Mango Mojito Sorbet

My favourite adult drink on earth?  Mojitos.  It’s the mint + lime combo that I love so much, and I was craving it tonight.  So I got all mixological with my food processor and made a mojito-inspired dessert: Mango Mojito Sorbet.

As long as you have some frozen fruit on hand, you can mix it up in a food processor and have an instant sorbet!  No ice cream maker necessary!  And sorbet any time you want it, plus you get in a serving or two of fruit for the day.  Mmm.

This was the perfect treat to cool down with after dance class tonight.  It makes a fairly tart treat (which I quite like), but you may want to add a little bit of sweetener of your choice (I’d go with a liquid sweetener here, like 1-2 tsp. maple syrup)

Mango Mojito Sorbet

Inspired by Cara’s Mojito Frozen Yogurt, and Meghan’s Blackberry Ginger Sorbet, Serves 2

  • 1 c. frozen mango cubes
  • 1 frozen banana, cut into chunks
  • the zest & juice of 1 lime
  • 6-8 mint leaves
  • 1/4c. – 1/2 c. almond milk

Combine fruit, lime, and mint in a food processor and blitz well.  You may need to scrape down the sides a couple of times.  Add almond milk, 1/4 cup at a time, until the mixture is smooth.

Transfer to two bowls, grab a couple of spoons, sprinkle with unsweetened coconut or cacao nibs, and cool down in style!
