Since my adventure with Weight-Watchers, I’ve tried many recipes that will suit my healthy lifestyle.  WW doesn’t mean you have to eat boring food. Not at all, it’s just counting points on a regular day plan. 

My years as a Chef, it was common to make a fresh sorbet during a fancy plate service. The reason for a sorbet is to clean your palate before you have a main course. As well, it’s used as a dessert. 

Please enjoy my version of Orange Mango Sorbet—

Ingredients

4 medium size fresh Oranges peeled ( cut into cubes and remove seeds) 

1 cup of Mango Chunks ( frozen chunks or fresh) 

3/4 cup of brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon 

2 tablespoons of Splenda or Stevia ( optional) 

1 cup of pineapple juice 

1 cup of ice cubes 

Method

  1. In a medium sauce pot, add peeled diced orange chunks, 1 cup of frozen mango chunks and 3/4 cup of brown sugar.  Add cinnamon and if you like 2 tablespoons of Splenda or Stevia. Reason for me is, I like my sorbet sweeter. You may like a more tart sorbet. 
  2. Begin cooking with 1 cup of pineapple juice for approximately 15 – 20 minutes until it’s starts to simmer. Continue mixing it during this time. 
  3. Remove from heat and let sit for 15 minutes.
  4. Put mixture into your blender. 
  5. Add 1 cup of ice cubes
  6. Blend until it’s nice and smooth. 
  7. Strain with a sieve  
  8. Place in shallow pan or glassware.
  9. Place in freezer from 5 – 8 hours depending on your freezer. 
  10. Remove from freezer and using a small ice cream scoop, begin curling up the shaved fruit ice into your preferred bowl. Serve at once ! 

Bon Appetite !
