Mmm... warm mango! It's different and tastes beautiful! Thanks!... Just realized it has almost the consistency and flavor of peach cobbler, sans cobbler :D

This is so good. I like how simple it is to make and yet looks so sophisticated. I made 2 with oj for my kids and 2 with the rum for DH and I. Thank you for posting! Made for ZWT5 & Dining Daredevils.

Right now I'm on a rather odd Naturpathic Dr. induced diet of no raw fruits. It's been very frustrating, as I love fruit. I JUST FOUND THE SOLUTION! This is terrific! Not too sweet or heavy. Certainly very simple. I will make this A LOT. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for ZWT5 Groovy GastroGnomes.
