It’s mango season in South Africa !

Most of the mangoes in South Africa are produced in the north eastern part of the country with Limpopo Province being the largest producer on 5013 hectares. (I had to give you this information so I can say Limpopo, cutest name ever…)

These juicy, sweet, tropical fruits are very rich in vitamins and minerals like vitamin A, C and E, potassium, carotene and also contain antioxidants that protect against certain types of cancer. Google it up, the list is long !  This recipe here is so easy, there’s no excuse not to whip up a homemade treat that needs basically no added sugar, tastes refreshing and is oh so healthy for you! Mangoes are high in fiber and naturally very sweet so you end up with a very creamy sorbet, almost the texture of ice-cream without the overload on sugar.

What you’ll need to do :

  • Freeze the peeled and diced mangoes
  • Put your frozen mango cubes in a high-speed blender with the rest of the ingredients and mix until you have a very smooth purée
  • Transfer the purée in a container and place in freezer for 2-3 hours. Before serving, let the sorbet soften for a few minutes on the counter then mix it up again in the blender and serve with lime zest or dark chocolate shavings.
