Lime is the perfect complement to mango. An overripe mango, which can taste a bit vegetably, is easily remedied with a splash of lime juice. I made this sorbet with that in mind. It’s very easy to make and extremely good for you. Just look! There’s barely any sugar!
This is best enjoyed a little soft. Twenty seconds in the microwave will get it the right consistency if it has been in the freezer for longer than five hours.

zest and juice of 1-2 limes

1. Pulse all four ingredients in the food processor (or the blender if you have a really good one), until smooth.
