Mangoes are in full season and I’m loving everything about them. Maybe I’m eating more than I normally do at this time of year, but I’m finding them extra delicious somehow. I made a mango, passionfruit and yoghurt brûlée recently which is a wonderful dessert or sweet treat at a brunch. Here I’ve made them into a split with vanilla ice cream, fresh berries, passionfruit, a drizzle of melted white chocolate and coconut shavings. Tropical fruity flavours with a scoop of decadence.
Mango works as well as a banana for a split, perhaps better, and you don’t need a recipe here. Simply cut wedges out of mango cheeks and scatter over whatever berries you like. I spooned over the pulp from fresh passionfruit to give it a lovely tart flavour, and mango and passionfruit are such good flavour friends. I added 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream and melted white chocolate to drizzle over. I finished off with coconut shavings to add texture and crunch to this dessert.
I’m clinging on to the last few weeks of summer as we move into autumn.
