White Chocolate Mango and Coconut Spread

Here it is, my white chocolate mango and coconut spread. The idea for this spread came when I was having brunch with friends at a local bar here in Luxembourg. Next to the main plate, they served a small selection of bowls filled with honey, jam and nutty spreads. We were able to identify most of them, but one was very special. After tasting over and over again, all I could tell was that it contained coconut. The waiter finally revealed the myth: white chocolate mango and coconut. Obviously the first thing that came to my mind was: I have to try this one too. No sooner said than done!

I really love the result. The only thing I knew before preparing the spread were the ingredients. I had no clue about proportions but in fine it's all about personal taste. You prefer the chocolaty flavors to the fruity ones, well; it's pretty easy, you don't put too much mango into it. You want to add a little extra nutty touch; you add more coconut. I personally think that the recipe hereunder presents a good balance of all of the ingredients. 

For one jar you need:

1 ripe mango
2 tbsp desiccated coconut 
250g white chocolate

Cut the mango into chunks and put it into a juicer or blender until completely fluid. Melt the chocolate over a hot water bath until entirely molten. Remove the chocolate from the heat and pour in the mango juice/smoothie. Mix the chocolate-mango mixture until you obtain an even spread. Add the desiccated coconut and mix again.

Let it cool down for an hour.
