Mango and Passion Fruit Sorbet

We get passion fruits in abundance here in Abidjan. And it’s daringly cheap. Last time I got almost 2 kg of them at a mere 2000 Fcfa. These fruits are unbelievably sour but punch them with some sugar and lemon juice...and it’s the beautiful mocktail you can ever get. Mango and Passion fruit...two favourite tropical fruits...almost complement each other in their taste and flavour. And their combination is undoubtedly the best when I think of any dessert. So...Mango and Passion fruit sorbet it is.
