Layering a sorbet with different flavours?

So for dessert tonight, I thought I'd get ambitious and make a fresh raspberry and mango sorbet.

I made a quick and dirty raspberry the other night with just a bunch of raspberries, some sugar free pina colada syrup, and some crystal light.

This time I thought I'd something similar, but maybe sweeten it up a tinge with Splenda, but also make it half mango. I also thought of using some egg whites to give it a bit more silky texture (found that in another thread).

My theory was simply just to make two layers out of it before I throw it in the freezer - make the mango and then the raspberry (to avoid as much colour interference in the blender as possible).

Any ideas how to achieve this without mucking it up too much?

Make the first flavor and pop it into the freezer. Let it freeze for a bit before you add the second flavor. That time delay should help minimize color transfer.
