Mango Daiquiri Sorbet

Mango Daiquiri Sorbet

Ripe mangoes and rum create a grown-up frozen treat that is the perfect complement to Latin and Caribbean fare.


Use ripe mangoes to create this light and fruity sorbet that scoops up beautifully and is easy to make. A splash of rum turns it into a grown-up favorite that is the perfect accompaniment to Latin and Caribbean fare. Serve the sorbet in a frozen parfait glass or mango boat, made by scooping out the centers of halved mangoes and freezing the shells.
