Frozen Mango Delight
You won't believe this one is low in calories! It is soooo tasty and comes in at just 110 calories! I adapted it from this recipe - it was super easy and really delicious. It was pretty hard & icy when frozen (which I quite like!), but if you have an ice-cream maker, I'm sure it would come out nice & smooth & creamy. I still can't believe it's only just over 100 calories!
1/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup water
2 x 425g cans sliced mangoes, drained
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
3/4 cup light coconut milk
Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan. Stir over low heat until the sugar is dissolved.
Bring to the boil and boil for about 5 minutes, or until syrup thickens slightly. Cool to room temperature.
Reserve one mango cheek for garnishing. Blend or process remaining mangoes, sugar syrup and lemon juice until smooth.
Combine 1/2 cup of mango mixture with cream.
Pour mango cream mixture into 6 silicone cupcake moulds. Freeze until firm.
Pour remaining mango mixture over frozen mango cream in pan. Freeze until firm.
Turn out onto plates and garnish with reserved mango.
