Place cubed mango in a food processor and purée. Pour in sugar syrup and lime juice and purée until smooth.
Place in an ice cream maker. Freeze thoroughly.
A simple sugar syrup is made with equal parts sugar and water (i.e. 1g sugar for every 1ml water). For 250ml of sugar syrup, combine 175g (6 oz) caster sugar and 175ml (6 fl oz) water in a medium saucepan. Bring to the boil, stirring, until sugar has dissolved. Cool before using.
I dont have a machine either, but make loads of sorbets and ice creams.
I use 2 air tight beakers, pour the mixture in there, pop in the freezer. Every hour, I take them out give them a good shake and stick them back in the freezer. After 3 /4 goes, then pour into dishes and freeze. Simples - 16 Nov 2011
Far too sweet for me, but I'm going to try it again with half the sugar. I do now have an ice cream maker (20 quid off amazon) and I'm trying all sorts... this recipe has definite potential! God help me, I'm gonna be a total lardarse! :D Many thanks - 28 Apr 2012
