Such is Mango


This mango parfait is simple, fast and perfect for a weekday treat. It's suitable for breakfast or dessert, my two favorite meals, and it has me convinced that crunchy, toasted coconut should be incorporated into all yogurt parfaits.

PS - When it came time to title this post, all I could picture was Chris Kattan saying things like, "Can you put the sky in your mouth?"


Mango Parfait
Recipe courtesy of Everyday Food

To make the mango puree:
2 ripe mangoes, peeled, pitted, and cut into chunks
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water

Combine mangoes, sugar, and water in a blender and puree until smooth. Makes 3 cups.

For parfait:
4 tablespoons Mango Puree
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon toasted coconut

Spoon 2 tablespoons mango puree into a tumbler and add 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. Repeat layers and top with toasted coconut.
