I buy my frozen mangoes at Trader Joe's. If you don't have one around, you could use fresh or any frozen that is only mango. Some brands use citric acid as a wash when freezing - usually made from corn these days, not citrus. Go figure!
1 1/2 pound bag frozen mango pieces
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup organic sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
1. Dissolve sugar in water in a medium sized sauce pan. Add the mango, cover, and bring to a boil. Turn down heat so the mango is simmering and cook for about 5 minutes. Let cool.
2. Puree with the lemon juice in a blender. Put in the refrigerator until really cold - at least half a day.
3. Process according to your ice cream maker's instructions. Put in the freezer for a few hours to harden a bit more.
