Mango Sorbet 芒果沙冰


Sorbet is a refreshing dessert to cleanse your palate after a  meal.   I've made mine with some mangoes given by a friend from her orchard and it's fruity and fresh.  Yum is the word and it's perfect to snack on more so on a hot and humid day!







Recipe for Mango Sorbet  芒果沙冰 (adapted from 'here' with modification)
    Ingredients                               


    • 2 ripe mangoes, about 1 kg, peeled and pitted
    • 130 gm sugar
    • 160 ml water
    • Juice from 1 lime, about 4 tsp
    • 1 Tbsp Rum or more to taste
    • pinch of salt
    Method

    1. Cook the sugar and water till sugar has dissolved, let cool.
    2. Cut the mango into chunks, put them into a food processor.  Add in salt and lime juice and puree till smooth.
    3. Sieve the puree and discard any pulp.
    4. Mix in the sugar syrup, test for taste.
    5. Pour into a large bowl, cover with cling wrap and keep refrigerated overnight.
    6. Just before churning in the ice cream maker, add in the Rum, mix well.
    7. Churn the mixture according to  the instructions of your ice cream maker.  Transfer the mixture to a plastic container and freeze before serving.
    Note :

    As alcohol doesn't freeze, adding alcohol in a sorbet helps to prevent it from freezing solid but if adding too much, the sorbet won't freeze at all.
