Mango sorbet with olive oil

Mango sorbet with olive oil

Prepare to be blown away by this flavour pairing. Sweet, fragrant mango with rich, grassy extra virgin olive oil—a dessert you won't stop thinking about.

Time to get your hands on some seasonal mangos! Ok, but what is the craze all about?

Well, the Alphonso variety is available only for a very short period of time each year and it has got a superior texture and flavour—you can literally taste the sun. Though not local, it is one of our favourite ultra-seasonal fruits and such a big treat. They are delicious on their own but take them to the next level by whizzing them into a sorbet with some extra virgin olive oil. Here's the method:

Here's how to make it:

Serves 3-4

  • Roughly chop up your mangos.
  • Mix them with lemon juice, sugar, olive oil and a pinch of salt. 
  • Blend all the ingredients together in a Nutribullet or equivalent and... that's it!
  • Enjoy with a glug of EVOO on top. 
Ways to make your own:
  • Add freshly torn mint on top.
  • Infuse ice cream with some hibiscus tea.
  • A bit of chilli could spice things up!
