Preparation time: 10 minutes

Serves 4


500g frozen mango chunks

100ml coconut water

1 tbsp caster sugar (optional)

200g fresh raspberries

100g fresh coconut shavings

Fresh mint to garnish 


  1. Place half of the mango into the bowl of a food processor and add the juice and zest of the lime. Begin to process the mango and juice and gradually add a little coconut water until you form the sorbet. Taste and if you want to add a little sugar do so at this point. Gradually add more mango and coconut water until you achieve the consistency you like.
  2. Place a few raspberries in the bottom of a tall glass and spoon the mango sorbet on top. Decorate with more raspberries, shaved coconut and fresh mint.
