Summer Chill'n

I melt for kitchen appliances, tools and gadgets. This year my husband (John) got me the cutest apron (I'll get a pic soon) and a food dehydrator - which I was dying to have. My family/parents got me a radical ice-cream maker (I will post brand and more goodies tomorrow) and a flour sifter. The ice-cream maker was a total left field surprise! So far we have made vanilla ice-cream, MILK FREE! uh, yum! And this sorbet (eww, pure mango is a little too much for me!). Tonight I have made a [milk version] to-die-for-chocolate and tomorrow is the milk-free version. I'll do a proper post on the recipe book for the milk free recipes. So rad.

Mango Madness Sorbet
(this requires the use of an ice-cream maker)

3 C. Mango (peeled, diced, pureed)
1 C. Water
1/3 C. Sugar or Agave Syrup

Puree Mango, sugar and water in a blender or food processor until smooth.
Chill for at least 2-3 hours.
Finish up in an ice-cream maker according to the instructions.
Ours took 30 minutes to freeze up.
Eat and Enjoy! Yum!

I LOVED this sorbet! Not sickly sweet....just right sweet. I ate a huge bowlful while chillin out by Randy's pool.

This is the second mango sorbet recipe I have seen today; I may have to give it a try soon. Must get an ice cream maker!
