Mango and Lime Cream Recipe

Mango and Lime Cream
This mango and lime cream is perfect for the summer season.

It is a straightforward and quick recipe with only a few ingredients. The sweetness of mango complements the acidity of the lime.

The fruity taste of this cream makes it perfect for filling various desserts. In fact, it could be revisiting one of my recipes on this blog, the watermelon tart, but with a more exotic taste. However, it can still be enjoyed as a spoon dessert.

Mango and Lime Cream Recipe

I have an absolute adoration for creams. Destiny wanted that a few days ago. Looking online, I don’t remember what, but I found a recipe on an Italian blog, and I thought to make it again with some changes. Instead of using lemon juice, I used lime juice. The original recipe included potato starch as a thickener, which I didn’t have at home, so I used corn starch.
