Foolishly In Love with Mango Fool

Wednesday, October 6, 2010


Sweet, juicy, succulent, with an irresistible aroma and golden appearance; it comes as no surprise why mango is touted as the “queen of fruits.” Served a la carte or mixed with other ingredients to make a delectable dessert, it has never failed to please the palate, especially mine. Unconsciously, I never realized how madly in love I am with mangoes until my cousin pointed out that all the desserts I serve during family gatherings include them. Although true, I don't think anyone who has ever had a taste of any of my treats ever complained. What with the delicious sweet taste of this queen of fruits, who could resist? Here is one of my faves, whose recipe I got from www.samartfoods.com.

Mango Fool

3 cups pureed mango, strained

1 tablespoon lime/lemon juice

½ cup granulated sugar

3 cups chilled whip cream, whipped until stiff peaks formed

mango strips for garnish

Procedure:

1.Combine the mango puree with the lime/lemon juice and sugar. Chill for an hour or two.
2.Before serving, fold the chilled mango mixture with the whipped cream. Fold lightly so that the puree mixture and the whipped cream retain their distinctiveness.
3.Spoon into pretty glasses or flutes. Top with mango strips. Serve immediately.
