I recently bought a massive tray of mangos because they were on a bulk buy special. And the thought of eating 14 mangos before they went bad was a little daunting so I gave myself a challenge to create a new dessert with them…and then it hit me, mango, ice cream…Weiss Bar!! A Summer favourite sorbet popsicle that Aussies love to eat, purchased from the corner shop on a hot day. So I deconstructed the Weiss Bar to make my own version with the same flavours. Smiles all around and easy too.
- 1 large mango, peeled, cheeks and sides sliced off, frozen (pop them side by side in a ziplock baggy)
- 2 scoops low fat vanilla ice cream,
- 2 handful macadamia nuts, chopped and very lightly toasted
Begin the process by freezing your mango earlier in the day. Also toast your macadamia nuts so they’re room temperature when you go to serve.
Using a course grater, shave the mango. Place in your favourite dessert glass.
Using a hot spoon scoop out your ice cream ball and roll it in the nuts – just like Mr Whippy.
Place the nutty ice cream ball on the bed of grated mango and Bob’s your uncle. Actually Bob is my Uncle, well we call him Uncle Rob.
