The Balance Diet

desserts: fruit fool with a healthy
and exotic twist. This is the perfect
make-ahead dessert as it will sit
happily in the fridge for a few hours.

Serves: 2
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Wheat free, Gluten free, Vegetarian

  • Step 1

    Heat a small non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and
    dry toast the coconut flakes until just golden. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    Remove the flesh from the mangoes, place in a blender or
    food processor, and purée until smooth.

  • Step 3

    Stir the lime zest and juice and the yoghurt into the mango
    purée. (Do not mix in completely – you want to retain a
    swirled effect.)

  • Step 4

    Spoon the yoghurt mix into 2 serving glasses. Top with
    the passion fruit seeds and toasted coconut flakes.

    TIP When preparing mango, the easiest way to remove the
    flesh is to slice through the fruit vertically as close to the stone
    as possible. Then, using a spoon, scrape against the inside of
    the skin so you catch every little bit. The Orion Publishing Group
