Nice and simple: lime, yogurt and coconut milk, mango, hot pepper (we used a jalapeno, but ChezSuzanne calls for a serrano), mint, and honey.

You don't need too much lime juice, but it makes a world of difference in flavor.

Don't forget to add the mango! You might have trouble making mango sunshine without it.

Thanks, but when I click on the recipe title highlighted in purple, I get nothing. I did try the little link on the left that says "jump to the recipe". That works. But I believe the other one you mentioned should work as well. Oh, well.
