A Bowl Of Mango Sunshine

By • May 9, 2012 69 Comments



Author Notes: I love fruit soups, with strawberry soup and plum soup at the top of my list. I wanted to create something with mangos that wouldn't be a dessert (because we've been eating so many cookies, crisps, and cakes lately), so soup seemed like a natural choice for me.TheWimpyVegetarian

Serves 4

  • 3 ripe mangos
  • 1 seven-ounce container of plain, low-fat Greek yogurt (I used Fage)
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • ¼ cup low-fat milk
  • 1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons honey (I used Buckwheat honey)
  • 1 teaspoons mint leaves
  • 1/2 Serrano pepper, minced
  1. Slice the mangos in half around the large seed in the middle. Scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Put the flesh in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade.
  2. Add all the rest of the ingredients to the bowl, and whirl the processor like crazy. If you don't have a food processor, I'm sure a blend would work fine too.
  3. Chill for at least an hour before serving. I found the flavors to be best when chilled overnight.
