Strawberry Mango Lime Syrup


I’m just coming out of three birthday’s in a row, so I’ve got some catching up to do!

Is Strawberry-Mango combination truly such a novelty? (I search and could not find!) What a pair they make! I basically had to make this syrup recipe up. It was delicious! Now you can thank me tomorrow morning for this priceless little invention as you are spooning it over your warm pancakes. :)

Strawberry Mango Lime Syrup (By Lyd)

  • 4 cups chopped ripe mango, from 2 (1-pound) mangoes
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, or to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • pinch of cinnamon

In a small pot, stir cool water and cornstarch together until well mixed. Turn on heat to medium. Add sugar, lime and cinnamon and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and add fruit. Don’t over cook the fruit—unless you like it that way- I just like mine a little fresher.


Lyd’s Confession:

I have never properly cut up a mango before, so I turned to good old YouTube for a tutorial… thought I would share in case you are in the same boat. :)

So I don't know where your original thread is to comment on that post - BUT, I just tried out "doug's favorite chicken enchiladas" last night and I layered corn tortillas (instead of flour) and it was HEAVEN. My sweet hubby (who is a very picky eater) even took leftovers with him to work and told me again how good it was - so I just thought I'd leave a comment thanking you for the recipe. :)

What a fantastic idea--strawberries & mangoes (squashed mangoes and semi-moldy strawberries, of course) are HH regulars! :) Lydia loves mangoes, so we'll try this next time we have both together. And hey--we made a syrup once by blending up a jar of homemade peaches and adding just a touch of corn syrup--it was actually not too bad, although it probably would have been better if I'd cooked it a bit . . .
