Mango and Lime Tiramisu

Delicious Mango comes together with lime and a touch of Cointreau to produce a trully drool-worthy dessert. Serves 6-8 people



4 large mangoes (can be substituted with canned mango)

250ml freshly squeezed orange juice

3 tbsp Cointreau

250g pkt sponge finger biscuits (savoiardi)

500g mascarpone

3 eggs, separated

50g (1/4 cup) caster sugar

Finely grated zest and juice of 1 large lime


*Peel and slice the mangoes into thin slices.

* In a shallow dish, mix together the orange juice and Cointreau. Dip the biscuits in the mixture and lay over the base of the serving dish until it is completely covered.

* Beat together the mascarpone, egg yolks, sugar, lime juice and finely chopped zest until smooth. Whisk the egg whites in a separate clean bowl until they form soft peaks. Fold through the mascarpone mixture.

* Spread half the mascarpone mixture over the biscuits and top with a layer of mango. Repeat the process using up the remaining biscuits, mascarpone and mango. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least four hours.

Tip: the number of layers will depend on the size and depth of your dish.
