FANTASTIC! Would never have believed that you could make such a fantastic but easy dessert with just 3 ingredients and 5 minutes work.
The taste is just sensational and it's become a firm summer favourite.

This thing tastes GOOOD. I love mangoes, I love cointreau, and I love mint -- but I had no idea how good they'd taste together!

Excellent. A really simple pudding that tastes delicious as the coitreau soaks into the mango.
