That oozing looking dessert is an absolute delight for the upcoming warm weather and it is healthy too! The Glycemic Index is kept as low as possible by using mango, passion fruit, egg white and fructose as main ingredient. The positive side of fructose is that we use half the sugar we would use normally because of its sweetening power 1.73 times higher than sucrose (regular sugar) and moreover, fructose glycemic index stands at 19, while refined white sugar is at 61. But there is more in that dessert that meets the eyes – a truck load of carbohydrates from the mangoes making this dessert a great after-exercise treat!

The bottom part is made of pure mango and passion fruit juices with a little gelatine to add some texture to it – then we add fresh chopped mangoes and we top it with a passion fruit mango cloud, scorched to perfection, plus a little fresh lime zest to finish the dessert on a tangy note. It takes 30 minutes at most to prepare this – or you can prepare it ahead and chill it in the fridge for a while, it’s even better!
