Mango-Lime Sherbet (Vegan)
Here's another yummy flavor for my summertime standard, "rice cream." It's made with lots of fruit plus rice milk instead of actual milk--although you could easily use real milk if you want. Like watermelon, mango sherbet can be too bland unless you add an extra flavor, such as lime. And since the sweetness of mangoes varies quite a bit, taste the mixture before freezing, so you can add more honey while it's still possible to blend it in. After the sherbet is frozen, added honey just globs up.
MANGO-LIME SHERBET (VEGAN)
1 lg. mango
2 tsp. lime juice
1-3 tsp. honey or vegan sweetener (to taste)
1 cup rice milk
Peel the mango and cut the fruit off the fibrous central pit area. Be sure to cut off just the soft fruit--chewy mango fibers aren't great in a mouthful of sherbet.
In a large measuring cup, mash the honey, lime juice, and fruit together with a fork or hand-held blender. Taste, and add more honey if needed. Add rice milk up to the 2-cup mark and stir well.
Freeze in an ice cream maker, according to directions. I use a Donvier.
Makes 4 servings, or 2 large servings.
