Made with 3 ingredients, this mango sorbet is so smooth and creamy and that my family kept asking me if there was milk or cream in it, but no it’s completely dairy free. This is a very healthy treat option because it’s made with real mangos, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and a touch of sugar. No canned mango, artificial flavors, colors, or dyes here.

Mango - I used frozen mango chunks, but using fresh mangoes will give this sorbet a really delicious and intense mango flavor.
Cane sugar - To give just a touch of sweetness and a soft texture to this sorbet. If you are using ripe fresh mangos you may not need to add as much sugar.
Lemon juice - Adds a slightly tangy flavor that complements the sweetness and fruitiness of the mango very nicely. Substitute with lime juice for a different flavor.
How to Make Mango Sorbet In A Ninja Creami
All ingredients, measurements, and instructions are in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.
Step one. Add mango chunks, cane sugar, and lemon juice to a blender. If using frozen mango chunks allow them to thaw for at least 30 minutes first.
Step two. Blend everything until smooth then pour it into a Ninja Creami pint container then top with a lid. Make sure the mixture doesn’t go over the max fill line.
Step three. Place the container in the freezer on a level surface to freeze for at least 22 - 24 hours.
Step four. Once frozen, remove the lid then insert it into the Ninja Creami outer bowl then insert into the Ninja Creami ice machine. Press the SORBET button and let it run through the cycle. It usually takes under 2 minutes to complete.
Step five. Remove the pint container from the machine. Your mango sorbet should be nice and creamy, if not, add a splash of juice then run it through the RE-SPIN cycle until it reaches your desired consistency.
Step six. Scoop, serve, and enjoy!
Add a splash of coconut milk or a few pineapple chunks to your mango sorbet for a fun tropical flavor.
Mix in strawberries to give a very fruity flavor and nice color.
Use fresh mangos to give an even stronger intense mango flavor to this Ninja Creami sorbet.
Use this mango sorbet as the base of a smoothie bowl topped with fresh berries, more mango chunks, or granola.
Ninja Creami machine, this is the machine I have.
Pint containers, the machine comes with one pint container. I HIGHLY suggest getting a few more, because 24 hours is a LONG time to wait to make another batch!
Blender, I use this blender for almost everything and it's the perfect size for pint containers.
Citrus juicer, my family and I use this one every day.
Freezer-safe reusable containers, used to store any leftovers.
- Make sure the mango puree doesn’t go over the max fill line.
- Once frozen the mixture might sometimes have a dome top, especially if I filled it right to the max fill line. I like to scrap that off and make sure it leveled before blending inside the Ninja Creami machine.
How To Store/ Make Ahead
Storing. If you have any leftovers I like to transfer them to these ice cream storage containers so I can use my Ninja Creami pint container to make another batch of sorbet!
Freezer. Your sorbet can last for several weeks in the freezer if stored in an air-tight/freezer-safe container.
When you are ready to enjoy your leftovers, allow them to sit on the counter for 5 - 10 minutes before eating, so it won't be as hard and have a creamy texture again.
Make ahead. You can blend the ingredients together and then keep the sorbet base in the freezer until you are ready to blend it in your machine.
Frequently Asked Questions —
Mango sorbet tastes like sweet and creamy dairy-free ice cream with a bold mango flavor.
Yes, it can be. Sorbets are usually dairy free and contain much less sugar and fat than traditional ice cream recipes.
Yes! A lot of times I just frozen fruit instead of fresh because it’s easier. The main thing to keep in mind is to always thaw your frozen fruit before blending and pouring it into the pint container. Chunks of hard fruit can potentially damage the blades of the machine.
Your sorbet could be crumbly if your freezer is too cold. If this happens you can run your sorbet through the RE-SPIN cycle with a splash of juice.
It’s recommended to wait the full 24 hours before processing, but I have blended it after 22 hours and it was fine.
