Cutting fruit

National Mango Board

Makes 4 servings

Blueberries are available just about year-round, so this treat is always ready for your menu. Mangoes are also becoming more and more prevalent in fresh form, and can be found frozen also!


2 containers (4.4 ounces each) fresh blueberries (about 2 cups)
2 mangos, peeled, seeded, and sliced (about 1 ¾ cups)
¼ cup frozen piña colada mix concentrate, thawed
1 tablespoon dark rum, optional

Combine the blueberries, mangos, piña colada mix and rum (if using) in a large bowl. (If you’d like to present the dish with flair, set aside 8 of the blueberries, 4 mango slices, and also cut 4 thin lime slices. Thread onto toothpicks for a garnish.)

Spoon the mixture into 4 martini glasses or dessert dishes, dividing evenly.

Garnish if desired.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
