Mango Tango

Or Mango Sherbet, whatever….

I had 2 mangos sitting on the window sill & couldn’t deiced what to do, Then Herb said he was going to get ice cream & that’s when the light bulb went off “bing”
This is so simple to do and really tastes great. Similar to the
Papaya Ice Cream blog but different fruit, go crazy make it with whatever you have or throw in some strawberries or raspberries with the mangos, get creative!!

2 ripe mangos
2 Cups light cream or half & half (extra if needed possibly 1/2 c)
2/3 cup powdered sugar
A blender
A baking dish

Peel the Mangos using a good vegetable peeler.
Cut the fruit off the pit using care, they are slippery once you have peeled them.
(The pit is flat and oblong shaped so cut a piece off so it will sit flat and you can cut around it)
Put the mango pieces & Powdered Sugar in a blender and add the cream.
Turn the blender on high and blend until super smooth
If you notice it is thick and the top does not blend, add a little more cream a few table spoons at a time until it becomes the consistency of a shake or smoothie.
Pour into a baking dish and cover with plastic wrap, ensuring the plastic it touching the mixture.(keeps it from getting ice crystals on the top)
Freeze for 6 hours or until solid.
To serve take it out of the freezer and let it sit for 10 minutes.
Scrape it with a spoon and then scoop.
Top with some mint and a little sprinkling of a special sugar, I have a bunch of different ones and I used Key Lime for a little extra touch.
Because there are no additives it melts quickly so be sure to serve right away or put the bowls in the freezer if you need time.
