Every summer I resolve to make at least one mango based dessert or dish but all the mangoes get gobbled up as soon as they are ripe. The same was about to happen this year- the mango season is almost over and all I had done was eat 3-4 mangoes every day. 🙂 A few days back, I had made chicken stroganoff for dinner which was downed with a lot of flourish but I felt like something was missing. I asked M whether he wanted a simple quick mango dessert and the reply was obvious. So this mango cream is what I made and it was well worth the little effort as the glee on the faces of the boys (M and R) and the response on facebook was something worth seeing!
You will need:
2 ripe alphonso mangoes, diced small
1/4 cup whipping cream
2 tsp sugar
– Chop the mangoes into small dice. Whip the cream with the sugar till soft peaks are formed.
– Put in a couple of spoonfuls of the mangoes into a serving bowl/glass. Next layer with a spoonful of cream. Top with another layer of mangoes, followed by cream. Make as many layers as you want and have the patience for.
– Garnish with a few pieces of mango and some sweet basil.
A delightfully easy and yummy summer dessert is ready!
