EwE - Two-Minute Mango Coconut Sorbet

For Eating with Ellie this week, Chaya selected Two-Minute Mango Coconut Sorbet

In theory, this sounds nice - frozen mango cheeks are blitzed with coconut milk and basil to create a sorbet.  However, in practice, I could not get frozen mangoes so I used canned mangoes, and I was not a fan of the finished result, even when it set up - I found the texture a little odd and the flavour was not for me.

However, if you are looking for a relatively low fat dessert and you are a mango fan, this could be the dessert for you. 

To see what the others thought of this dish, visit the LYL section of the Eating with Ellie website.

I am sorry, it did not work for you. I loved it. I thought it would be good with peach and that is easier to find frozen.

Mmmmm! This has to be delicious! Coconut always works for me!

Oh yours looks very pretty! I was a little skeptical of this but Mark loved it and then as I kept eating it, it sort of grew on me and when I finished my several bites, I wished I had more since I made just a small batch. It was something really different...and I can see where it would be an acquired taste for sure.

I thought this was really tasty - I just got around to it now on catch-up week. I think this is a versatile blueprint for quick ice cream. Lots of people I know love blended frozen banana. Would you like that?
