Roasted Mangoes & Blueberries

roasted mangoes & blueberries

If I was a painter, I’d focus my attention on making abstract paintings with roasted mangoes and blueberries.

Preferred canvas? A big white casserole dish!

My brush strokes would produce bits of fiery orange flesh with rich black dots speckled on top of a deep crimson wash.

Here’s a glimpse at my latest painting.

What do you see?

The juxtaposition of ooey gooey blueberries & baked juicy mangoes masking the reflection of my happy face?

Wow, you’re good! Did you go to art school?

Now that you’ve learned how to make Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Crisps, it’s time to do something with them!  I probably know better than anyone they do just fine on their own (hello! who ate a whole batch?!!) but let’s jazz them up with another recipe!  So baked mangoes & blueberries? Hmmm.  At first your brain tells you I’M EATING PEACHES (cuz that’s what it looks like) and then your taste buds say WAIT! NO! MANGOES!   The combination of the blueberries & mangoes creates something almost raspberry like. So peculiar yet fun & totally unexpected. And let’s discuss that color again! Can I just say that I want this as a flavored lip gloss. Hello Stila? You out there? Please help.

Let’s get started.
Peel & slice the mangoes.

Gather your brown sugar….

Get ready to toss the brown sugar & butter into the mangoes & blueberries.


STIR STIR STIR. Then off to the oven it goes…. and…..

off to the oven with you

WHAT? WHAT?!!! That turned into that??! I don’t believe my eyes!

come to momma

I added some of the baked fruits to my NF Plain Frozen Yogurt & the Cinnamon Tortilla Crisps!


Pretty darn sinful…yet not!

If you wanna drool over Baked Mangoes (sans the blueberries), check out Tiina’s version. It will have you melting. Promise.
