Mango Madness - Sorbet Recipe

Mango's are my all time fav of the tropical fruit family.  When I say they are my fav I mean I am CRAZY for them.  Not only are they delicious, they are a powerhouse of Vitamins A and C.

Here are some of the Mango's Health Benefits

Protect cells from free radical damage.
Lower certain cancer risk.
Improve iron absorption.
Great for the eye.
Helps fight off viral infections.
Relieves constipation.

If you've never tackled a mango before you are in for a treat.  In some countries the mango is referred to as "bathtub fruit" because they are so juicy that children are often placed in the bathtub to eat them!

Pick fruit that is soft to the touch. Mangos have a large, kind of flat, oval pit in the middle so the best way to work around that is to slice off either side of the fruit, score it, then remove it from the skin.

Mangos are great on their own, in salads, or in smoothies.  A real treat is to make sorbet.

Here's an easy recipes:


2 C frozen Mango
1 C water
1/3 C Agave
1t vanilla (optional)

Place all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Serve immediately
