Two recipes in one — easy mango custard and a simple strawberry glaze!
Alright, are you ready for part two of this exciting four part recipe that I mentioned yesterday in my easy Mango Sorbet recipe post? I guess this would technically be parts two and three, because there are two recipes!
The next components of this recipe are a simple strawberry glaze and a mango custard. These are two incredibly easy recipes that can be used as a finishing touch on just about any recipe!
I won’t go into too much detail, but this whole series of recipes is part of a recipe contest I am entering for LorAnn’s Oils. While the main use of these oils are in tomorrow’s recipe, I did use the mango oil that they offer in the custard. I felt like it was easier than cutting up and pureeing mangoes, and it really added a genuine, delicious mango flavor. LorAnn’s Oils are available all over the country, or they can be ordered on the website They aren’t expensive at all!
