Ingredients

  • 1 (24-ounce) jar sliced mango, drained, reserving 2/3 cup syrup
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/16 teaspoon ground cardamom

Preparation


1. Combine sliced mango, syrup, and remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until mixture is thickened and mango is very tender. Cool slightly.

2. Pour mixture into a blender, and process until smooth. Pour into an 8-inch baking dish; cover and freeze 3 hours or until firm.

3. Scrape mango mixture with a fork; divide among 4 serving dishes. Serve immediately.



    Prep: 9 minutes; Freeze: 3 hours. This refreshing dessert is well worth the wait--we promise.
  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)
