Introduction

I absolutely love mangoes, and even though this recipe was created by me and my friend personally (don't be scared) I am very happy the whole thing happened as now I have a new favourite dessert and would like to share it with you

Ingredients

Serves: 6

  • 10 ounces puff pastry shells
  • 3 ounces softened cream cheese (packaged)
  • 1 peeled mango (seeded and diced)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1 cup frozen whipped topping (thawed)
  • ¼ cup toasted shredded coconut
  • mango slices (or mint sprigs, optional)

  • Bake, cool and remove the 'tops' of the pastry shells according to the package directions.
  • Place the cream cheese, mango, brown sugar and lime zest into a food processor. Cover and blend until the mixture is smooth.
  • Spoon the cream cheese mixture into a medium bowl. Fold in the whipped topping. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Divide the cream cheese mixture among the pastry shells.
  • Sprinkle with the coconut and top with the mango slices, if desired. And Viola! there you go!
  • Additional Information

    If you have leftovers don't keep them in the fridge for more than two week or you might find your husband suspiciously dead on the kitchen floor. Joke! No but seriously, don't leave them there that long.
