I love the flavors of mango & lime lemonade...this lovely Thai dish, reminds me of it.

A great addition to any meal, it is light, refreshing and a great pallet cleanser.

This lovely treat is excellent served alone or topped with lemon, lime, pineapple or coconut sherbets, it is also equally wonderful topped with coconut, or Thai tea ice cream.

Please note that the chilling time is included in cooking time.
