    Easy Vegan Mango Sorbet

    Today’s self-isolation recipe is an easy Vegan Mango Sorbet and you don’t need an ice cream maker, just a blender or food processor.  In terms of ingredients – all you need is two large ripe mangoes, some maple syrup or honey and 1 lime or lemon.  Make sure that your mangoes are very ripe when you freeze them as that will ensure that the sorbet has a good sweetness.
