I can’t believe it’s already July. We’ve been stuffing ourselves full of grilled meat, farmers’ market vegetables, melon, and frozen blender treats like that mango sorbet up there.

Do you need an ice cream maker to make mango sorbet?

Nope. No ice cream machine needed.

It’s so nice to be able to make a frozen treat without dragging out the ice cream maker. Using a high-powered blender like a Blendtec or a Vitamix is the easiest way, but if you don’t have a blender like that — no worries. I got you.

What’s in mango sorbet?

The nice thing about mango sorbet (or any frozen fruit sorbet) is that it’s really low key.

You don’t need to make a simple syrup or do anything fancy. All you need are four things:

  1. Frozen Fruit
  2. Some kind of liquid, like milk or juice
  3. Something acidic, like citrus juice to brighten the flavor.
  4. Sweetener (optional — you may not even need this!)

If you use pineapple juice it takes care of three of these requirements — liquid to help with blending, acidity to help the flavor, and a boost of sweetness.

We have at least five different kinds of fruit in the freezer on any given day, just waiting to be made into a smoothie or a quick sorbet or ice cream-type thing.

We ALWAYS have frozen strawberries (mmm, strawberry sorbet is so good) and frozen mango. Sometimes blueberries or a berry mix. Or pineapple.

And if we’re not in the mood for fruity and there happens to be a ripe avocado sitting around (there usually is) we make Paleo Chocolate Ice Cream instead. That alone makes having a powerful blender worth it to me. I use it literally every day for different things. I love it.

What Makes Mango Sorbet Creamy?

Well, mangoes.

Some fruit has a natural tendency for creaminess. Bananas and avocados are other “creamy” fruits.

Usually I add avocado or coconut cream for the creamy component, but some fruit has a naturally creamy consistency. Mangoes are one.

So are bananas, but I’d rather eat beef liver than a banana. *Shudder*

For the liquid I typically use a combination of almond/coconut milk and some fruit juice.

Pineapple, orange juice, and pomegranate juices are great because they’re tart and they brighten up the flavors. And it doesn’t take much. You could also use lemon juice or lime juice, but just a pinch or it’ll be too tart.

We usually eat it straight out of the blender, but if you, for some crazy reason, need to wait to eat it, it’ll freeze alright. Just let it soften some before you start scooping.

Watch how easy it is to make!

TIP: Freeze the container you plan to store it in BEFORE you put the sorbet or ice cream in it. It’ll freeze much more quickly and reduce the amount of iciness in the sorbet.

And make sure you have plenty of mangoes in the freezer because if you’re feeding more than four people you’re going to need to make more. Good thing it only takes five minutes!

Is Mango Sorbet Healthy? Is it Paleo?

I suppose it depends on your definition of healthy. Healthy is such a subjective topic, right?

If you’re looking for whole-food based recipes, then yes, this fits the bill. And technically it IS paleo.

However, mangoes and pineapple juice contain a large amount of sugar. Yes, it’s natural sugar, but it’ll still make your blood sugar skyrocket.

This is definitely not a keto/low-carb recipe, if that’s what “healthy” means to you.

I love it because it’s simple, easy, and whole-food based. I’d much rather have my kids eating this than anything they get from the ice cream man.

Sorbet is an “icy” Italian dessert that is usually dairy-free and fruit-forward. But today, instead of using an ice cream maker and waiting hours for the finished product, we’re using frozen fruit and a blender to make things really simple and fast.

This specific recipe is full of tangy sweet mangos, creamy bananas, and lime juice for a touch of acidity! You’ll find each bite is perfectly sweet and so refreshing.

Ingredients – What You Need

You’ll need 4 simple ingredients to make this recipe. See below for the full list and ingredient tips!

Mango: Use store-bought frozen mango pieces or freeze your own!
Bananas: Bananas are used to make this sorbet a little creamier. Freeze your own banana pieces overnight or use store-bought!
Lime: for some acidity and flavor! Lime goes perfectly with the mango flavor.
Maple syrup: for a touch of sweetness!

How to Make Mango Lime Sorbet (without an ice cream maker)

First, add the frozen bananas, mango, lime juice, and maple syrup to a food processor or high-powered blender.

Pulse and puree. Ingredients will first break down into small chunks. Shut off the machine and remove the lid to stir ingredients – turn back on and continue to blend. It may seem like the mixture needs liquid but it will continue to smooth out as it blends.

When the sorbet is done, the consistency should be super creamy and smooth. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Tips for Success

Blender vs food processor – both will give you great results. A blender (typically a vitamix) will give you fast results – about 2-3 minutes. A food processor works just as good but takes a bit longer – about 4-5 minutes.

Freeze your own fruit – you can use store-bought frozen fruit or freeze your own for an even sweeter taste! I recommend using ripe bananas (lots of brown dots) and a very ripe mango. The fruit will need to be frozen overnight to ensure it’s solid enough.

Remember: No liquid is needed – it may look like you’ll need liquid to help bind the ingredients while they’re in the blender, but fear not. Over time the frozen fruit will break down and turn into a creamy dreamy consistency!

Topping ideas – you can add fresh mango or banana pieces to the top of your sorbet! Chocolate chips and chopped nuts are also delicious.

Freeze for later – if you don’t serve this right away, immediately transfer sorbet to a glass airtight container and freeze for several hours before enjoying.
