Quick and Simple Summer Desserts – Mango Fool

Mango Fool


Mango fool is one of my favorite summer desserts.  The fruit is light and refreshing – with a hint of lime, perfect for hot weather!  You can use as much freshly whipped cream as you like!  This is also fantastic with raspberries, blueberries or strawberries!  Simple to make with only four ingredients –  this is the “go to” dessert for summer entertaining!


Mango Fool 1 serving

1 ripe mango, diced

1 lime

1 teaspoon sugar

freshly whipped cream

Place diced mango, juice of one lime and sugar in a blender.  Pulse until smooth.  Spoon into a glass and top with whipped cream.  You can also swirl the mango puree and the cream together – this looks very pretty! Serve immediately!

What are your favorite quick and simple summer desserts?  I’d love to hear from you!

  1. Mango makes the best fool I’ve ever tasted (and I’m a fool for fools). Sometimes I freeze this, if I have time (4 hours or more). They’re great as pops, frozen in shot-size glasses with popsicle sticks.

  2. i adore fruit but i can’t think of one i love more than mango ~ my grandmother used to put slices of it in a pitcher of chianti and as kids we were allowed to eat the soaked fruit heh heh ~ yum

    this recipe sounds wonderful, never heard of a Fool ~ it’s a must try

  3. Here in Mexico, Mangos are everywhere, at this time of year. Although native to India and the sub-continent, they proliferate in our tropical regions. We freeze them in chunks, with bananas, then whir the frozen fruit in the blender with fresh squeezed orange juice, for a morning blender drink.
