Tropical Mango Sauce

This sauce is wonderful over light vanilla ice cream, waffles, pancakes, grilled chicken, and fruit salad.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup diced mango
  • 2 tablespoons crushed pineapple (in juice)
  • 2 teaspoons fine granulated sugar (or Splenda®)
  • 1/16 - 1/8 teaspoon coconut extract

Preparation:

  1. Add mango, crushed pineapple, sugar and coconut extract into the bowl of a small food processor or blender and process until the mixture is fairly smooth (about 15 seconds). If you're using a larger food processor, it will work best if you double the recipe.
  2. Spoon sauce into a covered container and store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Yield:
3/4 cup of sauce (3 servings)
