Will you ever get tired of eating the same fruits, over and over again??
I do! (with certain fruits)

I used to love pink ladies apples, but now I would walked pass the stall without even picking one! Same goes with durian (yes the king of all fruits!!!), I grew up eating and loving durians but now I can do without. 

But mangoes, I can never get enough of mangoes!!! love them.

Mangoes were selling cheap at the grocer. They were selling for 99 cents / mango.
and it goes without saying, I have to go on mango shopping spree and within a week I hauled 40 mangoes, stashed everywhere in my fridge! 

Light and creamy mangomisu

Tropical delight mangomisu

Mangomisu,  is a must try dessert for mango lovers!!

Its simple yet rich in flavours... and of course anything with mango is always delicious.

The recipe adapted from Delicious magazine. 
In the original recipe, egg was used, however, I was concern with raw eggs and salmonella, hence eggs were omitted. I did a simple mix of mascarpone and double cream with sugar.

Mangomisu is the best dessert for hot summer months.

Mangomisu, you can either make it and enjoy the single serve, or you can make it in a springform cake pan for parties. 

Either way, Mangomisu is just superb and delicious for summer.

For my Malaysian readers, if Saviordi fingers are not available, not to worry,  I have made Mangomisu with kuih bahulu before, and tasted as good as Saviordi fingers :D
