No machine, easy 4 ingredient Strawberry Mango Lime Sorbet! You only need 10 minutes to make this!
Being your own boss is fun as well as scary. It’s fun because you get to work on your own terms. I feel blessed to have this opportunity where I can work in the comforts of my own home. However the scary part is that it becomes super hard to draw a line. Someday, it feels like I am working 24 x 7 and I don’t know when to stop because there’s no boundary. My husband comes back from work, takes break, watches TV. Now I do that too but in between watching TV, my laptop will always be there next to me and I will scheduling pins or doing some tweets in between. See, hard to know when to stop? I am talking about this because yesterday I kept working past midnight and I just felt too overwhelmed by all of it. Working alone on your own is not easy. Any thoughts/suggestions on how to keep your sanity while working from home? I would love to hear from you guys.
Anyway, I often browse youtube/pinterest to look around for trending recipes and it’s then when I came across these easy no-machine fruit sorbet recipes form Gemma Stafford. I absolutely love her channel and recipes. I thought the sorbet looked too easy to not give them a try and I am so glad I did. Only 4 ingredients and 10 minutes and you will end up with this creamy, refreshing and delicious Strawberry Mango Lime Sorbet.
Mango and strawberries are 2 of my favorite fruits and they also just happen to be in season. So I thought of combining these 2 and also adding in little bit of lime to make it all summer-y and fresh. The sorbet turned out so good, like I cannot believe that something so easy and be so delicious. You only need 4 ingredients to make this.
1. frozen mango, now fresh mangoes would work too but it’s best to use frozen for thicker consistency.
2. frozen strawberries, again like mangoes, use frozen strawberries
3. condensed milk
Just combine everything together in a powerful food processor and you are done. So easy! No ice cream machine, no fancy equipment, absolutely nothing at all. This sorbet is way too refreshing, we ate so much of it during the weekend. It tasted great with some fresh mangoes and strawberries on top!
To a food processor add frozen mangoes, frozen strawberries, lime juice and lime zest.
Add condensed milk and run the food processor for 3-4 minutes or till everything is well combined and mixture looks smooth.
It should have a creamy consistency once done, as you can see in the picture. Transfer to a freezer safe container and freeze overnight.
Serve the strawberry mango lime sorbet with some fresh mango and strawberries and enjoy!
* I ended up using little extra lime zest because I adore lime in sorbet. I used zest of 1.5 limes.
* Adjust condensed milk to taste. You may use 1/4 cup condensed milk to keep it little less sweet.

I love fruity-filled frozen desserts like this waaaaay better than the decadent stuff! You totally NAILED the combo for this gorgeous sorbet, Manali! I want 10 scoops right now!!
Thank you Sarah! The flavors came together quite well 🙂
I work so much harder (and longer) than I did at my regular 9-5 job, but it’s SO worth it, and I wouldn’t have it any other way! This sorbet is just gorgeous, Manali! I love the strawberry mango lime flavor. Just perfect for summer!
I totally agree, blogging is hard work! I wish I knew how to draw a line though. Thanks Gayle!
I love ice cream, but I find sorbet so much more refreshing – especially with flavours like this.
I try to do yoga to relax and it’s really helping me at the moment.
Thank you Dannii! Hope you are doing well!
This sorbet is so beautiful Manali! I love the combination of mango and strawberry. Yum!! I know how you feel about getting overwhelmed too. The best way for me to manage stress is to make sure I practice some yoga and meditation each day 🙂 hope you feel better soon! <3
Thanks you Harriet! Yes I need to do some yoga!
I agree Manali, I feel the same way about being my own boss! I guess we really need to get used to drawing that line 🙂 This sorbet looks so good! Love that you don’t need a machine, will try it soon!
Thank you Mira! Congratulations once again, so happy for you!! <3
It’s the same thing with me for working for myself! It’s SO awesome but can be pretty overwhelming sometimes. Like I’m working right now while also watching TV in the background. It takes SUCH a balance. Anyway, speaking of balance (like balancing two cones of this in both hands haha) I love how simple yet divine this ice cream is Manali! I could totally go for seconds on this!
Thanks Jessica! It does get overwhelming at times. You cannot be everywhere all the time and it gets to you! Let’s hope we can all find a balance!
Wow Manali! This looks so divine. I’ve mastered the art of making Nice Cream. . .given this is similar. . .I think I can whip up my own batch with no problem (and as luck would have it. . . I just cut up some mangos and popped them in the freezer).
As for getting overwhelmed. . .I hear you. I think the key is to razor in on what your one or two goals are and devote your energy towards those goals. . .otherwise you end up spreading yourself too thin and end up feeling like you are chasing a rabbit down a hole. Easier said than done. . .I know.
Thank you Lynn! I have actually never tried nice cream but yeah it’s almost same, super easy to whip up. I need to focus my energy on too many things right now and that’s super tough to balance. Hope to find some sanity! Thanks for your comforting words!
Yum, this looks amazing Manali! So smart to use frozen fruit without an ice cream maker!
This sounds delicious…and easy! Perfect for summer fun! As far as working from home, I ‘pretend’ I’m going to the office and try to work an 8-5 (or 7-4 in my case) day. I do my best to shut down after that and enjoy the evening with my wife. There are days when that doesn’t quite work out, but that’s my goal at least!
Ahh that’s smart! I wish I could do that! I just cannot plan things, I am so bad at it. Thank David!
That’s how I love my ice cream!!
Thank you Angie!
