Mango season means fresh mango recipes on Food Of Interest. Throughout the year I am on the look out for nice mango recipes which I can make when the mango season arrives. I dream about mangoes imagining the recipes and how they will turn out when I actually make them. Such is the power of mangoes, the ‘king of fruits’. So this time after last week’s raw mango jam recipe, here I am, with a frozen mango yogurt or mango froyo recipe.
Mango froyo has a few simple items, ripe mangoes, fresh thick whisked yogurt. To balance the flavours, there is fresh lime juice and lime zest and some honey to sweeten things up a bit. The creamy mangoes blend into the creamier yogurt. You then get the sour notes of the zest and juice of lime with the honey rounding up all the sharp flavours. ... “Mango Froyo | Frozen Mango Yogurt | Mango Recipes”
