Summer-Fresh and Sophisticated

When you want the flavor of summer with a sophisticated twist, this light and elegant mango dessert will do the trick. It’s a variation on zabaglione, a warm Italian dessert based on egg yolks, sugar and Marsala wine.

Ours is served cold. Whipped cream gives it a light texture; fresh mango and a hint of ginger add bright flavor. (You can purchase ginger syrup, or try our easy recipe — it's yummy on lots of other foods, too.)

In lieu of the traditional Marsala, here we use a light orange blossom Muscat wine — you can also use a sweet Moscato or even sparkling wine so you don’t overwhelm the mango. If you prefer a bit of texture, fold the diced mango cubes into the custard instead of using them as a garnish.

Take Today’s Step and whip up this delightful dessert for your family or special guests this week (or this weekend). We’d love to know what you think — share your thoughts in Comments below…and enjoy!

  • Mango Sabayon

  • Serves 6
  • Ingredients

  • 4 large Egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup Essencia Orange Blossom Muscat wine (or Moscato d'Asti or Champagne)
  • 1/3 cup Sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups Cubed Earthbound Farm Organic Mango (plus extra mango, finely diced, for garnish)
  • 2 tablespoons Ginger syrup (plus extra for garnish)
  • 2 teaspoons Fresh lime juice
  • 2/3 cup Heavy (whipping) cream
  • Directions

  • Place the mango in a food processor or blender and process to a smooth purée. Add the lime juice and ginger syrup, and process for another 30 seconds. Transfer the purée to a bowl and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.
  • Place the egg yolks in the top of a double boiler (or in a heat-proof bowl) and whisk to combine. Whisk in the wine and the sugar. Place over gently simmering water (make sure the bottom of the pan or bowl doesn’t touch the water) and cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture has tripled in volume and is thickened and fluffy, about 10 minutes. Don’t allow the mixture to get too hot or the eggs will scramble. If you have an instant read thermometer, it should register 165 to 170 degrees F.
  • Remove the bowl from the heat and continue whisking for another minute. Then refrigerate until the custard is well chilled.
  • When the mango purée and the custard are both cold, whip the heavy cream until it forms stiff peaks. Fold the cream into the mango, and then fold the mango cream mixture into the custard base.
  • Divide the sabayon among 6 martini glasses or goblets. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • To serve, garnish each glass with a sprinkling of diced mango and a drizzle of ginger syrup.
