Sue's Amazing Peach Avocado Salsa ~ #easy #fruit #avocado #salsa #recipe

It was a beautiful summer night and it just so happened to be a Wednesday … my yoga night. After yoga, we were invited to my friend Sue’s house for wine on her lovely patio. Sue owns a furniture store, so her home is a lovely haven, with comfy furniture and beautiful spaces everywhere (much […]


Mango Sunrise Margaritas

Mango Sunrise Margaritas ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #CincoDeMayo #Cocktail #recipe

This Mango Sunrise Margarita is a light, sparkly cocktail with fruity mango and a little tingle from club soda, lime, and the tiny hint of chipotle both on the rim and in the drink. The splash of grenadine adds a bit of sweet and a festive sunrise effect in the bottom of the glass. It’s […]


Rainbow Fruit & Spinach Salad

with Honey Ginger Lime Dressing A rainbow of fruit (strawberries, mangoes, pineapple, red grapes and blueberries) served over a bed of spinach with crunchy toasted walnuts, creamy goat cheese and a honey ginger lime dressing. This salad came about because I suggested for my daughter’s birthday party that we make fruit kebabs. And she loved that […]


Spicy Mango Passionfruit Hurricane

Spicy Mango Passionfruit Hurricane ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #MardiGras #Cocktail #Recipe

This New Orleans favorite cocktail, the Hurricane, is perfect for Mardi Gras (or anytime you want a little fruity rum concoction) … I put my own little twist on it by using Old New Orleans Cajun Spice Rum and adding some mango juice and just a little pinch of cayenne pepper. I was looking around for passionfruit juice […]


Spicy Mango Dark & Stormy

Spicy Mango Dark & Stormy Cocktail ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cocktail #recipe

A tropical twist on the classic Dark & Stormy, this lively cocktail intermingles the flavors of ginger, mango, spiced rum, and lime with a hint of mint.

Coconut Mango Macadamia Zucchini Bread

Coconut Mango Macadamia Zucchini Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #tropical #zucchini #bread #recipe

Hurrah zucchini season has arrived! I got my first BIG zucchini from an unknown friend at work who had left some zucchini from their garden in the break room with a little note: Please take and enjoy! Oh I love fresh garden zucchini. I made some delicious zucchini kale fried rice with it, but it […]

Tropical Pineapple Mango Coleslaw

Tropical Pineapple Mango Coleslaw ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fruity #slaw #recipe

My friend describes this salad like this: it is a slaw like no slaw you’ve ever had before. It’s tropical, fruity, crunchy, with hints of orange, pineapple, mango, mint and cilantro and crunchy, salty roasted macadamias on top. I have made it my lunch on several occasions by topping with shrimp and a drizzle of Sriracha. It goes […]


Pineapple Mango Pina Colada

Pineapple Mango Pina Colada ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #creamy #tropical #cocktail #recipe

It’s National Pina Colada Day today! Since I still have some of that coconut pineapple mixer on hand from making the Hawaiian Fizz cocktails, I just HAD to celebrate with a good frosty frozen pina colada. It has been so many years since I had a pina colada, I forgot how much I love them … […]


Mango Pork Salad in a Jar

Mango Pork Salad in a Jar with blueberry goat cheese, toasted walnuts, cucumbers & a fiery grilled pineapple vinaigrette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #portable #dinner #salad #recipe

with blueberry goat cheese, walnuts (or macadamias), cucumbers and a fiery grilled pineapple vinaigrette I made this salad a couple times … the first time for my yoga friends, in quart-size mason jars. This time I made the salads with mango and strawberries (because I happened to have strawberries that needed using and mangos have been […]


Frozen Banana Mango Margaritas

Frozen Banana Mango Margaritas ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #tropical #margarita #recipe

It was Mother’s Day weekend. My sister and I were heading up to Mom and Dad’s place to celebrate with Mom. I stopped at the greenhouse to get mom some new flowers to plant in her garden … and decided to bring along some margarita fixin’s, because my sis (like me!) loves a good margarita and […]


Mango Ginger Peanut Clusters

Mango Ginger Peanut Clusters ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #easy #candy #treat #recipe #glutenfree

Spring is upon us and I have a spring cleaning bug … badly. I want to clear away the clutter in my house, in my mind, in my soul. Let it all go, make space. Strangely, that is how these little clusters came to be. I was cleaning off the clutter from the countertops, putting […]

Chilled Mint Mango Cantaloupe Soup

Chilled Mint Mango Cantaloupe Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #smoothie #soup #recipe

Adapted slightly from It’s Yummi My dad grows a lot of cantaloupe every year … this year he had a huge bumper crop of melons. When I went to visit, he had over 100 cantaloupe that they had just picked. He gave me 12 cantaloupe to take home and share with friends. I gave a […]

Mango Chicken Mulberry Salad

Mango Chicken Mulberry Salad with Mango Lavender Key Lime Yogurt Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dinner #salad #recipe

With Mango Lavender Key Lime Yogurt Dressing I bought a mango a while ago, dreaming of a mango chicken salad. At the time I bought the mango, I had intended to make it with strawberries, but then the mulberries started and I just HAD to use them on my salad. I went out with my […]


Chipotle Fish Tacos w/Mango Salsa

Chipotle Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fish #taco #recipe

Quite often when I go visit my parents, who happen to live on a lake, they have fresh caught fish. They fish off the dock quite a bit in the summertime and they catch a lot of fish. They eat some of it and freeze some of it, but if they have some when I […]


Mango Salsa

Mango Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #fruit #salsa #recipe

Fruit salsas are sort of a new discovery for me. Just within the past few years, I’ve discovered watermelon salsa and pineapple salsa, and reveled in the marvelous mix of sweet, hot, and savory, all together in one marvelous bite. Mangoes are probably the best suited of all fruits to grace a salsa, they already […]


Creamy Honey Mango Citrus Smoothie

Creamy Honey Mango Citrus Smoothie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #smoothie #recipe

As usual, I was scrambling this morning to get some breakfast in my belly before rushing off to yoga class. I love the Saturday morning classes, but I always seem to be squeaking in the door just on time or slightly late. This morning was one of those … I started making this smoothie at […]


Mango Ginger Montrachet

Mango Ginger Montrachet ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheese #recipe

This is an exceedingly simple recipe, but sometimes the simplest things are the most elegant, pleasurable delights. Montrachet is a fancy word for goat cheese that I learned from my sweet friend Melissa at ChinDeep, and I love the way the sound of Mango Ginger Montrachet floats off my tongue. It describes this simple, elegant […]


Coconut Mango Banana Bread

Coconut Mango Banana Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #banana bread #recipe

The toasted coconut on top of this banana bread adds a brilliantly sweet crunchy contrast to the incredibly moist banana bread. The coconut will be light brown for a smaller loaf, but it will get darker and crunchier for larger loaves due to extended baking time.  I made 4 little loaves so the coconut was […]


Chicken Mango Avocado Salad

Chicken Mango Avocado Salad with Rosemary Maple Yogurt Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad #recipe

with Rosemary Maple Yogurt Dressing & Toasted Pinons Sometimes when I’m at yoga and I’m doing the “listening to your body” part, I hear my body screaming for certain foods. Tonight my body was screaming for chicken … partly because our power yoga class was particularly challenging this evening and partly because I hadn’t eaten […]


Cantaloupe Maple Mango Smoothie

Cantaloupe Maple Smoothie for the Pitta Dosha

Last week my yoga teacher, Sean, asked me if I would be willing to make some recipes for a Pitta. He is a Pitta and he says the Pitta cookbooks he has found are all Indian cookbooks and he’d really like some recipes that are more like the ones he grew up on here in […]
