Ingredients

All of ingredients for mango sorbet portioned into white dishes on a white countertop.

I am highlighting just the ones that need further explanation. The complete list is in the recipe card below.

  • Mangoes – either purchase frozen mangoes or use fresh mangoes and freeze at home (refer to the recipe tips section below).
  • Coconut milk – I just think mangoes and coconut are a match made in heaven! The coconut milk not only adds delicious flavor but also makes the sorbet smoother and creamier. I recommend using full fat canned coconut milk for best results. If you desire a creamier and richer sorbet, swap coconut milk with coconut cream. Note that the coconut flavor will be a lot more pronounced.
  • Lime or lemon juice (optional) – not only adds a slightly tangy flavor but also helps the texture to not be too icy.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Step 1: Prepare coconut milk – it’s normal for coconut milk to separate. No worries! Just warm in the microwave for 20 seconds or so and give it a good stir.

Step 2: Add mangoes, coconut milk, and lime juice (if using) to a high-powered food processor blender.

Step 3: At first, the texture will be crumbly. Don’t worry! Trust the process and continue blending. Alternate between scraping down the sides of the processor and blending until you achieve the desired smoothness.

Recipe Tips

  • Take the frozen mangoes out of the freezer about 5-10 minutes in advance to make them easier to blend, resulting in a smoother texture and reducing the strain on your blender or food processor.
  • If you’re using fresh mangoes, peel and dice them into uniform pieces, roughly 1 inch in size. Then, flash freeze them, similar to the method used for freezing bananas. This prevents the pieces from clumping together into a single large block.
  • Do NOT over blend! It’s important to blend just until you achieve the desired smoothness, as further blending can break down the fibers in the fruit and release more liquid, resulting in a thinner consistency.

Variations

While this classic mango sorbet is delicious on its own, you can easily customize it to suit your taste or explore new flavors. Here are some exciting variations to try:

  • Pineapple Mango Sorbet – Add frozen pineapple chunks to your mango and coconut milk mixture. This addition brings a delightful tangy twist that pairs perfectly with the sweet mango.
  • Peach Mango Sorbet – Add frozen peach slices to your mango and coconut milk mixture. The sweet, juicy peaches blend beautifully with the mango, resulting in a refreshingly flavorful sorbet.
  • Spicy – Add a pinch of Tajín seasoningcayenne pepper, or a small chopped jalapeño to the blend. This spicy variation contrasts deliciously with the sweetness of the mango.
  • Creamier Mango Sorbet – Add a banana for extra creaminess and a subtle banana flavor.
  • Mint Mango Sorbet – Enhance the tropical vibe of the sorbet by adding a handful of fresh mint leaves. It’ll give your treat a cool, refreshing kick!

Equipment

You don’t need an ice cream machine to make this mango sorbet! But you do need a high-powered food processor or blender to break up the frozen mangoes.

I highly recommend using a food processor if you have one as the wider and more shallow bowl makes it easier to scrape down the sides during processing. My husband got me this food processor for Christmas two years ago and since then I’ve been using it multiple times a week.

Storage

Transfer the sorbet to a freezer-safe container. Smooth the surface and add a layer of plastic wrap or parchment paper on top to minimize ice crystals from forming. Close the lid and freeze for up to a month.

When ready to enjoy, let the sorbet sit at room temperature for 20-30 minutes to soften. This will make it easier to scoop.

FAQ

Can I use fresh mangoes instead of frozen?

Absolutely! If you’re using fresh mangoes, peel and dice them into uniform pieces, roughly 1 inch in size. Then, flash freeze them, similar to the method used for freezing bananas. This prevents the pieces from clumping together into a single large block.

Can I use light coconut milk instead of regular coconut milk?

Yes, you can use light coconut milk for a lighter version of the sorbet. However, keep in mind that it may affect the creaminess of the final texture slightly.

Is this recipe suitable for vegans?

Yes, this recipe is completely vegan-friendly since it doesn’t contain any dairy or animal products.

Ingredients 

  • 3 cups frozen mangoes (415g)
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup canned coconut milk
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey (optional)

Instructions 

  • Place mangoes, lemon juice, and coconut milk into the bowl of your food processor. Blend everything together until smooth and creamy. You will need to stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl occasionally to ensure everything is well combined. Don't blend too long though. Otherwise the sorbet will get too soft.
  • Once you have a smooth creamy texture, taste it and adjust the sweetness if needed by adding more honey. Enjoy immediately or freeze for 3-4 hours, or until ready to serve.

Notes

    • Take the frozen mangoes out of the freezer about 5-10 minutes in advance to make them easier to blend. This also results in a smoother texture and reduces the strain on your blender or food processor.
    • If you’re using fresh mangoes, peel and dice them into uniform pieces, roughly 1 inch in size. Then, flash freeze them, similar to the method used for freezing bananas. This prevents the pieces from clumping together into a single large block.
    • Do NOT over blend! It’s important to blend just until you achieve the desired smoothness, as further blending can break down the fibers in the fruit and release more liquid, resulting in a thinner consistency.
