Mango Sorbet with Strawberry Coulis

We just had a fun day in the sun and it seemed like the perfect way to end a great day was with ice cream. Although I do love ice cream and frozen yogurt, I try to limit the frequency of which I have them. Thankfully I had a bunch of frozen mangoes in my freezer ready to be made into sorbet!! This sorbet is so creamy and rich you wouldn’t believe it’s just mangoes!! I hope you enjoy this as much as we did 🙂

Ingredients for sorbet:

  • Frozen MANGOES!!! I had three small ziploc bags filled. That’s what I used. If it were all chopped up I would say maybe 2 or 3 cups? 

Ingredients for coulis:

  • 1 cup fresh strawberries
  • 1/8 cup coconut oil
  • 1 TBS raw honey

Steps:

  • make coulis first by blending all the ingredients on high until very well incorporated. Set aside.
  • run mangoes through champion juicer with the blank attachment. 
  • Put in bowls and enjoy!!!

This made barely enough for 4 of us. Next time I will add another ziploc bag of mangoes (or two 😉 )

I haven’t tried making this in the food processor like I do my banana ice cream, if anyone tries it, let me know how it turns out!!

Coconut strawberry bliss

My daughter had been asking for some sorbet, and I usually keep a good amount of frozen fruits in the freezer to whip up a batch of sorbet or raw ice-cream. But all I had that day was frozen strawberries. So I looked in my kitchen to see what I could make to satisfy her craving for a treat. Thats when I came up with this quick, easy and delicious Coconut Strawberry Bliss.

  • 1 cup organic coconut milk fat that you get from scrapping off the top of a 13.5 oz can of organic full fat coconut milk. Don’t shake the can or the water and fat will be mixed up and you will get a more watery substance, (which is still delicious, just a different consistency)
  • 2 cups organic frozen strawberries
  • 1 TBS honey (or more to taste)

Put everything in a high speed blender and blend until smooth. I topped it off with some cacao nibs, but I’m sure fresh fruit or just on it’s own would be just as delicious. It took me a total of 7 minutes, including eating it. No not really, but almost 😉 You should get a nice heavy creamy consistency that you can eat with a spoon.

This will give you about 4 portions of about 5 oz each, which is really all you need when indulging in coconut milk fat. That stuff is delicious but rich. Enjoy!image
