Author Notes: Mango freeze is sort of a sorbet; sort of a frozen yogurt. It is festive on a cone and so appealing on hot and muggy summer days. In her book, Gulf Coast Cooking, Virginia Elverson has collected recipes from Mexico to Florida. This is one of the recipes from Mexico. It is so simple that there is not much to "adapt" except that I advocate using frozen prechopped mangoes because they are so convenient and it is very hard to find good fresh mangoes. Waverly
