Cool and creamy with a vibrant mango flavor, this mango-coconut sherbet is a must make for tropical fruit lovers. Fresh lime juice brightens up the sherbet and balances the sweetness of the mango – if you like a more pronounced zing, then add the zest as well. A sprinkle of toasted coconut adds texture and makes a delectable topping.
