We really liked this! I added some lime zest since it seemed silly to waste it and I love the little green flecks it added to the sherbet. I thought it was a bit sweet especially if the mangoes are really ripe. I will cut the sugar down to a half cup when I make it again.

This was outstanding! The flavor was like biting into a ripe fresh mango with the added benefit of being creamy, frozen, and delicious. The coconut was not too pronounced but gave it a great texture. Loved it and will make again and again.

This was easy and delicious. Even my picky-eaters were asking for seconds. I followed advice of another reviewer and used 1/2 cup of sugar. More would have been too sweet. This is a keeper with maybe another fruit when I can't find a ripe mango.

Wonderful taste! The only thing that should have been mentioned in the directions, was to chill the mango coconut mixture first before putting it into the ice cream machine. I would do this one again, that is for sure!!!

This was wonderful and so easy to make. I didn't toast the coconut though, and just used sweetened coconut out of the bag. But what a wonderful way to use mango!

Excellent recipe and very kid-friendly both to make and eat. My 8 year old niece and her friend helped make this and they devoured it once it was done! The coconut flavor is very mild, but the coconut milk gives it a wonderful creamy texture. Overall it's an easy and refreshing summer treat.

Very good, I used frozen and thawed mangos and one fresh mango. Had some coconut palm sugar on hand so I used 1/2 cup. 3/4 cup of sugar would be very sweet. Loved the toasted coconut on top.

Very good. Easy to make. The taste is unique and addictive. Only complaint is that the sherbert is a bit hard and not as pliable as traditional ice cream (but that's to be expected since it substitutes coconut milk for regular milk/cream). If you put the container in the microwave for approximately 30 seconds, it becomes substantially more malleable. Otherwise it is an excellent, delicious, and healthy dessert!
