Treat yourself to a light summer treat: mango sorbet

You don't need an ice cream maker to treat yourself to delicious home made mango sorbet. This little treat is lactose and gluten free (without the cone) and you can make it in the blink of an eye!

Don't go buy expensive sorbets full of preservatives and other nasty stuff. Go to your closest supermarket and get a couple of ripe mangoes and a lime, come on! go go go!

You're back? Good! Now let's whip it up!

Cut your mangoes in half and take out the flesh either with a spoon or by cutting it into cubes and then flipping the skin. Throw it in your blender or food processor. Add the juice of half a lime. If the mangoes are very ripe, you won't need any sugar. Blend the mangoes and lime and give it a taste. Add more sugar or honey if it isn't sweet enough. Throw it in a baking pan or plastic container and freeze it. After about 1hr in the freezer, break it down with a spoon, mix and let it freeze again. Repeat one hour later. This prevents the sorbet from having big chunks of ice. Now let it sit overnight and you've got your sorbet ready!

Before serving, pop it 20 seconds in the microwave to soften. It doesn't get any easier than this so... Enjoy!!!

Me gusta mucho! prefiero mil veces un helado casero, que cualquier otro comprado, que no digo que no estén buenos, pero no sabemos muy bien lo que llevan y todo lo que se hace en casa siempre, sabe mejor y además engorda menos!

Un besito
