The Caribbean Mango Fool

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Tinkerbell

From my DD's Children's World Cookbook & Posted for ZWT-5. A very healthy, slushy fruit drink that can also be served as a dessert. Although coconut in fresh, dried or liquid form, is an important ingredient in Caribbean Cooking, this recipe does not depend on it if there is an allergy or personal preference not to use it. Enjoy!
