  • Serves: 4-6
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes plus overnight freezing
  • Effort: easy



  • 225 g sugar
  • 225 ml water
  • 3 medium mango, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 1 small melon, halved and seeded
  • zest and juice of 1 navel oranges


1. Combine the sugar and water together in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and place syrup in freezer to cool quickly while you prepare the fruit.

2. Purée the mango chunks in a food processor and set aside.

3. Purée the melon in the same way.

4. Blend mango and melon purées together in a bowl. Stir in chilled sugar syrup, orange zest and juice and place in refrigerator until well chilled, about 30 minutes.

5. Pour into a shallow tray and place in the freezer. When the sorbet begins to freeze around the edges, stir well. Continue stirring every hour for 2 or 3 hours, until the mixture has frozen solid.

6. Cover, and let the sorbet continue to freeze overnight.

7. Let the sorbet stand at room temperature to soften slightly before serving.
