This recipe uses the mangoes that remained from my recent bulk buy purchase, and in many ways it is a pudding version of the cake I posted last week. I liked the cake more, but this is easier to make - and you can eat it for breakfast. Like the cake, it has a simple, whole food ingredient list. The green colour comes (unsurprisingly) from avocado and that also lends a creamy texture. Banana, pineapple and coconut round out the ingredient list.
This isn't the most attractive pudding, although sprinkling coconut on top does help. However, it tastes entirely of tropical fruits and not at all of avocado (said by someone who doesn't like plain avocado). It will definitely lift a cloudy day, and if you are blessed with as much sunshine as we have, it will add to the summery experience.

2 medium mangoes (approximately 300g with peel and stone)
1 large avocado (approximately 170g with peel and stone)
1 large banana (approximately 100g with skin)
2 - 3 tinned pineapple rings, or 1/4 cup fresh pineapple
1/4 cup + 1/8 cup desiccated coconut, divided

Combine the mango, avocado, banana and pineapple in a food processor or blender and process until just smooth. Add the 1/4 cup coconut and vanilla and process to incorporate.
Spoon into individual dishes and top with the remaining coconut. Chill in the fridge until serving. Will keep for 2 days.
