Mango Puree & Coconut Whipped Cream

It’s summer and so humid, therefore some refreshing desserts please! Living on a tropical island feels like a blessing if you have a basket of tropical fruits at home. Needless to mention the amount of recipes you can create with these dulcet fruits. 

I love how easy this recipe is, no need to see flour spill on the flour, plenty of mess in the kitchen and having to wait and wait until dessert is baked and ready. This recipe is really refreshing and soothing against the heat, mango and coconut, an amazing blend together! The tropical vibes are on. If you have never made Mango Puree before or if it can’t be found in your local grocery store, then I have an easy recipe for Mango Puree on my blog.

Mango Puree 

NOTE: Mango Puree can stay for up to 1 week in the refrigerator if placed into a lid covered container. 

Mango such a tropical delight! The puree is perfect for several types of desserts to fancy your families & friends. I have cooked my Mango Puree to achieve more taste, texture and smooth puree, you can choose not to cook as well. Into a blender or food processor, puree mango chunks until smooth. Refrigerate into a mason jar, lid covered and allow to chill.
