Mango-Habanero Whipped Cream

Serves 5 people

Sweet and hot is a combination that sounds odd, but quickly becomes addictive. This sweet and hot whipped cream goes exceptionally well with chocolate.

1/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup sugar
1 ripe mango peeled and pitted
1/4 habanero chile seeded
l-1/2 cups whipping cream

In a small saucepan, combine the wine and sugar and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 3 minutes to form a syrupy consistency. Remove from the heat and let cool.

In a blender, combine the mango pulp, habanero chile, and wine syrup and blend until smooth. Transfer to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until well chilled

In a chilled bowl, whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Fold the cream into the chilled mango mixture. use immediately.
