Method

  • 01
  • For mango yoghurt sorbet, combine sugar and ½ cup water in a small saucepan and stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves, bring to the boil, then remove from heat and cool. Whisk yoghurt in a bowl until smooth, add ¾ cup sugar syrup and lime juice and whisk to combine. Churn in an ice-cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Meanwhile, process mango, vanilla seeds and a little remaining sugar syrup to taste (you may not need all the syrup, depending upon the natural sweetness of the mango) until smooth. Transfer frozen yoghurt mixture to a bowl, fold through mango purée to form a rippled effect and freeze for 6 hours or until firm. Makes about 1 litre.
