This spectacular dessert is decadent and full of protein. I used Liberte 0% Greek yogurt that has 18g protein per 3/4c serving. If you choose to use a different yogurt be mindfull that this could affect the nutritional values. I also used Ataulfo mangoes (yellow mangoes). They are less fibrous than the Tommy Atkins mangoes and I find a little sweeter too.
I also used regular coconut milk instead of “light”. The “light” coconut milk has more calories and is higher in sugar.
