'Mango Mango' Sorbet July 12 2014

'Mango Mango' Smoothie

The verdict is in... 

When we first asked, we thought for sure the mint would be our favorite. The mint is very nice but powerful and overtook the mango as some of you suggested. The basil is better; delectably subtle and refreshing. The ginger is the best; the taste is enticing and luscious. Our vote #3 Mint #2 Basil and #1 Ginger
