Mango Ice Cream and Mango Sorbet

Asked a friend what I should try after the coconut sorbet and she said something with mangoes. Since we spoiled Southern Californians still have them I gave it a try!

Tried mango ice cream first. It wasn’t bad but the sorbet was much better! I think it just depends on if you want something creamy or fruity. Was able to find a recipe that called for honey or agave syrup instead of sugar so that was a plus. I used super ripe mangoes too.

Took a picture of ice cream as it was churning but forgot to take a pic of the finished product!

And the sorbet!

The recipes are both simple and I didn’t make any adjustments except for cutting the honey for the sorbet to half of what recipe called for.
