Two Minute Mango Coconut Sorbet


I am proud of myself.  I selected this week's recipe for Eating with Ellie (EwE).  I loved this and it could not be easier.  Two minutes is really two minutes.  It is called Two-Minute Mango Coconut Sorbet.

The recipe has four simple ingredients, frozen mango (I am sure fresh mango can be used), honey, basil and coconut milk.  Into the blender and zap, you have a frosty refreshing scrumptious dessert, breakfast, snack or whatever you want whenever you want it.  I could sit down to these, particularly in the hot weather at any time.

I made mine while the mango was still partially frozen so it came out icy cold but it can be frozen or it can be put in the refrigerator.  In my opinion, icy is better.

I liked this more than I have liked any dessert in a long time and that includes chocolate.  I am sure, you could make this with any fruit if you are not a mango fan.  Peaches to blueberries should work.

Only a little honey is used and I would guess this changes with the fruit of choice.  This had just the right sweetness, not cloying but subtle and present.

To see what others thought of this and how their' s turned out, check our page.   I love Ellie.  We are using her book, Weeknight Wonders and most of these dishes are just that.

  1. Chaya,
    What a refreshing dessert. My husband buys mangos, cuts them up and freezes them so we always have frozen mango in the freezer for smoothies. This is something different and a great idea. Thanks for the recipe.

  10. I also loved this and I think you are right that it could be made with many fruits. I omitted the honey and it was just fine - I feel as though mango is already naturally sweet and I like that taste.
