The exotic flavors of tropical fruit pair perfectly with coconut ice cream in this luscious confection that brings to mind palm trees, an aquamarine sea, warm breezes and pink sandy beaches. Can a dessert be this good? Try it and find out for yourself! Try serving this recipe with gaufrettes or other thin cookies or wafers. With coconut sorbet, in a small amount, this makes a great appetizer, quite surprisingly, as a refreshing palate cleanser. Try other sorbets, such as strawberry, mango, or lemon. Be as creative as you desire.
- 1 mango, peeled, pitted and cut into thin slivers, soaked in simple syrup
