    I love using a little alcohol in sorbets and ice creams – it makes them so beautifully soft. This looks absolutely beautiful – (almost) too beautiful to eat :-)

    This looks so delightful. I love mango anything, and I’m almost out of my most recent batch of ice cream, so this may have to be next…

    Mango sorbet is a favorite flavor of mine, and I love what you’ve done here with the bananas, caramel, and pretty pink petals. Beautiful!
