This is the right time to plan on making some mango desserts. I have preserved mango pulp of last year and I need to use it up. I will probably make mango jelly, mango pudding, mango souffle and finish it all as I need to make room for preserving fresh mango pulp as soon as the mangoes are ready for plucking. I just had mango juice a while ago which is my favourite among all juices. What fruits grow where you live?

A while ago, my dessert was the green buko-pandan. Though its not so sweet but I love the taste.

@allknowing Well, for me this is the best dessert I can ever have. Buko is coconut and pandan is a king of green leaves that has an appealing aroma. You can check it online.

I think you can make mango butter for bread too. It is up to your imagination to try out new things. Over here, the bakeries are quite imaginative. They have mango lemon cheese buns which I love very much.

That's a nice idea. But wonder how it is made.

@allknowing No idea. They sure won't tell me since they are selling the buns really well, and they do not want all other bakeries to sell the same thing.

Mango is so delicious.i love dried mango and have made a really delicious mango ice cream and have also used it in smoothies. Mango does not grow here unfortunately! I love how you make so much use from one fruit. We have an apple tree and ai make cider and pies as well as eat them as they are. I love free food that grows in my yard :-)

@allknowing I do not have an ice cream maker either. I used a stand mixer and my freezer. It was amazing. I can look up the recipe and give you the link to it if you want. I remember it had heavy whipping cream as an ingredient.

Apples mainly as we are in the North side of the Country. All the Oranges come from the Coast mainly from Murcia, Alicante and Valencia. All the rest I am not sure as some are imported also.

@allknowing I love fruit but not the stuff they have here at the moment it tastes like you are eating glass? Kind of hard to explain bu that is how it feels. I love Apricots more than peaches and another Fruit but they have changed something and I donĀ“t care much for what it is.

I have mango pulp frozen as well and will make mango smoothies. We have a lemon tree and grapes, and friends with sweet grapefruit and oranges. But where we live is fruit heaven. I was born and raised in an area where it was hard to get year round fresh fruit, but moved to the coast where nuts and fruit rule.

That must be heaven. The sweet grapefruit that you have mentioned is it pamelo the pink and white variety? Where do you get your mango pulp from?

@allknowing No pink, just white, but I think they are sweeter than pink, at least tastier. I got the mango pulp from whole fruit at the market and made the pulp to freeze for smoothies. I don't any anything except milk and sometimes a little brown sugar and/or vanilla...and ICE, of course.

@drannhh Fruits are seasonal and you did a wise thing by freezing the mango pulp for use throughout the year. We used to peel the pomelo and remove the segments. You are right about the white being sweeter.

Good idea. Especially using the pulp left from juicing.

This pulp is not the leftover. In mangoes there is nothing like a leftover.

So many varieties. That is why it is called king of mangoes. Kheer seems quite normal for mangoes. I have not tried though.

Oranges certainly grow here in Florida! I love them. I wish we had our own mango trees, because I am wild about a nice, fresh mango!

@allknowing Yes, they are imported. We get them at the grocery store or farm market.
