Recipe of the week: Homemade mango sorbet
I love ice cream, but I recently learned the hard way that too much dairy is not always good for my body. However, I refuse to remove sweet treats from my consumption so I started looking for healthier alternatives and I came across a recipe for raspberry sorbet. It seemed easy enough, but I’m not too crazy about raspberries so I opted for my personal favorite — mango. The initial recipe I found called for water or sugar syrup to help blend the mangoes, but I decided to try out fresh orange juice for added flavor. I also tossed in some lemon juice to compliment the other fruit flavors and voila. I have a great new ice cream substitute.
1 cup frozen mango 2 fresh oranges
1/2 lemon *optional* crushed ice
