Mango-Strawberry Fool

Recipe by P48422
READY IN: 20mins




  • Peel the mangoes and remove the pulp from the seed, trying to keep at least 4 nice slices of mango intact for garnish; set them aside.
  • In a food processor, puree the remaining pulp to a very fine puree with the salt.
  • Strain through a fine mesh strainer, pushing hard on the solids.
  • Chill your mixer bowl and whip in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  • Whip the cream and sugar until soft peaks form.
  • Carefully, carefully fold the cream into the mango.
  • Wash, dry and hull the strawberries.
  • Slice into quarters.
  • Into each glass put a spoonful of strawberry pieces.
  • Top with a dollop of mango-cream.
  • Top with more berries, then more mango, continuing in layers this way until you have filled the glasses.
  • End each with the mango-cream.
  • Garnish each with one of the reserved slices of mango and a little mint sprig.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Note 1- if your mangoes are really sweet don't add any sugar to the cream, just whip it without it.
  • Note 2- this dish won't hold long once you've put it together, 30 minutes or so most.
  • But you can prepare the mango cream and strawberries up to the point of layering several hours a head.
  • Get your glasses out and ready, and then just layer before service.
  • Note 3- try this with raspberries instead of strawberries- heaven!
