Catching Up...Frozen Treats

Sorry we sort of dropped off the face of the earth for a while (we apologize to the five people who actually keep up with this blog). Things have been kind of hectic, which means we have lots to blog about. So, the next several posts will be about some things we've done since the last time we posted.

So, first we'll catch up on some frozen treats we made over the summer before it gets colder and you don't want to think about frozen things for a while.

We got a case of mangoes (10 count) for $3.99, so we made some mango sorbet:

It was really good and thick (the recipe called for light corn syrup). We also got some limes for 10/$1, so we made some lime sorbet:

We used the recipe we've used for lemon sorbet to make the lime sorbet. It was pretty tart, but good. Although, we like the lemon sorbet a bit more.

And last, but not least, we made a few batches of coffee ice cream (which was our favorite until the mocha chip idea we posted about before):

We made lots of batches of mocha chip in between (and are still making it). Obviously, we recommend investing in an ice cream/sorbet/frozen yogurt maker if you tend to buy ice cream. It'll probably save you some money in the long run and you can experiment with flavors you might not find at the store (and it's slightly better for you--at least, that's what we like to tell ourselves).
Any suggestions for recipes to try? (We just might try them and post about them!)
