Mango Coconut Dessert Soup

This post was originally published in July 2015. I have taken and uploaded new photos while the recipe and blogpost remain unchanged. 

I’ve got terrific news, my friends! It’s official – I’ve been in love with mango recently. Where is the news, you might be wondering? And you’re right. Old same, old same. I was just kidding!

Indeed, it’s already my second dessert soup on the blog (Oh, have you skipped it? Don’t worry – it’s here), and you’re going to see a lot of other combos this summer. At least I’ve already got pictures for two other posts, and I’m not stopping. I feel some of you would love to know if I am going to make lavender dessert soup. Yes, I am!

But I really am surprised by my man who has been willingly eating this kind of dessert. That couldn’t be real a few years back when I made dessert soup the first time. The idea sounded so repugnant to him that I even would not start this dialogue anymore for a number of years!

Definitely something has changed. At the beginning of June, when I gave him my bowl to try a spoon of another soup, I got it back perfectly empty. Wow. I repeated. I was asked for an individual plate. I even didn’t need to draw a veil over-explaining the idea of this dessert (by using a diplomatic description like “nicely melted fruit sorbet topped with a scoop of ice cream and sprinkled with chocolate and berries” – sure the emphasis always on the words “ice cream”, “sorbet”, and “chocolate” ignoring a forbidden collocation “dessert soup”).

Nope. He doesn’t turn pale or faint every time he hears this “dessert soup” anymore.

I told you – something has changed! And the bottom line is everyone’s palate could be developed. So if anyone continuously refuses to try on a particular kind of food, you still have a chance to change that. Just keep working. And don’t be intimidating.

However, I’m still thinking it’s not the major reason. Perhaps, I just did leave him no choice by not making any other desserts for the time being. If I were making any other desserts, he would probably opt for them.

Here we go – it’s another approach to work on someone’s palate. Hahaha (sinister laughing).

Anyways, dessert soup is a delicious, simple, and healthy dessert for a sweet tooth. Being quite simple, it still could be pretty sophisticated and sexy. Stay tuned and I’ll prove that to you!

This time I’ve got the Mango Coconut Dessert Soup – the combo that won’t let you down! It’s dairy-free as well, sure if you don’t top it with a scoop of ice cream – choose coconut one or sorbet.

And finally, it’s good. It’s damn good.

Have a seat and grab a spoon, my friends!
