What Is Sorbet?
A sorbet is a frozen dessert made from fruit. Sorbets are a simple combination of fruit or fruit juice combined with honey or sugar. It's a healthy frozen dessert and a great alternative to high fat ice cream.
This mango sorbet requires only 3 ingredients and can be made in a blender, poured into a dish and placed in the freezer to chill. No ice cream maker is necessary!
This is technically a single serving sorbet recipe but could easily serve two people.

How To Make Mango Sorbet
- Cut 1 mango lengthwise alongside the pit and with a spoon, scoop the flesh from the mango sides and place in a blender.
- Add ½ teaspoon of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of honey to the blender and purée until smooth.
- Pour mango purée into a freezer-safe dish or small loaf pan and freeze until completely frozen.
Tips For Making The Best Homemade Mango Sorbet
You can use 1 cup of frozen mango chunks instead of a fresh mango but be sure to use a blender that handles frozen fruit well.
I use a Vitamix and love it. If you don't have a Vitamix or a Blendtec you can use a regular blender. You might find that you need to add a bit more liquid to the fruit to get everything moving in the blender.
You can make a sorbet out of almost any kind of fruit. Watermelon Strawberry Sorbet is one of my favorite sorbets and comes together just as easily as this mango sorbet.
If you would like to make a vegan mango sorbet, you can substitute agave nectar for the honey.
I freeze the mango purée in a small freezer-safe dish. A mini loaf pan works well. Feel free to use any freezer safe dish that will hold the purée.
