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.
