Awesome for a summer time treat if served cold. I'll bet if this was warm and you poured it over some icecream it would be a taste of heaven.

I just adore mangoes. They remind me of some fantastic childhood memories. They taste awesome, and go well in so many dishes! I love sweet yellow mango fresh fruit slices with human & hot desolated for breakfast, to quench thirst in an afternoon drive a yellow or sometimes a green mango shake or smoothie, for desserts mango panda, mango sago, mango float, mango cake & much more the best mango ice cream & the best bite of the dried mangoes even in the packed already!
