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 topped with fresh mango before serving making an easy solution to dinner party meals.

For a creamy mouth-feel we stayed away from the diet yoghurts and chopped the mango for decoration at the last minute to prevent browning. 




  • 300g low-fat ricotta cheese
  • 3/4 cup low-fat vanilla yoghurt
  • 2 mangoes, chopped (reserving 1 cheek, finely chopped)
