Cold Mango Rum Soup

Ingredients

  • 5 medium mangoes or 4 cups frozen mango puree, thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk (fresh or canned)
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons golden rum
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Half-and-half or milk (to thin soup)
  • Freshly grated nutmeg and coconut flakes (for garnish)

Instructions

  1. If using fresh mangoes, peel, seed and coarsely chop them.
  2. Working in batches, puree the mango, coconut milk, milk, honey, lemon juice, cinnamon, rum and salt in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  3. Scrape the mixture into a 2-quart container. Stir in half-and-half to thin soup to desired consistency (you might need as much as 11/2 cups.) Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, until thoroughly chilled.
