I had a sick little boy last week. Poor guy had a super sore throat and it was such a struggle to get him to eat because of the pain. So thats when this Sweet Mango Refresher was born. Complete success.
I wasn’t quite sure what to call this one. It’s like a cross between sorbet, frozen yogurt and a slushy all in one. My kids call it ice cream. I call it a bowl of refreshing bliss.
It’s sweet and juicy tasting and perfect for gobbling up with a spoon. The truth? I may have eaten the majority of the pan myself. Preventative sickness measures I suppose-I mean there are vitamins in here, right?
The ease of this is seriously incredible. A few simple ingredients is all the recipe calls for and it’s sweetened with real honey so you can feel good about it. You blend it all together like a smoothie, pour it into a bread loaf pan and freeze it. And after a few short hours in the freezer it will be ready for scooping and serving.
Kid approved. To the hundredth degree.
And now, if summer would just come. Because I have big plans for this stuff. Think rum. Or tequila. A frozen mango margarita? YES. I’ll take two.
