Mangoes and Bananas in Lime Syrup

Delicious served with Greek yoghurt, whipped cream, crème fraiche, vanilla ice cream or the coconut and lime ice. And amazing for breakfast too (if there is any left over!!)  

Serves 4


  • 110g (4oz) sugar
  • 125ml (4fl.oz) water
  • 1 ripe mango
  • 2 bananas
  • Grated zest and juice of 1-2 limes,



  1. Put the sugar and water into a saucepan and stir over a medium heat to dissolve the sugar, bring up to the boil and simmer for 2 min.
  2. Let it cool. 
  3. Peel the mango and slice quite thinly down to the stone, slice the banana too and put the fruit into a bowl with the cool syrup. 
  4. Add the zest and juice of the lime, chill and serve.

**NOTE Nectarines and peaches are really good in this too, instead of the mango or the banana
