NO-Guilt Mango Sorbet/Ice-cream

On a Diet! Everyone is trying to eat a little healthier, but that doesn’t mean you have to skip out on the dessert. I usually don’t like to stock store-bought ice cream at home because my girls love ice-cream and will get into the freezer anytime time there is icecream. I instead freeze the leftover fruits from yesterday’s snack or freeze fruits that are not in season. My girls love mangoes, so you will find a lot of frozen mangoes in my freezer and to whip up a mango ice-cream is a breeze. You can ask your kids to whip it up too.

This Mango Ice cream is creamy, fruity, and whipped just right to taste divine. Best of all, they won’t wreck your diet. So, go ahead, and serve yourself a big bowl and maybe seconds too.

 

Ingredients

3 cups of frozen diced Mangoes

¼ cup coconut milk (You can use heavy cream or yogurt, but coconut milk adds a nice flavor to the mangoes)

1 tbsp. of honey or sugar (optional) I don’t add this, but if you want to make it sweeter go ahead.

Directions

1 Thaw out frozen mangoes on your counter for 20 mins. If you are going to use fresh mangoes, freeze them for 12 hours.

2 Place all the ingredients in your high-powered blender or food processor. Process until you get a smooth creamy mixture and there are no mango chunks. Do not over process it or it will begin to melt.

3 Serve immediately or Smooth it out in a container and freeze it for a later time.

Note: if you are going to freeze for a later time, take it out 10-15 mins before and serve.

Variations: Instead of mangoes, try strawberry bananas, raspberry chocolate milk combo, peaches, cherries and much more.
