I entered my local Whole Foods today and what did I behold? A mountain of gold and I was sold. Ok, so I’m not a poet but there was a mountain of gold champagne mangoes. I’d been looking for some ideas for healthy eating on the road for our upcoming cross country trip to California and while you wouldn’t usually think ‘sorbet’ this recipe is made for traveling. So, whether it’s across the country or just to work, this sorbet is a ready to go treat.

Ingedients:

  • 4 mangos, peeled, pitted and cut into chunks
  • 2 oranges, peeled and sectioned
  • 1/2 cup lite coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp orange blossom honey (or any raw honey)
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, split and scraped (or 1 tsp vanilla extract)
  • 4 resealable pint size freezer bags

Preparation:

  1. Place all of the ingredients (except the freezer bags) into a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.

    Pour the mixture into freezer bags

  2. Divide the mixture evenly into the 4 freezer bags.

    Lay bags on a flat surface in the freezer and squeeze every 10-15 minutes

  3. Lay on a flat surface in the freezer and every 10-15 minutes squeeze the bags to break up the chunks as they start to freeze.
  4. After about 2 hours or until the sorbet is mostly solid, squeeze into a serving bowl and serve.

    I love fruit in the summer. I was wondering how this would work with grapefruit? I also was wondering about kiwi.

      I’m not so sure about grapefruit. I think citrus fruit would be pulpy and not taste as good with the coconut. I would try peaches or pineapple. The kiwi would be good with strawberries and banana. Let us know how it turns out. We would love to hear what fruit combinations you used.
