC MANGO SORBET

12 Mangoes (this will make about 2L) - cut in cubes
1/2 cup Sugar Syrup
1 tin Coconut Cream
1 medium size Pineapple - peeled and sliced

Cut the mangoes in cubes and freeze them for about 3-4 hours. If you freeze them overnight, take them out for half an hour before use. 
Put frozen mangoes into a blender with the sugar syrup and blend. If you do use the store bought frozen mangoes, you might have to add some more sugar syrup as they are not as sweet.
Add the pineapple and coconut cream and blend till slushy.

Pour into a container and freeze. It can be served after about 2-3 hours in the freezer. Take out for 5 minutes before dishing.

Absolutely delicious!

After blening all the ingredients in the blender, add a tot or two of Coconut Rum (Malibu or other)  to the sorbet and mix. Pour into Coctail glasses and enjoy!
