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

- 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
- 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.
- 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.
- Chill for at least an hour before serving. I found the flavors to be best when chilled overnight.
