      My mind is on breakfast right now...I'm it's sort of not dessert. Similar to the mango lassi, if you get to the point where you just want to use them all up, make a smoothie with it by throwing it in with some vanilla yogourt and a tiny splash of milk or juice. You can also make parfaits with yogourt and mangoes and granola.

      1. re: S_K

        I do that too, but I didn't call it a parfait before reading this!

        Mango, Greek yogurt, a splash of heavy cream if I have it, a drizzle of honey, a few blackberries. Or, the same, with generous scoops of fresh ricotta instead of the yogurt.

    2. Sticky rice with mango is one of my favorites. Use Amy Sherman's recipe from her blog:

      Also love Jacques Pepin's almond cake with mango coulis:

      You can also just puree the mangos, mix in some plain yogurt, honey and maybe some orange blossom water for a sweet lassi.

      Or make mango aqua fresca. Puree the mangos, add some sugar and lime juice to taste, then add some water for a really nice hot weather drink.

      Not that it's hot here in Massachusetts, but still, it will be delicious.

        Mango pudding is light and refreshing and will use 4-5 large mangos for this recipe/version from Epicurious.

        1. Sorbet, granita or ice cream.

          1. I'm much taken with Nigel Slater's suggestion that mango is best eaten naked, in the bath, with your partner.
