- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup packed fresh mint leaves
- 2 ripe mangoes, peeled, pitted, and thinly sliced
- Ginger or vanilla ice cream (the best brand is Reed's)
Bring water and sugar to a boil in a saucepan and cook until sugar is melted, stirring occasionally. Add the ginger and cook for 1 minute. Remove from the heat, stir in the mint and steep for 5 minutes. Place the mango in a bowl, strain the syrup mixture over the mango, cover, and let chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Serve over ice cream or topped with vanilla yogurt.
