  • “I was looking for something to put in my new little cupcake dishes and I had a very ripe mango to use up. This recipe was just the ticket. I put bands of waxed paper around the dish and overfilled the dish. I think these little souffles look very cute. I used lime instead of lemon and included the juice as well.The flavour was just right, not too sweet, not to tart but just right. It made 4 cups of mixture and my dishes hold 1 cup so it made three servings by the time I overfilled the dish. Thank you.”

  • “Smooth, creamy and delicious; a great summertime dessert. I put the whole mango in and garnished it with raspberries. Good plan; my one quibble is that I would have liked the mango flavour to have been a little stronger, but it may just be that what passes for a ‘large mango’ in Ontario would not cut the mustard in Oman. Next time I will get two mangoes, put in one and a half, and use half to garnish. “
