Better Than Ice Cream!

A few weeks ago I bought a couple of mangos, real cheap.  They were pretty ripe, so I refrigerated them.  One I ate pretty quickly, but not the other. 

After I finally started the second one, I realized that it was over-ripe.  It didn't taste very good, so  I had an idea.  I wrapped it in plastic wrap and froze it.

Then the other day I felt like having something cold, so I took it out, along with a sharp knife. I began slicing off pieces and eating them.  It was filling, so I froze what I couldn't eat.  Today I took it out and finished it.  Frozen fresh mango sure beats ice cream and sorbet.  No sugar, fats etc, just mango.

From someone who still thinks that the oranges she froze as a child are the best Popsicles, frozen mangoes must be a positively tropical summer delight! I think I'll try it. Does the fruit cut easily off the pit? I hate the way it seems like half of a mango sticks to the pit.

The final stage of eating around the pit was a mess of course. You need a sharp knife when frozen, so don't let the kids try, and be careful yourself. Not good if you're in a rush.
