Summer Special: Mango & Mint Sorbet

Temperatures rising, parched throats, and dry eyes are the few signs that says Yes its summers. We tend to stay indoors to avoid the onslaught of the Sun.
To bet this Summer heat, I tried out this Sorbet with the king of Fruit of Summers Mango.

Made with Fresh seasonal fruits and sweetened water a sorbet is different from slush and Icy Granitas. Sorbets can have milk products but is different from ice cream as no air is whipped into it. 
Mang0 & Mint Sorbet

3tbsp simple syrup
Few mint leaves
Juice of 1 lemon juice


  •      Peel the mangoes and cut into pieces.

  •     Churn it till it forms a smooth mixture.
  •     Now place it in a baking dish.
