School time is soon going to restart for my kids!

With summer around and loads of mangoes available, I thought it was a good idea to bring the vacations to a sweet end by giving into the sweet tooth of my little Angels.

 Here’s an easy recipe to a great mango dessert. It’s indeed an awesome feeling to just sit back and see the little ones enjoying and pampering their little “sweet taste buds”!

Method:

  1. Dissolve the gelatine in water over a double boiler (a pan of hot water) by stirring continuously.
  2. In a blender; blend together the condensed milk, grated cottage cheese, dissolved gelatin and mango essence.
  3. Add the chopped mangoes to this and blend again for just a minute. (Do save some pieces for decoration).
  4. Whip the cream well and gently fold into the above mixture.
  5. Pour into mould rinsed with water (still wet – this would make unmoulding easy).
  6. Leave to set and chill in the refrigerator for about 1hr and 15 minutes (approx.) When set unmould onto a serving plate.
