This refreshing frozen treat of sweet mango nectar accented with lime juice is easily prepared without any special equipment.
Yield: serves 6-8

Ingredients

  • 4 cups bottled or fresh mango juice or nectar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 12 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp. fresh lime juice

Instructions

  1. Heat 2 cups mango juice, sugar, and salt in a 2-qt. saucepan over medium-high heat, and cook, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, and stir in remaining mango juice and lime juice; let cool. Pour into an 8″ x 8″ baking dish and place in freezer. Freeze, scraping and stirring mixture thoroughly every hour as ice crystals form, to prevent it freezing into a solid mass, until mixture is the consistency of shaved ice, about 4 hours. Spoon into chilled bowls to serve.
