Mango-Lime Ice
4 large mangoes, fruit cut away from pit, peeled, and chopped
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
zest of 1 orange (colored rind only, no white pith)
1 cup water
1/3 cup honey (optional)

Combine ingredients in a food processor and whip until smooth. Strain
mixture into a stainless steel bowl. Freeze 2 hours until firm. Whip with a
wire whisk or an immersion blender. Repeat the freezing and beating process
2 more times. Freeze 1 hour before serving. Best eaten within a day. If ice
has been in freezer a long time, soften in fridge for 1/2 hour before

Note about mangoes: Choose perfectly ripe mangoes that smell "mango-ey" and
yield to gentle pressure. Skin should not be wrinkled. Remove the mango from
the pit *before* peeling off the skin. Cut an "x" around the whole fruit,
making four sections. Insert paring knife against the pit and pry each
section off of the pit. Be careful, mango flesh is very slippery but holds
fast to the large flat pit.
