Did you know that you can make this cool, refreshing mango sorbet soft serve in just a few minutes?
This sorbet contains no artificial flavors or colors and no added sugar, because there’s only ONE INGREDIENT: Frozen Organic Mango Chunks!
How is it done? We’ll show you using two different methods.
The first method is the easiest, because it uses the DESSERT BULLET: a powerful, inexpensive little machine that does all the work for you. (See the second method below if you don’t have the dessert bullet.) It’s so simple: Just put the partially thawed mango chunks in the top of the machine, and soft serve sorbet instantly comes out the bottom- ready to eat! Check it out in this video:
1. It comes with a SWIRL tip, so you can make your sorbet look just like it came from a soft serve machine. (See tips below to get a similar swirl, if you don’t have the dessert bullet.)
2. It doesn’t get clogged during operation, as other machines tend to do.
3. Its super easy to clean- comes apart easily, and the parts go right into the dishwasher.
4. Its less expensive than other similar machines.
5. It has a small footprint, for simple storage.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: We’ve just been informed that the manufacturing of the DESSERT BULLET is being discontinued as of JUNE 30th, 2017. But it is still available new and used from various third party sellers, (while supplies last) or look for it on ebay, craigslist, or at garage sales.
‘Don’t have the DESSERT BULLET? Its ok, you can still make delicious one ingredient mango sorbet using the second method: Just let the bag of frozen mango chunks sit out on the counter for about 20 minutes. Then put the partially thawed mango chunks into your BLENDTEC or VITAMIX (or other high speed blender) and process till smooth, using the ice cream setting. Scoop the sorbet into cones or dessert dishes using an ice cream scoop and serve immediately. Alternately, you can spread the sorbet into a small sealable container and refreeze for longer storage. When you are ready to serve, take the container out of the freezer and let it sit on the counter for about 15-20 minutes until it has softened, and the sorbet is ready to scoop.
You can also pipe the smooth frozen mango sorbet into dessert dishes or shot glasses, alternating with diced strawberries if desired. Then cover and refreeze the filled dishes in the freezer until ready to serve. (Will keep covered in the freezer for up to 2 months.)
When ready to serve, simply pull the dessert dishes or glasses out of the freezer and let them sit on the counter for about 20-30 minutes to soften. Garnish with additional fruit if desired and serve.
TIP: If you want a SWIRLED appearance to your mango sorbet but don’t have a DESSERT BULLET, just puree the semi-frozen mango chunks in your high speed blender till smooth, then transfer the semi-frozen puree to a pastry bag with an EXTRA LARGE open star tip. This method is a little more work, but it is an alternate way to create the same swirled presentation, for those who don’t have the DESSERT BULLET machine.
And if that sounds like too much trouble (with extra steps and clean-up afterwards) you can always just scoop it! It still tastes just as cool and refreshing! And you can make the pre-scooped desserts ahead of time too, to pull out of the freezer later when guests drop in for a visit!
Whatever method you use to make this one ingredient mango sorbet, we know you are going to LOVE IT!
One Ingredient MANGO SORBET (Soft Serve)
The perfect healthy treat for a hot summer day!
- 1 16 oz. bag organic frozen mango chunks (Look for bags containing the darkest orange colored mango chunks, for a naturally sweeter sorbet.)
- Take the bag of Frozen Mango Chunks out of the freezer and let it sit on the counter for about 15-20 minutes, until partially thawed.
- Fit the DESSERT BULLET with the STAR TIP. Plug it in and turn it on.
- Place about 1 cup partially thawed mango chunks into the top of the DESSERT BULLET, or other similar machine.
- Press down on the tamper to push the mango chunks into the machine. You should see swirls of mango sorbet starting to come out of the star tip. Catch the sorbet in an ice cream cone, dessert dish, or shot glass. Turn off the machine when you are finished filling your dishes or cones.
- Serve mango sorbet immediately, or freeze filled dishes or glasses to serve later. When ready to serve, take filled dishes or glasses out of the freezer and allow to sit on the counter for about 20 minutes, or until soft enough to eat. Re-freeze any leftover mango sorbet.
ALTERNATE PREPARATION: (High Speed Blender)
- Take the bag of Frozen Mango Chunks out of the freezer and let it sit on the counter for about 15 minutes, until partially thawed.
- Pour the entire bag of partially thawed mango chunks into the jar of a high speed blender. Place the lid on top and blend using the ice cream setting, or a mid-range level blend setting. Continue to blend for about 1 minute, or until the sorbet is very smooth.
- The sorbet will be VERY SOFT at this point. You can scoop it directly into cones or dishes and serve immediately, or you can press the sorbet into the bottom of a freezer safe container and freeze for at least 2 hours or longer. When ready to serve, remove the container from the the freezer and allow it to soften at room temperature for 15-20 minutes. Scoop the sorbet into cones or dessert dishes using an ice cream scoop, and serve immediately. Re-freeze leftovers. (Frozen mango sorbet will keep covered in the freezer for up to 2 months.)
- If you want to create a SWIRL design in the sorbet to resemble soft serve ice cream, transfer the freshly blended sorbet to a large pastry bag fitted with an extra large open star tip. Working quickly, twist the end of the bag to close, and use gentle hand pressure to pipe the sorbet into cones or dessert dishes. Serve immediately, or freeze filled dishes to save for later. (If desired, alternate layers of sorbet and diced strawberries in glass dishes or shot glasses to make a pretty parfait.) Frozen sorbet piped into dessert dishes will keep covered in the freezer for up to 2 months. When ready to serve, bring frozen filled dishes out of the freezer and allow them to soften on the countertop at room temperature for about 20 minutes before serving. Re-freeze leftovers.
