Beat the heat with a sweet and easy mango sorbet

When it comes to summer desserts, you can’t beat a sweet homemade mango sorbet. Refreshing and super light, it’s the ideal sweet treat to finish off a summer meal. Said to be one of the first frozen desserts to be invented, sorbet dates back to Ancient Rome or Persia when shaved ice was paired with fruit juice. Several myths link the frozen treat’s origins to legendary historical figures like Nero and Marco Polo. 

What is mango sorbet made of?

Sorbet is an incredibly simple dessert to create, only requiring a handful of ingredients – a flavour base that’s usually made with fruit (in this case mango), a sweetener (icing sugar), a liquid (orange juice) and an emulsifier (egg whites). 

For a smooth fruit sorbet, you want to start with a base of fresh sweetened puree that is mixed with whipped egg whites to create a fluffy and stable texture when freezing. This is the main difference between a sorbet and ice cream or gelato, which generally uses a cream or milk base to get that creamy texture. 

Tips for choosing the best mangoes for your sorbet

This delightful fruit makes summer feel extra special, with its tender orange flesh and unmistakable tropical flavour. There are several mango varieties – including Kensington Pride, Calypso, R2E2 – each with slightly different flavour profiles. When it comes to deciding on a variety to use in this recipe for mango sorbet, go with your favourite as it will be the one you’ll enjoy in this dessert, as well as any one of these sweet mango recipes

Picking the perfect mango comes down to colour, aroma and firmness. Fruit with bright yellow or orange skin, a delicate scent and tender to the touch will have the ideal sweet and juicy flesh that will produce the best dairy-free mango sorbet.
