mango fool with blueberries

I made this dessert for lunch the other day. The recipe is from Gourmet Easy Dinners magazine. It is rich yet light and small portions are perfect. It is also quick and easy to prepare.

Mango Blueberry Fool

1 lg. ripe mango, pitted, peeled and cut into chunks

1/4 c. sugar, or to taste

2 tbsp. fresh lime juice

1 c. chilled heavy cream

1 1/2 c. blueberries

grated lime zest to garnish

Puree mango, sugar, lime juice and a pinch of salt in a blender until very smooth. Add cream and blend until very thick. Blend in additional lime juice and sugar if desired. Transfer to a bowl, fold in most of the blueberries, then divide among 6 glasses. Top with remaining berries and zest. Chill.

Oops. Looks like I forgot to add the lime zest garnish. That happens to me way too often, even if I have the garnish ready and sitting right next to the dish. I usually find it when I’m cleaning up. Oh well, it’ll be like a new recipe next time!
