1 medium ripe mango, peeled, pitted and chopped
(reserve a few slices for garnish)
3 tbs sugar
2 tsp freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
1 cup heavy cream
½ tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup prepared custard
star anise powder for garnish
In a blender, combine chopped mango, 2 tbs of the sugar and grapefruit juice. Blend until smooth.
Using an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, combine cream, remaining sugar and vanilla. Whip until peaks form. Remove ½ cup of the whipped cream and set aside. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the mango puree into the remaining whipped cream. Divide custard, mango cream and whipped cream into glasses or dessert bowls. Dust lightly with star anise powder.
