Fantastic! Perfect for a hot summer day and easy to make. I skipped the sugar the mangoes I used were very ripe and were sweet enough on there own. I found that the soup tasted a little too much like a dessert so I added some fresh grated ginger (about 4 tbsp.) and it made all difference! I also made a lemon cream reduction to swirl on top and served with a sprig of mint. I would reccomend this to anyone! Read More

This recipe was pretty good if you want more of a lemon soup. I thought that the lemon zest over powered the flavor of the mango. I was disappointed. Read More

While I adore this recipe I only make it as is when I am using the soup as a dessert course. As a first course to a savory meal (this is AWESOME as a starter to a spicy coconut curry)I omit the sugar and add fresh grated ginger and a pinch of salt. Read More

Wow wow wow! Life is very good when you can eat this. So quick and easy. Guests will think you have slaved. I didn't have half and half so I used straight heavy whipping cream could have probably mixed it with milk but I took one taste and just kept pouring and pouring. Made a lot more than I expected probably due to the heavy handed pouring. Lovely to serve. Read More

I love this recipe. It is the perfect blend of sweet from the mango & tart from the lemon. I used the half and half as the recipe calls for but I think I will try it with sour cream or plain yogurt next time just to cut calories. I also sprinkled a few blueberries on top. Even my 14 month old daughter loved this. Read More

This almost the exact recipe that my wife uses. She does add the bluberries and I sometimes add a little hot sauce. This summer I even plan to try some in the ice cream maker. Read More

Yum! I made mine w/Fat free sour cream and added some ginger. It tasted great but a bit too lemony. Next time I might decrease the lemon and increase the mango. But overall a great recipe and wonderful when paired with fresh fruit. Read More

Excellent! I cut the sugar down to about 3 tbs. and used jarred refrigerated mango that was on sale. Also followed the advice of another reviewer and added a few tbs of grated fresh ginger root- delish!:) Read More
