This fresh, tropical sorbet recipe calls for an ice-cream maker, so it may be best to borrow one if you do not currently own one. Make sure to invite the lender on over for a tasting party once the sorbet is ready!

1 20-ounce can of lychees in syrup
2 cups well-blended sweetened cream of coconut (preferably Coco Lopez brand)
3 T. fresh-squeezed lime juice
2 large firm-ripe mangos, peeled and sliced
1 T. superfine sugar
1 tsp. finely grated lime zest
Drain the lychees, reserving the syrup, then puree the lychees, cream of coconut (do not use coconut milk or coconut cream), 3 cups of the lychees syrup, and 2 T. lime juice in a bender until smooth.
Place the lychees/coconut mixture together into ice-cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s directions.
While the sorbet is churning, toss together the mango, lime zest, sugar, and remaining (1-2 T.) lime juice to taste.
Serve scoops of sorbet over the macerated mango slices.
