Summer Mango Flummery

This is an impressive dessert perfect for summery nights with a delicious taste that belies it's kilojoule content.

It can be made the day before and then topped with fresh mango before serving making an easy solution to dinner party meals.

For a creamy mouth-feel, we stayed away from the low-fat ricotta and diet yoghurt, opting instead for a low-fat yoghurt. Also for decoration, we chopped the mango at the last minute to prevent browning. 




  • 500 g ricotta cheese
  • 2 cups (500 g) low-fat vanilla yoghurt
  • 4 mangoes, flesh roughly chopped (reserving 2 cheeks to serve)
  • 1 teaspoon gelatine
