About Me

I was a banker who pursued my passion in baking and turned it into a home-based business.I taught Home Economics (HELE) in The Learning Child in Ayala Alabang. I also was a community volunteer and taught arts and crafts and home economics to the children in Virlanie, a non-govt institution that care for streetchildren.

Mango Sherbet

Summer just kicked in and mangoes are in season. Luckily, we have a mango tree in our backyard.

We have "harvested" soooo many, the mangoes just seem to surreally sprout everyday.

I am again using mangoes as the fruit of my sherbet, but then again you can use
strawberries, raspberries etc. I used very ripe mangoes.

I added a splash of Grand Marnier or Cointreau for a kick.

Sooo refreshing during these summer heat days. 

2 cups mangoes (obviously without the pit or seed)
1 cup mango juice or water
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
a teaspoon of lemon juice or calamansi juice
a splash of Grand Marnier or Cointreau (optional)

In a food processor or blender, mix all the ingredients until smooth. Pour into an airtight container and freeze for 2 hours or until firm.

Remove from freezer, whip again. Return to freezer until firm. Serve with fruit if desired.
