I’m pretty much a produce freak.

I blame it on food blogging, but secretly, I know I’ve pretty much always been this way. 

I go seriously crazy trying to find the most perfectly ripe (but not over-ripe) mango, I must pick up and press on every single avocado, and I’m that weird-o knocking on watermelons while trying to hold them up to my ear. And somehow I never pick out the best watermelon, go figure. The husband? He’s a watermelon-picking-pro. Every single time he’s picked out a watermelon it’s been pretty much the best one ever. His technique? He just grabs one and puts in the cart.

I keep telling him, he could make a serious career out of perfect produce picking. I’d pay some serious dollars for that…

He was done right when I put him in the shopping cart. So, naturally, I had to hurry my quickest. I used the husband’s technique – just grab the produce and go.

I’m telling you – it totally works. I got the very best mango I’ve ever had. And the pineapple? Dripping with flavor. Literally – the juice was just dripping out of it as I cut it. Mmmmm.

And with some of the best ever produce, it made for some killer sorbet. I’m talking fresh, smooth, and flavor. Plus the sugar doesn’t hurt it either :)

Also, I finnnnally got an ice cream maker!!! I’ve been wanting one for-ev-er, but it just wasn’t super practical in our itty-bitty apartment at college, nor in our studio apartment in Boston, … but now? Oh it’s more than practical. The awesome people at Cuisinart let me try their 2-quart pure indulgence ice cream maker and I am completely in love with it. Not only is it sleek looking, but it’s super quick and the ice cream, frozen yogurt, and sorbet tastes perfect-o. I’m pretty sure I’ve used it at least every other day since getting it in the mail. AND because I love it so much, and Cuisinart is SO awesome, they are letting me give one away to a very lucky reader! So, after the recipe, make sure to enter to win one. Oh, and sometimes the entry widget it slow to load, just a heads up :)

P.S. Even if you don’t win the ice cream maker, you’ve GOT to make this sorbet. It’s diiiii-vine.

    Love this giveaway! My Mother in Law actually just mailed me some mangos and they were delish. One was ripe and we used it for Margaritas. The other is still getting there and would be perfect for this :)

    Chelsea – this is so weird! I just bought an ice cream maker and I was thinking of making Coconut Sorbet! Girl, you’ve got to get out of my head! :-) This looks divine and I love the mango, pineapple addition to the coconut! Yum! Pinned!

    It takes me forever to pick produce I want the best, most perfect looking everything. I’ve been going crazy making ice creams and frozen yogurt. It’s the perfect summer time treat. I love your recipe. It is such a beautiful color!

  8. says

    I’m the same way with fruit too but have no luck when it comes to picking watermelon for some reason. Maybe I should try the grab and go method next time too:). But yay for a new ice cream maker! Love that you made a tropical sorbet, the color looks gorgeous!

  9. says

    I want to win! We have an ice cream maker, but I don’t really love it. I’ve heard great things about this one. This looks awesome by the way — love anything with mango! I’m terrible at picking out produce though. Especially mangoes!

  10. says

    Heh, I’m also a produce freak -but I kinda like it! This sorbet looks SO refreshing for summer. And the colour is just gorgeous. I think I need to try this grab and go fruit technique as well :)

  11. says

    My mom is the exact same with produce as you are. As for me.. even though I worked at a grocery store for 5 years, I don’t know how to pick out the perfect fruit. I’m more like your husband: throw the first one I see into the cart.
    This looks delicious by the way. I need this before summer is over.
