The perfect dessert after a big dinner. The recipe calls for rum and you can use whatever you like – but the coconut in Malibu Rum gives it a amazing tropicalness – is that a word?


  • 3 mangos, peeled and roughly chopped – save 4 mango wedges for garnish.
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Juice from 3 limes
  • 3 tablespoons Malibu Rum (trust me)


  1. Add all ingredients to blender, and blend until smooth
  2. Pour into 9×13 baking pan Freeze until solid – 3 to 4 hours.
  3. Scrape across the top with a big spoon to make a ‘shave-ice’ like snow, and put into serving glasses – martini glasses work well.
  4. Garnish with lime zest and a mango wedge
  5. The other option is to cut the water in half, add more rum and call it a drink with a name like an Island Breeze. But then you’ll need one of those little umbrellas…
