These tropical mango blueberry muffins will brighten up your morning, or sweetly accompany your afternoon coffee. Mango and blueberry pair well together, and the lime lends a nice burst of citrus. A touch of almond flavoring brings out all three fruit flavors.

This was listed as a top 5 breakfast in Peru on About.com.

My favorite way to serve this is to let the panna cotta cool in one large container, then spoon into a martini or wine glass with layers of orange segmants and drizzles of the balsamic reduction. You can also use strawberries instead of oranges, but I really like the juice of the citrus as is seeps into the panna cotta. I did not include chill time, or reduction time as these will vary.
