Easy blueberry mango mint sorbet! Only frozen fruit, coconut milk and mint leaves blended together and chilled. Low calorie, dairy-free, and no added sugar!
This was seriously, so easy.
It literally took me less than 5 minutes to make this blueberry mango mint sorbet in myNutri bullet. And I’m counting the time it took me to walk out to the garage to put it in the extra freezer.
YOU HAVE TO TRY IT!!! You will love it.
At the moment, I’m thinking about not writing this post and instead going back to the kitchen and making a bunch of different flavors and making one big glass with different layers of flavors. This is the best treat for a hot summer day. I know it’s not summer yet, technically but it has felt like summer since March, here in Florida.
Okay, I got myself under control. I will write this post because I have to share the recipe with you all.
We all know that I love a good deal and fresh organic fruit is barely ever “a good deal.” It’s one of those items I splurge on if I get a really good sale price on something else or if I save a lot of money with my coupons that week. So, I have found the best price on frozen organic fruit for you. Costco! Anybody else love Costco? (I secretly love buying in bulk and pushing their giant carts around!) They have 3lb bags of organic frozen blueberries for $12, that’s an amazing price! I also got my frozen organic mango chunks there too, $10 for 3lb.
Blueberry Mango Mint Sorbet
The prep work is very minimal for this recipe. You put the frozen blueberries, frozen mango, coconut milk and mint leaves into a Nutri bullet o high powered blender and turn it on for about a minute. Pour the purple, frozen, slushy, deliciousness into a dish and that’s it!
Of course, I tasted a few spoonfuls. Obviously. Don’t worry about the mint being a strong flavor either. I wouldn’t describe this sorbet as minty at all. The mint gives it a bright, light, extra touch of flavor that I don’t know how to describe it as other than ah-may-zing!
The best part about this sorbet, it has NO extra, added sugar or syrup to flavor it. The awesome flavor and sweetness come from the fruit alone. You know what that means, right? Eat as much as you want!!!
Next was the hard part, putting it in the freezer. It has to freeze for 3-4 (Mine took 4 hours to get the consistency I wanted. Don’t let it go too long or it will completely freeze but all freezers are different, so check at 3 hours.) hours to set up. I currently have 2 hours and 23 minutes left, not that I’m counting down or anything.
I definitely don’t have the timer set on my phone to alert me at the exact moment it should be ready at.
Side note, if you don’t have mango or blueberry, try subbing in different fruits like strawberry & mango or raspberry & peach.
Strawberry watermelon or blueberry cherry would be great too. Get creative! Just don’t leave out the mint! You don’t know what you’re missing! Let me know if you come up with some awesome new flavor combos, I’ll try anything!
- 1 cup Frozen blueberries
- 1 cup Frozen mango chunks
- 1 cup Coconut milk (I used silk)
- 5-6 Small mint leaves
- A dish you can put in the freezer ( I used a snap ware glass dish)
- Get out your blender/food processor/Nutri bullet whatever you want to use.
- Add frozen fruit, and coconut milk to blender.
- Remove mint leaves from the stem and add to the blender.
- Blend for one minute or until completely smooth. (My Nutri bullet is really fast so it may take a few more minutes if you're using a regular blender).
- Check and taste the consistency.
- When smooth, pour into a freezer-safe dish. Cover.
- Freeze for 3-4 hours, check at 3 because your freezer might be colder than mine.
I wouldn’t recommend making a large batch and freezing it for a long period of time. I don’t think it will have the same creamy consistency that it does after just being chilled for a few hours. This recipe is enough for 2 people to each have a large cup.
