MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 14, 2012

This is a wonderful recipe. I used a Magic Bullet because I don't have a food processer, and it worked great. The tast of all the ingredients are wonderful and light. I will make this again, but use a larger mango for more mango taste.

This recipe is so easy to make with a processor and tastes delicate and fresh.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 9, 2011

We loved these! The macadamia crust was incredible. The key to the filling is to make sure and select a ripe, delicious, and sweet mango - and probably a larger one the better to ensure more mango taste. I did not include the lemon lest. I will make this again!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 5, 2011

My family was not a fan of this recipe. It seemed to be missing something. It was very bland. I think maybe if you added pineapple it would give that something extra.

However, I thought it did make a good coffee/tea companion.
