Recipe: Damn Good Frozen Mango Dessert

July 21, 2013 in Easy Recipes, I Adore What I Love >/div>
Isaiah and I went to a friend’s house over the fourth of July holiday and for dessert, they had this amazing mango treat that I couldn’t get enough of.  To be honest, we were on our way out the door and just before we were saying our goodbyes, they took these out of the freezer.  I mean, they looked amazing, so naturally we each took one to go.  I had never seen this kind of treat before but immediately upon laying my eyes on it, I knew it would be right up my alley.

Why you ask?  Well, because of a few reasons:

  1. When mangoes are good, they’re good.
  2. Especially during this time of year, they are one of my all-time favorite fruits!
  3. Anything from the freezer excites me… can’t help it. Just adore a good frosty treat!
  4. They were different!!!
       
 
I decided that I had to make it for myself – but obviously I would try the healthy version – so the next day, I ran to the store to get me some mangos… and some fat-free cool whip (I’m pretty sure it was originally made with some type of heavy cream but for my purposes, cool whip would be perfect)!  I have no idea what one would call this clever little indulgence (Creamy Frozen Mangoes?!?!?!) so if there is a name out there for it, do tell.  For now, I’ll stick with describing it as the one and only “Damn Good Mango Dessert” :)
…although I guess there is no harm in eating it for breakfast or lunch or even dinner too!
Ingredients:  (makes 10 creamy-mango halves)

Directions:

  1. Cut the mangoes in half
  2. Scoop out the mango insides into a large bowl, putting the mango skins (now halved) to the side.
  3. Add cool whip to the bowl with the scooped mango.
  4. Blend the contents of the bowl.
    (I used my kitchen-aide but I think combining everything in a blender and doing it that way would be better)
  5. Pour or scoop blended contents into the mango skin halves.
  6. Put in freezer for about 45 minutes or until frozen.
    Best eaten when NOT hard-as-a-rock!!
  7. Serve at a party or enjoy alone…  use your teeth to eat or spoon out the frozen mango!
    Store the remaining frozen halves in zip-lock freezer bags in the freezer.

Go ahead – PIN those fine-looking pictures!!
