One of the summer’s most fabulous gifts to us is fresh, delicious fruit. And we’re not just talking about any fruit, we’re talking about mangoes. With their bright, orangey-yellow hue and soft, smooth texture, we just can’t get enough of them. We’ve rounded up 6 of the most magnificently delicious mango dessert recipes to help you add a little touch of tropical sweetness to your day.
Mango Sticky Rice with Coconut-Lime Sauce
Mango sticky rice is a sweet, creamy, and tangy dessert that’s popular street fare in Thailand. The traditional method calls for soaking the rice overnight, then steaming it in a bamboo steamer basket. Our clever method steams the rice in a shallow perforated metal colander placed inside a pot of boiling water. While the sticky rice steams, cut the mango and whip up the indulgent coconut-lime sauce. Cooked sticky rice doesn’t keep well, so for the best flavor and texture, enjoy this dish as soon as possible.
Black Bean Tostadas with Mango-Avocado Salsa
The Mango-Avocado Salsa is also a tasty topping for grilled chicken or fish, or serve it with pita or tortilla chips. We love taking a hearty, flavorful protein like these Slow-Cooker Black Beans and giving it an exotic spin! Your family will love these build-your-own tostadas. We make the bacon optional in this recipe, for those looking for a veggie-only dish. Though, the flavor from the salty bacon slices is hard to beat in any recipe.
Layered Mango Cheesecake Parfaits
Parfaits are excellent dessert options to make ahead of time, chill, and serve. Anetta has created this stunning yet simple to put together mango cheesecake parfait recipe, layering mango puree made from fresh ripe mangoes, graham cracker crumbs, and a mixture of whipping cream, sugar, and cream cheese. That’s all you need to make this delicious mango dessert.
Ice-box cake is my favorite type of cake to make because it doesn’t involve any baking, it’s not time consuming but the result looks/tastes like you have slogged in the kitchen for hours. Make an eggless, no-bake, refrigerator cake that uses graham crackers, whipping cream, condensed milk, and mango puree/mangoes to create this decadent dessert.
This is yet another egg-free mango dessert recipe that can be done in no time if you have all the ingredients ready. Again the ingredients are too not fancy, just the usual fresh/whipping cream, condensed milk, mango puree, and dried fruits and nuts to make this creamy.
Mango Ice Cream
What can be better than home-made ice cream on a hot summer’s day? Just a handful of kitchen ingredients and mangoes is all it takes to make luscious, delicious scoops of mango ice cream. We show you how to make ice-cream at home without an ice-cream maker and in few simple steps.
So, which one will be your mango dessert this week? You also can serve them as supper for snacks in the morning. Mango is refreshing yet healthy at the same time!
