mango coconut soup dessert

Tropical mango- coconut soup with lemon ice cream and almonds

If you never have dessert on weekdays, why not make some special in the weekends? And special doesn’t mean it twill take you hours to make something pretty or delicious: check out this mango- coconut “soup” for example.

The recipe comes from the Dutch Delicious Magazine 2013; I added a bit more to spice to it by using pink peppercorn (which actually are berries with a sweet, slightly peppery taste).

This easy to make dessert is a true tropical combination: sweet mango; rich coconut cream; fresh lemon ice cream; with a bit of ginger and pink pepper spice.

Beside that it looks pretty and is easy to prepare upfront. Perfect for a BBQ night, or to finish a spicy Asian meal; this dessert makes you feel like you’re in some beautiful tropical place!

  3. Mix well until you have a smooth soup, cover, place in the refrigerator to cool very well
  4. Toast the almonds in a dry pan until golden brown and let cool
