Variations of this cool, creamy dip are served on many of the Caribbean islands, where mangos are a way of life. It's perfect for dipping fresh fruits and can also be spooned over other fruits, or over pancakes or waffles.
- 1 ripe mango, peeled and cut into chunks, seeds discarded
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons firmly packed brown sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon lime juice
- 1⁄2 cup nonfat vanilla yogurt
- 1 dash nutmeg
- Place mango chunks in a blender container with brown sugar and lime juice. Blend until smooth.
- Spoon into a bowl.
- Stir yogurt into mango puree, stitting until blended.
- Chill thoroughly.
- Just before serving, sprinkle very lightly with nutmeg.
All my guests seemed to enjoy the dip, as the fruit was gone in minutes. I personally didn't care for it as much, but it may have been more about the fruit that was used. It tasted pretty good on pineapple and mango slices, but I didn't much like it on strawberries or papaya. I'm wondering if it would be good over vanilla ice cream??? Hmmmmm....Made for team Gourmet Goddesses, ZWT9.
Reviewed for Aus/NZ Forum Recipe Swap May 2011- So easy to make, tasted wonderful and very healthy. As it is Winter here in Aus, I used frozen mango cheeks and a really thick pot-set no fat yogurt. Served with a fruit platter of gold kiwi fruit, slices of red delicious apple and strawberries with a grating of fresh nutmeg over the top of the dip. Totally demolished by my family in one afternoon tea and all give you more than 5 stars. Sorry to be running late with my reviews. Also posting a photo
A delicious, refreshing, easy-to-make dip that is perfect for bbqs, picnics or as a tasty snack to use up extra fruit. The brown sugar and vanilla yogurt balance the slightly acidic taste of the mango and lime perfectly; the nutmeg gives a slightly smokey flavor. It's important to chill the dip thoroughly prior to serving for a truly refreshing taste. The recipe as written makes about a cup of dip. You could also sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on top of the dip for a slightly different taste. I made this for Aussie/NZ recipe swap #31. Thanks Morgainegeiser!
