Mango Puff
I relish a heavy dessert as much as the next gal, but sometimes you want light and bright. I have loved the combination of mangoes and coconut ever since I went to Thailand for the first time. This dish will definitely make you feel like you’re lying on a tropical beach somewhere. The bonus is that it’s easy to make and even easier to serve, all while looking much fancier than it actually is.
