This fantastic Mango dish can be served either as a soup or even a smoothie – yes a smoothie!
Because of the chunks of mangos in the bottom of the dish, you can spoon as a soup. You can also skip the chunks of mangos in the bottom of the dish and enjoy it as a smoothie. Your choice! I found this Mango Soup recipe in a Bed and Breakfast cookbook a number of years ago and it is always a huge hit when I serve it. It is cool, refreshing, and beautiful to look at.
