Fresh Mango Sorbet

A few weeks ago, Thai mangoes were going real cheap in the fruit stalls. It was even cheaper in Giant Hypermart. I could not resist buying 10 whole mangoes for just $5.99. But what am I going to do with that whole lot?
Well, on a hot day, who wouldn't mind a whole scoop of cold refreshing sorbet. Yes! I am using those mangoes to make some mango sorbet. I flipped my book by David Lebovitz: The perfect Scoop and adapted my recipe from there.
