This is a light and refreshing soft serve made with luscious ripe mangoes and meat from tender unripe coconut. The best thing about “desserts” made with fresh fruits is that you don’t have to use any additional sweetener if you use ripe, sweet fruits. However, feel free to add in a tablespoon of coconut nectar or maple syrup if your mangoes aren’t sweet enough.
