Strawberry and mango sorbet

Got overripe fruits? Make the easiest dessert ever. Top with whipped cream and a whole cherry and you got yourself a dessert that’s pretty and delicious and, best of all, very inexpensive.

Speedy did this, not me. He was cleaning out the fridge, I guess he didn’t want to throw anything away so he made a sorbet. Even the idea of adding whipped cream and cherries was his.

Recipe: Strawberry and mango sorbet

Ingredients

  • 2 c. of very ripe strawberries
  • 1 c. of very ripe mangoes

    Avocados are also great for making sorbet, though I find it a bit tricky to get the taste right since you could easily overwhelm everything with sugar or milk.

      Yah, avocado is so creamy by itself. Seems overkill to add milk.
