This Mango Passion Fruit Sorbet is tropical, tangy and light- the most refreshing summer treat that couldn’t be easier to prepare!
Well, I’m back after a brief blogging hiatus, and now I’m officially a Mrs!!! I promise I’ll get to telling you about this refreshing Mango Passion Fruit Sorbet in a minute, but first I have to gush a little bit. Our wedding day was completely and utterly magical; filled with so much love, sunshine, laughter, nerves, anxiety and tears- happy ones of course!
We’re actually kinda sad that after so much planning (and spending- sheesh! Weddings do not come cheap!), poof! It was all over in the blink of an eye. One minute I was walking down the aisle, and before I knew it we were cutting the cake and dancing until the bittersweet end. I tried my best to take several moments to soak in all the good vibes, but I still can’t believe how quickly the day went by. Did anyone else feel the post-wedding blues after their big day was over?
Oh well, I know John and I are eagerly awaiting the photos to come back from our amazing photographer so that we can relive it all over again, and when they do I’m thinking about doing an in-depth post here about the wedding; all the ups and downs and everything I learned from planning my own wedding in only 4 months- eek! Still don’t know how we pulled it off. Let me know if that’s something you’d be interested in reading!
But, big picture: the wedding was just one day, and a long and happy marriage is by far the most important thing to come out of it. We’re definitely basking in the newlywed glow and are so excited to be husband and wife! So to celebrate my return to blogging after the wedding literally taking over our lives, and as a giddy new wifey engulfed in lovey-dovey feels, I thought something with passion fruit would be most appropriate. Also I walked into Whole Foods the other day and a mountain of passion fruit was on sale, so yeah.
And since mango is my most favorite fruit in all the world, I just had to combine these two tropical fruits into one perfect union in this super simple, sweet and tangy Mango Passion Fruit Sorbet.
It’s bright, smooth and would you just look at that vibrant yellow? Like sunshine! What better way to say goodbye to summer than with this tropical frozen treat? You could host a swanky rooftop wedding in Santa Barbara, but trust me, this is way easier.
- 4-6 passion fruits
- 2 large mangoes, peeled, seeded and roughly chopped
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon vodka
- Halve passion fruits and scoop the pulp into a mesh strainer set over a small bowl. Use a wooden spoon to stir the seeds around to release the juice. Discard the seeds. Add the juice to a food processor along with mango, sugar and vodka. Puree until completely smooth.
- Freeze in an ice cream maker, then transfer to an airtight container and store in the freezer until ready to serve.
