A dazzling spa recipe from Kathleen Daelmans at the Grand Wailea Resort and Spa on the big island of Hawaii. Concocting lowfat desserts is a pleasure when you’ve got such dazzling fresh fruits available.
2 very ripe mangoes or papayas, peeled, seeded and cut into thin wedges or ½-inch cubes
Maple syrup (optional)
Puree the mangoes in a blender or food processor until smooth. Press through a sieve. Taste and add maple syrup to sweeten, if using.
Select and prepare the fruits. Arrange the fruits on 4 plates, with the bananas at the “tops” and “bottoms” of the plates. Using a teaspoon, drizzle the fruit sauce in thin lines over the surface of the plate and over the fruits. Garnish with mint and serve at once.
