  • 1 tablespoon ancho chili powder
  • 2 cups mango, pureed ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 cup plain low fat yogurt ¼ cup chopped fresh mint laves
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk 1 tablespoon rum extract
  • To prepare the mamey: Peel the mamey with a sharp knife. Carefully dice about 1 cup of mamey into “crouton” sized cubes; cover and refrigerate, reserving for garnish.

Preparation

To prepare the soup: In a large bowl, whisk together the mamey mixture, yogurt and coconut milk. Season with lime juice, chili powder and cumin, then mix in the mint and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
To serve: Ladle the soup into 4 large bowls. Divide up the mamey cubes into each bowl of soup and float 1/4 teaspoon of rum extract on top of each bowl.
