When the Mangoes are in season I really like to use them in my baking and non baking recipes. Adding a lot gives colour as well as the taste.

The best way to buy a mango is to simply use your nose.  A ripe fresh mango should have a fragrant tropical aroma that varies in intensity from very subtle to strong depending on the variety.  A ripe mango will be firm and give slightly to the touch so avoid mangoes that are hard, very soft or bruised.


Ingredients for the recipe……..

  • 2 Mangoes (1 for puree and 1 for decorations)
  • 1 Orange juiced
  • 250g Cream Cheese
