This dessert is a cross between a sherbet and a sorbet. It's so unusual that will knock your socks off. It has a lot of flexibility that you can easily alter to how you like it.

I did not like this recipe. The milk consistency the flavor of the flour and corn starch everything was wrong. Making this simple would've made this better. When you have a good mango you don't disguise the flavor. I should know I grow mangos and avocados but when I saw this recipe I became curious. It was such a waste of time and ingredients........

My "large pot" wasn't big enough. But I followed the directions froze it went back to it and I couldn't scoop it out of the dish. If I let it thaw a bit it will be fine. Read More

Very good and I didn't have to buy any fancy ingredients. It was really creamy and sweet. Probably next time I'll use less sugar. Read More

Not bad but not a favorite. I followed the recipe exactly and the ingredients. Still came out a little ice block to me. Maybe it would be cool to use this a flavored ice cube in a fuity drink. You have to use heavy cream or whole milk or it will be a block of ice. Read More
