Vitamix Mango Mint Lime Sorbet


Vitamix Mango Mint Lime Sorbet


If you have the pleasure of owning a Vitamix, you are already aware of what a life changing machine it is. Is it cheap? No, not even kind of, but is it worth it? In my opinion, it is worth every single penny. I use it daily, and I am continuously amazed by all it can do. If you can’t imagine a blender being that cool, just take a look at the Vitamix website and you’ll see what I am talking about. While this may seem like a sponsored post, I can assure you that it is not. I purchased my own Vitamix just over a few weeks ago and I am singing its’ praises because it has been a game changer in my daily routine for pretty much every meal.

The recipe I am sharing with you today is one that illustrates exactly why the Vitamix is so incredible. This Mango Mint Lime Sorbet showcases this machines ability to pulverize frozen fruit into the smoothest, creamiest sorbet you’ve ever tasted, all without using anything but frozen fruit, a squeeze of lime for flavor and some freshly picked mint. In my past attempts at making sorbet in my Ninja blender, there was absolutely no way that I could blend up rock hard fruit without the help of some full fat coconut milk or other form of liquid, and unfortunately that resulted in extra calories and unwanted fat. With the Vitamix, I have the ability to make sorbet without the extras, which gives me a delicious cold treat that is nothing more than 100% fruit. No added sugar, creamers or anything that packs on unwanted pounds, and it doesn’t hurt to mention that this is probably the best sorbet I’ve ever tasted.

If you don’t have a Vitamix, don’t fret! You can still make this recipe in a high speed blender, just be sure to add in a little coconut water or coconut milk to help smooth it out.  Unsweetened, full fat coconut milk is what seems to work best texture-wise when making sorbet in blenders that aren’t as powerful, so just add in 3/4 cup to the recipe.

If you have a Vitamix, simply add in the juice of 1 lime, several leaves of mint (about 4 or 5) and 3 cups of frozen organic mangos with no sugar added…

If your model has the ‘frozen desserts’ option, simply turn the dial to ‘frozen desserts’ and press start (yes, I am aware it is on the ‘smoothie’ option)..

If your Vitamix does not have the ‘frozen desserts’ option, select Variable 1, then slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High, using the tamper to press the ingredients into the blades. In about 45 to 55 seconds the sound of the motor will change and four mounds should form.

And there you have it! Simple, all-natural, 100% fruit sorbet in under a minute!
