Blended mango, coconut milk and lime juice come together for a chilled tropical mango soup.

Let’s go to Hawaii!

Too expensive? Then make this soup and close your eyes. The combination of mango, coconut and lime will take your taste buds there for almost free.

I love fruit soups and later the summer I always make plum soup, but a couple of years ago I started making this mango soup. It was finalist in a recipe contest on Food52, and I posted it about it here, but like anything else I make, I keep tweaking it a bit and thought I’d share the newest version with you. Mango is a very pulpy fruit, and processes into a thick liquid. I took it to a potluck recently and while the flavors were like a fresh tropical breeze, it was more smoothie than soup. I’ve reduced the yogurt and increased the coconut milk and low-fat milk. And I added a little lime zest. It’s still thicker than, say, a broth, but it’s more soup now than smoothie without losing the Island feel.

Something else I keep tweaking is this blog – which is one of the many things I love about self-publishing. The latest tweak is to begin including dietary information with each post. Even when making our own food from scratch, or nearly so, we are a consuming public who want to know details about the sustenance we’re feeding our bodies. As time goes on, I’ll likely tweak the information and format, but for now I’m transferring the information from My Fitness Pal app that I use to track my daily calories and exercise. If there’s specific information you’re interested in that’s not shown, just let me know and I’ll add it if possible.

Wimpy Tips

Crabmeat is a great combination with mango, so crab cakes would be my first choice!

Mango, Coconut and Lime Soup (for a little trip to Hawaii)
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Soup
Serves: Serves 4
  • 3 ripe mangos
  • ½ seven-ounce container of plain, Fage 2% Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • ½ cup low-fat milk
  • 1 Tbsp + 2 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 2 tsp honey
  • ½ Serrano pepper, minced
  • 1 tsp mint leaves
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  1. Slice the mangos in half around the large seed in the middle. Cross hatch the fruit, scoop it out with a spoon, and put into the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl, and whirl like crazy until smooth. If you don't have a food processor, I'm sure a blender would work fine too.
  3. Chill for several hours before serving, or better yet - chill overnight in the refrigerator.
