Recipe : Mango Fool

There's an abundance of ripe mangoes in my freezer. In the summer, we get boxes of mangoes home and then once they have ripened, I clean and chop them and freeze them in smaller boxes and then defrost them one at a time to last the rest of the year

The husband loves to have them mixed into his morning muesli or cereal and the watery bits I normally blend into milkshakes for him.

However, this time there is so much mango in my freezer, that I'm running out of space for freezing my meat, so I dug up an old but easy recipe for a dinner party that we had the other day. Everyone loved it and its so fast to prepare.

 Ingredients :
1 kg ripe mangoes (any variety that you like)
1 tin milkmaid condensed milk
3 cardamom pods
Sliced nuts for garnish (optional)


Remove the cover of the cardamom pods and coarsely pound the seeds in a mortar and pestle.
Skin the mangoes and separate the flesh.
Puree the mango flesh in a blender until smooth
Add the condensed milk and the powdered cardamom seeds and blend till well mixed.
The condensed milk and the mango are normally sweet enough to not require any additional sugar, but taste and check.
Chill until ready to be served.
Garnish with sliced nuts. I used almonds.

It keeps well in the fridge for over a week.

Kim's Leftover Tip :
The cardamom seed covers can be added to your tea leaves / powder for flavour.

Leftover Mango Fool can be blended with milk for a milkshake.

You can even wash out the blender with milk for a great milkshake.
