Okay, this is not really sorbet – but it sure tastes like ice cream to me. The mangos are coming in to my local supermarket.
To select a ripe mango, give it a gentle squeeze – it should be soft to the touch like a peach. If it is hard – it is not ripe yet. Ripe ones may be green in color, and/or green with splashes of red. I have not found a correlation between color and ripeness – so you got to squeeze.
1 scoop of vanilla Metabolic Drive
1 cup of ice water (fill cup with ice, then top with cold water)
Cut the meaty “sides” off of the mango. Mango’s have a hockey-puck shapped “pit” in the middle so you can cut the fruit off of the pit in a certain orientation, but not the other (sort of like filleting a fish). Then cut the peal off of your two pieces of fruit. Some people like to peal first – but the fruit is amazingly juice, slippery and sweet.
Run it all through a blender. It will be hard to go back to your regular fruit after you try one of these. Great for breakfast and with oatmeal. Just throw 1/2-cup of cooked oatmeal into the blender with it.
