Mango Ginger Coulis
Sometimes the best sauces are the simplest ones. Here, mangos and ginger combine to make an elegant addition to fruity scoops of ice cream.
A coulis is a thick sauce or purée. The fruity ones are great to dab on dessert plates or to drizzle over tarts and pies. Keep them in plastic bottles with a small nozzle for easy squeezing.
