Mango's were on sale at at great price and I had to pick up a few. Since I have a sweet tooth thought I would make this recipe. I don't have cute molds but I have two Christmas and one Halloween mold which I used. I'm the only one eating them and I don't care what shape they were! ( Edit- Max loves them- LOL)
We don't drink orange juice (sacrilege for us as now Florida residents) so I subbed apple juice.
They are really good- not real sweet. Nice treat on a hot day.
1 large mango
1/4 cup apple juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar adjust to taste
3 tablespoons unflavored gelatin powder
Peel the mango ( link will show three ways to peel)
Once peeled, chop and add to blender
Add lemon and apple juice and sugar and blend . Mixture should be smooth with no lumps.
Add mango mixture to a small saucepan. Use low heat. When the mixture is warm start adding the gelatin. Add slowly, whisk continuously until it has dissolved completely. You don't want any lumps from the gelatin). Add mango mixture to the molds.
They were in the refigerator about and hour. Ready when they aren't sticky to the touch. My molds are small thus didn't take long to set.
Gently remove and enjoy!
