The twenty-seventh recipe I made with the Eating with Ellie group is Two-Minute Mango Coconut Sorbet, is found on page 283 of Ellie Krieger's cookbook Weeknight Wonders, and was Chaya's pick for the group.
Ingredient list: frozen mango chunks, honey, coconut milk, and basil leaves.
This will be known as the recipe that finally killed off my 38 year old blender, a lovely antique which has been with us since my wedding shower. Somehow it could just not get up enough gumption to completely power through those frozen chunks of mango. Sad to see it go, but it doesn't, as they say, owe me any money at this point. I am happy that I now have a definite contender for the Christmas Wish List. (Feel free to leave comments in the comment section on which new blender I should put on the list.)
This was a fun recipe...only four ingredients, only two minutes of time commitment, and something a little different on the palate. Mark gave it an enthusiastic vote of approval, and while I wasn't certain at the first taste, it does grow on you and leave you wanting just one more bite. I would say it was definitely worthy of a repeat, it was delicious, all mango and coconut and honey and basil, yum.
