Mango Fool

Why something so delicious is named such , I have no clue - but Mango Fool is the actual name of this drink which must have 1000's of versions . A fool is an English dessert. Traditionally, fruit fool is made by folding pureed stewed fruit (classically gooseberries) into sweet custard ( net sources ).The one I grew up drinking as a kid and then made decades later last week is made out of raw mangoes - probably an Indian version. The recipe depends upon your taste - balance sweet and sour to suit .
Boil enough raw mangoes to get 2 cups of mango pulp - so pressure cook unskinned raw mangoes , cool , peel and remove the pulp.Take half the amount of chilled milk or cream to pulp and blend the two.Add sugar and salt to taste.I add some freshly ground black pepper too , the consistency is thick like a smoothie  .Chill Mango Fool a couple of hours ,when ready to serve , salt the rim of your glass and pour in this sweet , tangy and delicious drink.
