Homemade Berry & Mango Sorbet – No Churn Easy Dessert Recipes
So, yesterday I was saying how I started this journey towards eating healthier. Threw down a mad Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Chicken recipe that was was the bomb but also kept my waistline in check. Well, today as a super bonus, I took advantage of a sale at my local grocery store to stock up my freezer so I can whip up some Uh.Maze.Ing easy desserts to keep my sweet tooth happy as well! Mango Sorbet! Mixed Berry Sorbet! YUM…. Spring is right around the corner ya’ll! It may be all white and snowy where you are right now but TRUST – it’s a comin’! Here in Vegas, we’ve already had some *80 days! I’m sorry. (no, I’m not) Frozen fruits are awesome during the cold months, when you can’t find fresh. They are also great time savers. And you know I’m all about saving me some time in ye old kitchen! With a couple of my semi-homemade hacks, you can magically transform most frozen foods into recipes your friends and the fam will swear you spent all day in the kitchen whipping up. They will sing songs about your awesome-ness! And, if you play your cards right, you can easily talk them into cleaning up those dishes too! Ok, maybe just the dishes part.
Homemade Mango Sorbet
- 3 Cups Frozen Mango (chunks, thawed)
- 1/2 Cup Simple Syrup (equal parts water/sugar or sugar substitute)
- 1/2 Cup Lime Juice (I fresh squeezed)
- Zest 1 Lime
For our mango sorbet, start by making your simple syrup. Use equal parts water and sugar, warm over medium heat just until sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool. Drain off any liquid from your thawed frozen fruit. Dump the whole kit and kaboodle in a blender. Blend until you have a ‘slushie’ type consistency. Pour in metal container. I used a meatloaf type pan. Now, here’s where you have to make the tough decision my friends. Go for super duper easy or go for pretty. I, obvs picked pretty. Place your mixture in the freezer. Every 45 minutes or so, take a hand mixer and remix your mango sorbet. After 3 hours you’re good. Allow to finish freezing for another 3 hours. If you’re not taking some sweet photos for Pinterest, or the small frys home on Spring break don’t care, you can skip the mixing every 1/2 hour. Your mango sorbet will taste just as awesomesauce, it just will look more ‘slushie’ rather than ‘sorbet’d’. That made sense, right?
For your Mint and Mixed berry Sorbet –
- 3 Cups Frozen Berries (thawed)
- 1/2 Cup Simple Syrup
- 1 Banana
- 1/2 Cup Orange Juice (I fresh squeezed)
- 2 Drops Mine Extract (or, use fresh chopped mint leaves)
- Zest 1 Orange
The directions are exactly the same as they are for our yummy Mango Sorbet! Again, you decide if you want to go for pretty and mix every 1/2 hour or not. It still makes everyone sing songs about you!
