Frosty Mango Delight

The calendar says, "Summer!" but our neck of the woods is still stuck in Winter. I'm being an optimist and looking for summery recipes that can be enjoyed on the deck once the warmth finally arrives.

My favorite new recipe website is Better Recipes and I highly recommend you give them a visit if you are in search of something new. This fresh and fruity dessert looks just perfect for a hot summer day and I'll give it a try as soon as the sun comes out...but, you can give it a try now!

Diced mango & kiwifruit, flavored with candied ginger & lime, are spooned over mango sorbet that's scooped into frozen creamy dessert "cups".

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup mango nectar
3/4 of an 8 oz. container of frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 or 2 ripe mangoes, peeled and diced
1 or 2 kiwifruit, peeled and diced
1-2 tbsp finely chopped candied or crystallized ginger
1-2 tbsp lime juice
12 small scoops of mango sorbet
Garnish: mint sprigs

Beat cream cheese and sugar together until smooth. Slowly beat in nectar, then fold in whipped topping by hand until well blended. Spoon mixture into a 12-cup muffin pan, pressing with the back of a spoon to make "cups." Freeze 1-2 hours or until firm. Combine mango, kiwi, ginger, and lime juice; cover and chill. To serve, unmold each frozen cup and place on a chilled dessert plate. Fill with a scoop of sorbet then spoon fruit mixture over top. Garnish with mint.

Number of Servings: 12
