We’re going all tropical this week, something to cut through the gloom and grey of the good ‘ol British weather: Mango and passion fruit. Mangoes go with lots of things, but they especially help boost the natural flavours of other tropical fruits, such as the fragrant, tart passion fruit. I prefer to use a fresh mango, but if you can’t be bothered with the whole rigmarole of de-stoning it, you can buy readily prepared mango just as easily. For this, you will need to give the mango a whizz using a hand blender (or food processor). The passion fruit is a doddle, simply cut in half and scoop out the pulp and seeds (it should come out very easily).
Once you’ve pureed the mango, add in the passion fruit pulp and mix it in. I reserve a little to top the OO’s with some of the puree and a little more Greek yoghurt before placing the lids and refrigerating overnight. This is another recipe that I don’t think you need any additional sweetness to, but if it’s a little tart for your liking, add in a tablespoon of honey/maple syrup, or some stevia.
Health benefits: one serving of this recipe will provide you with over half your daily Vitamin C requirement, and is naturally low in fat.
