Mango Something... (help please? :))

Postby rivenriver » Thu Feb 07, 2008 4:33 pm

Hello!

I've got a couple of lovely fresh mangoes sitting in my fridge, but I can't think how to use them! I think I'd like to make a nice dessert or something, but I can't find anything I like the sound of.

Anyone got a suggestion? :)

At the moment, it's just my Dad and me, so I don't want to make a big cake or anything, just something with 2 serves. ;)

Thanks!

I found 2 mango recipes both Weight watchers ones - I haven't tried them because I don't like mangoes!

Mango and strawberry frozen yoghurt
Serves 4 people (so just halve it)
3 Peeled Mangoes cut into chunks
125g Hulled Strawberries
2 Tbs Fresh lime juice
1 x 175g tub of low fat vanilla yoghurt

Place chunks of mango into a plastic container and freeze for 4 - 5 hours or until frozen
When ready to serve place the strawberries lime juice and yoghurt into a blender
Blend until smooth, adding the mango a little at a time. Spoon into glasses/bowls and serve.

Tropical Mango Creams,
Serves 2 Preparation time 5mins + chilling
145 Calories per serve (its an English book!)
210g can mango (I guess you can subsitute for fresh ones)
100g Quark cheese - (From Wikipedia - "Dictionaries usually translate it as curd cheese. It is soft, white and un-aged, similar to Fromage frais")
Zest and juice of 1 line
4 tablespoons of fat free fromage frais

Puree the mango in a food processor, then beat into the Quark, lime juice and fromage frais. Spoon into serving dishes and decorate with lime zest. Chill and then serve.
