This Thermomix Mango Sorbet with Mint and Lime tastes just like a Mojito but without the rum! Now that the weather is starting to warm up here in Melbourne I’ve been experimenting with different flavours and this one is just perfect for a warm sunny day. It’s refreshingly creamy, tangy, tropical and naturally sweetened with honey.
One of the best things about the Thermomix is it’s ability to make sorbet in less than 5 minutes without the help of an ice cream maker. Unfortunately store bought sorbets are packed full of sugar and other additives so making your own is definitely worth it.
Both Coles and Woolies sell frozen mango pieces in the freezer section for about $4 each so you could make this dessert all year round. I’ve never been good at cutting mangoes so the frozen pieces make life so much easier.
- 500 g frozen mangoes note 1
- 5-10 mint leaves
- 10 g honey
- juice of half a lime
- 1 egg white optional to make it smooth
Add the mango and mint to the Thermomix Bowl and blitz for 20 sec/speed 9. Scrape down the bowl.
Insert the butterfly attachment and add all the other ingredients and mix for 1-2 minutes/speed 3 until nice and creamy. Sometimes the butterfly gets stuck and the error beep occurs - if this happens just keep scraping the bowl down. It will eventually work as the fruit softens!
Serve and enjoy!
