Such a simple and easy dessert, what's not to love? I found this recipe at the Care2 website @ Inspired by From Bangkok to Bali in 30 Minutes, by Theresa Volpe Laursen and Byron Laursen (Harvard Common Press, 2003). Care2 says: This dessert is so laughably simple it almost doesn’t count as a recipe, but it’s so mouth-watering and so good for us–since it uses the health-promoting skin of the mango as well as the flesh–that we just had to include it! The world’s-easiest-to-make mango dessert delivers some great benefits.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 mangoes, VERY ripe organically-grown
  • 1 lime, juice of


  1. 1. Slice thin slices lengthwise from one side of the mango until you reach the pit, then repeat on the other side. Repeat with other mango.
  2. 2. Arrange slices prettily on a platter, squeeze leftover pits over them to release more mango juice, then drizzle with lime juice. Eat both peel and flesh.
