Dessert Obsession: Frozen Mango Dessert

I found this recipe years ago. Just forgot where I found it. oops. Anyway, it uses one of my favorite fruits - - mangos. A few years back, I lived in El Salvador and ate them almost daily. Loved them and I still do! Hope you love this dessert as much as I do! This time of year, mangos are a little cheaper, so take advantage of them.
