This cold cream of pumpkin and mango is a light dish with a delicious flavor fruit of the exquisite combination of its ingredients, which create a parade of delicate notes that permeate the palate with its irresistible and evocative fragrance.
The mango, in addition to being the star of this recipe, is a very antioxidant fruit with great satiating power, whose name comes from the Tamil word 'mangay', which is as it is known in the region of Malaysia, Sri Lanka and the South of India, a country where it has been cultivated for more than 4,000 years.
Its flavor is sweet, of great softness and with a point of freshness ideal to cool off in the warmer days of the year. But the best thing is that it is equally exquisite if instead of cold it is taken warm or hot, because according to the temperature at which it is consumed, aromas will stand out more intensely than others.
Thanks to its composition, this dish is rich in antioxidants , flavonoids , fiber , carotene , lycopene , carbohydrates , omega 9 fatty acids, allicin , alliin , vitamins A , C , E , K and group B ( B1 , B2 , B3 , B5 , B6 and B9 or folic acid ), sulfur , calcium , copper , phosphorus , iron , magnesium , potassium , sodium and, in smaller amounts, manganese , selenium and zinc .
