Ingredients

  • Zest and juice (about 80ml)
  • 3-4 limes
  • 300g caster sugar
  • 4 large ripe mangoes (about 950g), skin and stones removed, flesh roughly chopped
  • 1 medium free-range egg white

Method

  1. Gently heat the lime zest, juice and sugar in a heavy-based pan with 150g water until the sugar dissolves. Turn up the heat, bring to the boil and simmer for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Whizz the mango in a blender until smooth. Add the sugar syrup and whizz until combined. Leave to cool, then pour into a sealable container and freeze until solid. Remove from the freezer, leave until soft enough to spoon into a food processor, then add the egg white and whizz until smooth. Return to the container and freeze until ready to use. Take out of the freezer 5 minutes before serving.
