It is by farrrr one of my most favourite fruits (well, that and apples, and grapes… and… well this list could go on…).
I could literally have it on anything, no lie.
Breakfast with muesli, in a salsa (mango, chilli & coriander salsa – you make chicken even more heavenly), in a coulis on ice-cream… so versatile, so delicious.
I decided to combine those favourite tropical flavours of; mango, lime and coconut to create the perfect mid-summer saviour, or maybe something to transport you all suffering the wintery cold on the other side of the planet to a warm paradise dream?
adapted from Donna Hay’s Rock melon and Yoghurt Popsicles
1 cup greek yogurt
1/4 caster sugar
1/4 cup water
4 heaped tablespoons of toasted coconut
400g chopped mango
1 limes worth of juice
1. Place the yoghurt in a bowl, add the water and sugar, then whisk to combine. Then stir through the toasted coconut.
2. Put the mango and lime juice in a blender, and blend until smooth.
3. Layer the yogurt and mango mixtures in the icy pole moulds. As each layer should be almost frozen before the next is added, when one layer is made, place in the freezer for around 20-30 minutes before adding the next.
4. Once the final layer is added, top with a popsicle stick and freeze for around 4 hours or until the popsicle is frozen.
