For the sweet Andalusian sugar cane molasses: 165 g of Andalusian sugar cane molasses; 180 g of Water; 25 g of amaretto; 2.5 sheets of hydrated gelatin.

Mix the glucose with the milk, the stabilizer and the sugar and bring to 85º C. Allow to cool and in the Thermomix (blender/mixer) mix the milk and the curd, add the drops of orange blossom and strain. Leave to mature in the chamber for 8 hours and freeze.

Peel the mango and cut into cubes of about 3x3 cm. Reserve the trimmings for the coulis. Reserve the cubes by introducing them into a little mango coulis.

Mango coulis: 100 g of mango trimmings; 40 g of water; 20g of glucose; 15 g of lime.
Blend the mango cuts with the water, glucose and lime juice and cook in a saucepan over low heat. It should have a creamy consistency with a caramelized touch. Strain.
