Mango Nectarine Sorbet


On a scorching hot day, I was craving something sweet and something very cold. Ice cream was the obvious choice, but with no heavy cream in the refrigerator, I started looking for other options. There was a fresh mango on my counter--not quite enough for sorbet. But there was a drawer full of nectarines as well. Combine the two and VOILA! Delicious--mostly nutritious--dessert! 

Mango Nectarine Sorbet
Makes 1 quart 

2 medium nectarines, peeled and sliced
1 large mango, peeled and sliced
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup water
4 tsp lime juice

Combine all ingredients into a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Refrigerate the mixture until thoroughly chilled. Turn on the ice cream maker and pour ingredients into the bowl. Churn 25-30 minutes, or until desired consistency is reached. For a firmer sorbet, freeze for 2-4 hours.
