I'm a human being on planet earth. I've lived hundreds of lifetimes. In this incarnation I'm here to advance medicine.

Here we go! Recipe # 2 of “Tropical Week”.

As many of you are well aware, I eat ice cream and frozen yogurt throughout the year, (yes, even during the frigid New England winters), but it is around this time that my yearning for frozen treats is pushed into high gear.

Mango Frozen Yogurt

I’m especially drawn to fruity ice cream and frozen yogurt flavors during the spring, as ripe produce starts piling up on grocery store and farmer’s market shelves.

This mango fro yo is super simple to whip together, and is refreshingly delicious piled into a bowl… but melting into a serving of warm Tropical Fruit Crisp, (recipe coming in a couple of days!), is a perfectly decadent way to enjoy the sweet flavor and creamy texture.

Despite the addition of a splash of vodka, the fro yo still managed to freeze pretty hard; but 10 minutes on the counter – or 30 seconds in the microwave – render it soft enough to scoop.

As long as mangos are in season, I will have a batch of this frozen yogurt hanging out in the freezer!
