A small cookie scoop, available at discount stores, will let you portion the sorbet accurately, giving your guests just a little something sweet after the meal.

How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together first 4 ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat; cook, stirring constantly, 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve over sorbet; sprinkle with gingersnaps.

Yummy! Followed the recipe as written. Light and refreshing and got lots of compliments on a hot summer night.

This is a quick, colorful, satisfying summer dessert. Plus the flavors and the presentation are creative. I have used both sorbet and sherbet on different occasions and either one works well. Presents well enough to use after any kind of meal. A keeper!

Fabulous and delicious topping. I served it at a luncheon for friends with mango ice cream rather than sorbet. I found ginger cookies with real ginger bits at Trader Joe's and used those as suggested. This dessert makes a lovely presentation and tastes every bit as good as it looks. It is different from the usual dessert fare.

We loved this recipe. Easy! Never had mango sorbet before and was a little concerned that it might be too "exotic" for the kids. But, the combination of mango, blk berry and gingersnap is wonderful. They loved it. Small portion is all you need after a great meal. Highly recommend this recipe. Try it.
