Orange & Mango Sorbet

By Pielove, member

February 2nd, 2009

We were very excited that the weather got above freezing here in Chicago, so it was the perfect day to try this refreshing tropical sorbet.  I was out of blood oranges, so this is really a mixed citrus sorbet with tangerine, orange, and lemon juice.  We like things zippy, so I added more lemon juice than the recipe called for.  The mangoes we got were not super-ripe, but this sorbet has a good strong mango flavor, combined with a great citrus zing.  Also the texture is smooth and creamy and it is not overly sweet.  I noticed later that I had forgotten the citrus zest-- from reading others' comments, I think that actually made for a better texture-- bonus!

I could see having this with some prosecco poured over the top-- or ginger ale for the kiddie set. We will probably make this again and pack it into popsicle molds.
