Introduction: Easy Mango Watermelon Sorbet

About: Creative Design Enthusiast

What a better way to cool off hot summer days with some delicious sorbet. This recipe brings two of best summers showstoppers - Mango and Watermelon to make one refreshing bright sorbet. Even better if you can make it yourself with fresh/frozen fruits in a few easy steps. The recipe is dairy free, gluten free, vegan with no added sugar. Also, there is not need for an ice cream churning machine.

What I love about this sorbet is the bright colors of Watermelon intertwining with the mangoes paints a picture of of a beautiful summer sunset.

In this instructable, you will find a simple recipe and steps to make the Mango Watermelon Sorbet and some tips and recipe alternatives.

Supplies

Fresh or frozen Mango, Watermelon, Chopping board, Knife, Cup, Blender, Container.

Step 1: Gathering Tools and Ingredients

Ingredients

1. Mango chunks ( You can use fresh or frozen mangoes)

2. Water melon chunks

Optional Ingredients

1. Fresh Lime Juice - I like to use fresh lime juice drops when serving, gives a nice citrus kick.

2. Sweetener - Sugar/Honey/Maple Syrup - As needed. See note.

Note

Use any of the sweetener if you think you need your sorbet a little bit more on the sweeter side. Always taste your fruits and adjust sweetness accordingly.

Tools

1. Chopping Board

2. Knife

3. Cup or Bowl for measuring

4. Blender

5. Container

Step 2: Cut Fruits

Mango

1. Wash Mangoes.

2. Peel off the skin.

4. Remove the seed.

3. Cut mango into cubical chunks.

You can always use frozen mango chunks as well.

Watermelon

1. Wash watermelon.

2. Slice off the skin.

3. Cut watermelon in cubical chunks.

4. Remove seeds, if any.

Step 3: Measure Fruits

Mango - 2 Cup

Watermelon - 2 Cups


Note

The ratio for this recipe is is 1:1.

I have used 2 cups of Mango for 2 cups of Watermelon.

This recipe will yield about 3 cups of Sorbet. Feel free to adjust the recipe a you may like.

Step 4: Freeze Fruits

1. Freeze Mango Chunks in the freezer for about 7 hours until they are almost solid.

2. Freeze Watermelon Chunks in the freezer for about 7 hours.

Note

Do not freeze the fruits together in the same container. It will be difficult to separate the chunks when they are frozen. The idea behind this recipe is to overlay the fruit purees and blend them to get a bright mosaic pattern rather a unified color.

Step 5: Blend Fruits

Watermelon

1. Place frozen Watermelon Chunks in a Blender or a food processed.

2. Blend watermelon chunks into a puree

3. Scoop out watermelon puree in a container.

Mango

1. Place frozen Mango Chunks in a Blender or a food processed.

2. Blend Mango chunks into a puree.

3. Scoop out mango puree and top it on the watermelon puree.

Step 6: Create a Swirl

Once both the mango and watermelon purees are placed in the container, use a fork/knife to create swirls/marble effect.

Note

Do not mix too much.

Step 7: Final Freeze

1. Freeze the puree (sorbet) mixture in the freezer for 30 minutes.

2. Take it out and let it sit in room temperature for 10 minutes.

3. Scoop and serve as you may like

4. Freeze the rest.

    I made something like this with watermelon and papaya, but it was frozen for weeks before I remembered. Had to thaw it for about an hour before I could "scoop" with a fork! Ha ha! It was "delishious" though!

    Haha I can imagine. I am glad it tasted delicious though. I also read a tip somewhere that, during freezing, if we scrape the surface every hour, you disturb the water that freezes on top so its not too icy. Will try it next time and see if it works :)

    Ooh, good point and you'd get cool from being near the freezer, too!
