Mango Sorbet Recipe, How to make Mango Sorbet out of Juice

Sorbet is a frozen treat that is dairy free, made from sweetened water with flavoring fruit puree. Nearly every mango sorbet recipe contains three items: mango, of course(any fruit), simple syrup, and a little lime juice. 

That's classic mango sorbet, really, really good but with a twist. This mango sorbet is made from left-over mango juice yes you read right...from mango juice ;) :D I love fusion, love to try some creations in recipe make new recipe

At the height of the season, mango is not sweet or nor tasty as compare to last year mangoes were sweet. Unfortunately, this season plenty of Bangalore's Mangoes are artificially ripened, upset and disappointed this season for mangoes. We all are waiting for mangoes, every year but this year we didn't enjoy as we done in earlier season.  

A couple of weeks ago, my husband purchased a mango juice, to enjoy mango in this season. The juice of color, or expiry date caught my attention, and my first instinct was to make some mango drink to sip on during a family gathering, but the following day I realized that I had a lot of mango juice left over. 

Instead of letting it go to waste, I decided to play one over on my family, and make a mango sorbet. Serve it in any form as you like. I made this small-small cute flower shape or you can serve it in a glass.

Typically, sorbet is made with a sugar water or what I call a simple syrup, and it also contains a fruit juice. It is really that simple. So I thought I would use my mango juice to make and create a batch of mango sorbet, and am I glad I did. 

You can make end number of recipes from your leftover like lemon rice, stuffed rice paratha, fusion sambar paratha, yummy curd rice and many more.

Let's begin the step by step process of mango sorbet recipe out of juice with pictures.


Mango juice - 1.5 cups
Water - 2 cups
Sugar - 1.5 to 2 cups (adjust sugar according to your taste)
Lemon juiced - 1 large no

Lemon zested - 1 no

Preparation Method :

1. First, make the simple syrup. To a sauce pan, add the sugar and water, and bring it to a boil, stirring along the way. Once it boils, bring it to a simmer and cook until all of the sugar dissolves, roughly 5 minutes or so.

2. Remove the pan from the heat, and set it aside to cool to room temperature.

3. Add the lemon juice and zest to the simple syrup, and give it a nice stir.

4. Make sure your bowl is completely frozen(in which u freeze your sorbet) before beginning to make the sorbet.
*Tip* - It is always important to do that before making any ice cream, or sorbet.

churn until frozen and slushy. Churn it with the help of fork using light hand.

7. Again freeze until solid, another 2 to 3 hours and churn it. You should do it repeatedly for at-least 3-5 times.

8. Freeze it overnight, next day your mango sorbet is ready to serve. You can scoop it out. Serve chilled !!
