Mangoes, Mangoes, Mangoes

jar of mangoesI went a little mango crazy the other day and bought a whole crate of mangoes. Despite knowing that I really don’t have much need for 15 mangoes all in one go, I’m a sucker for fruit discounts.

Summer is my favourite time of year when it comes to fruit. All of my favourites come out in full force; specifically juicy, sticky mangoes, peaches and nectarines. I feel like I need to carry around a wash cloth with me half the time because I end up with so much of them oozing down my face and all over my hands.

So now I have 15 mangoes–well I’m probably down to about 11 now–and I’m not sure what to do with them.

mangoesWhat are your favourite mango desserts? Mine has always been mango with coconut sticky rice. I had it for the first time when we were travelling somewhere through Vietnam, Cambodia or Laos. The first and only time I’ve ever cooked with sticky rice was during my mochi catastrophe, so I’ve never recreated this recipe at home.

I’m contemplating smoothies or ice blocks, or maybe even a cheesecake. For now I’m just enjoying devouring them one by one.

If you’ve got any ideas for mango-centric desserts, let me know! I’m very keen for some inspiration.

    • Mmmmm. Condensed milk… mmmmm

      I also like the idea of ice cream. But I’m a little apprehensive about making ice cream without an ice cream maker. I feel like my impatience would be a little detrimental to the process… Haha
