Mango and banana sorbet ... in the Thermomix

Mangoes are in season right now and we have been buying them by the boxful because we love them. Usually, I slice them up and freeze them and then it's like eating a frozen mango popsicle which is very yummy on a hot day as a snack.

I bought some mangoes about a week ago but decided that I would make some mango sorbet instead.

Today, I finally dragged the mangoes out of the fridge and with The Boy's help cut them up for making sorbet. We also had an overripe banana sitting around and decided to throw that into the mix as well. It's not an exact science!

The Boy has been wanting to learn how to use the Thermomix for a while and we thought that making the sorbet would be a good start for him. It is a fairly easy and straight forward process.

Here's the RECIPE for our mango and banana sorbet:


  • Place the mangoes, ripe banana, icing sugar and egg white into the Thermomix bowl. Add 1 package of the Creative Gourmet Smoothie Cubes in mango and banana into the bowl as well.
  • Blend on speed 10 for 30 seconds.
  • Put the other package of the Creative Gourmet Smoothie Cubes in mango and banana into the bowl as well as the ice cubes and blend again on speed 10 for 30 seconds.
  • Check the sorbet and smooth any sorbet that has puffed up above the blade and created an air pocket back into the bowl.
  • Then blend again on speed 10 for another 30 seconds. This will ensure that that ice cubes are completely gone and the sorbet is super smooth.

This made a really creamy and tasty sorbet. The banana really smoothed out the texture of the sorbet and made it very delicious. I wanted to just eat the whole tub there and then. As it were, I took a few spoonfuls after we put them into containers to go into the freezer. In fact, it was so good that The Boy while licking out the Thermomix bowl forgot to offer me some and I had to ask if he was going to share. :-)

It's a pity that mangoes are only in season in the summer time, but for sure, whenever it's summer, we will be making this dessert.

I definitely recommend this recipe.

  1. Nothing like a cold treat on a warm day!

  2. oooh... lucky you! Mangoes are never in season where I live :( We have to make do with frozen mango pieces which are far inferior to fresh. I so wish I were there instead of here!

    1. We're fortunate, we get a good solid few months of mangoes. We buy them by the case when they are at the peak because they are really cheap and then I just make sorbets, or freeze them.
