Prep Time:
10 mins
Total Time:
8 hrs 25 mins
3 pints


  • 2 pounds ripe or overripe mangoes (preferably Champagne)

  • Pinch of coarse salt

  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest, for sprinkling, plus ½ to 1 teaspoon lime juice (from 1 lime)

  • Lime wedges, for garnish


  1. Peel mangoes and cut flesh away from pits; discard pits. Cut mango flesh into 1-inch chunks and spread in a single layer on a plastic-wrap-lined baking sheet. Freeze mangoes, uncovered, until hard, at least 8 hours; once hard, mangoes can be transferred to plastic freezer bags and kept frozen up to 2 months.

  2. Remove mangoes from freezer and let soften slightly at room temperature, about 15 minutes. Place mangoes and salt in a food processor; puree until smooth, about 2 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl as necessary. Pulse in juice to taste. Serve immediately, scooped into bowls and sprinkled with lime zest and garnished with lime wedges.
