How To Make Mango Flower and Serve On Stick Fancy Way
The best way to eat fresh mango is on a stick, in my opinion. I have another technique on website How to prepare Mango To Eat , so it is another option to serve mango. Mango flower on a stick easy to serve with fruits, simple to garnish and no mess when peel and eat it. I saw this idea on YouTube, it is common snack on street and beaches in tropical countries. I tried and impressed! I tried small green color mangoes and green red mangoes to serve on a stick, works great. They can be serve with lime juice and spices.
I garnish the mango flower on the photo bellow with shredded coconut and dry freeze-dry strawberries sprinkles, it gives this beautiful color and slightly sour taste.
We can cover with chocolate, freeze dry strawberries sprinkles and shredded coconut.
∗Freeze-dried strawberries sold as a snack and used in baking. I just recently learned about freeze-dried strawberries and bought to try out. It is expensive. I paid $ 5.60 and it is 1 oz (28g) in the package. However, I using only small amount to garnish desserts. I heard from my family member, we can buy cereal with freeze dry strawberries in it.
