Mango, Lime and Coconut Frozen Yoghurt

Mango and lime froyo 1

I was hoping that by the time I made this recipe, summer would be in full swing. Unfortunately as I type this at the very start of June, it’s grey, windy and cold outside, but I live in hope of some sun arriving soon, which would of course make this recipe much more enjoyable! Edited to add: the sun is now here!

I first made a version of this with one of the community groups I used to work with. It was supposed to be a smoothie, but it came out so thick and delicious we ate it with spoons from little plastic cups. It just goes to show that you can easily make something with minimal ingredients in minutes that not only tastes really good, but is also super healthy too.

I’m such a fan of the mango and lime combination, adding lime juice to the sweet mango seems to make the flavour really pop. I’ve used coconut yoghurt to add to the flavour here, but you could easily switch that for regular plain yoghurt if that’s easier for you to find. You’ll also need to have your mango frozen. Here in the UK you’ll be able to find frozen mango chunks in Sainsbury’s or you can easily chop a fresh mango into chunks, place into a plastic bag and freeze.

This does taste fairly tangy, so if you’d prefer it to be sweeter try adding some honey or a few chunks of frozen banana. If you don’t have a high-powdered blender, I’d use a food processor to make this instead.

This needs to be served immediately as it will start to soften fairly quickly, so keep in the fridge or freezer if there’s going to be a delay before you eat it.

Want to make it higher protein? Use Greek yoghurt in place of the coconut yoghurt. You could even use a different kind of frozen fruit in place of the mango, delicious!

Oh and if you like those bowls you can find them over at DotComGiftShop! I love their stuff.

    This sounds delicious! Is there something I could replace the lime with? I really, really don’t like fresh limes for some reason and I really like the sound of this dessert :P Thanks!

  • Maria B

    I agree, lime squeezed on mango is so good! This sounds fantastic, so refreshing in this hot weather.

  • Mmmmm sounds delicious! I love the freezer packs of fresh fruit as well – so handy! I always add frozen fruit to my yogurt to take to work. So good.

  • Lucy Birchall

    Ooh this looks so delicious and whip and refreshing, yum! I’d definitely use Greek yoghurt as I simply don’t really like coconut yoghurt/it’s so damn expensive. Totally perfect on these super warm days we’ve been having lately!
