You'll need

1 small mango, coarsely chopped 100 gm Greek-style yoghurt 85 gm heavy cream (45% fat), lightly whisked 80 gm mascarpone 80 gm caster sugar 3 egg yolks ½ pineapple, finely diced Pulp of 2 passionfruit 2 tbsp thinly sliced mint   Palm sugar caramel 150 gm light palm sugar, coarsely chopped 1 vanilla bean, split, seeds scraped 80 ml Malibu coconut rum

Method

  • 01
  • Process mango in a food processor until smooth, then pass through a fine sieve into a bowl to yield 200gm. Add yoghurt, whisk to combine and refrigerate until required.
  • 02
  • Whisk cream and mascarpone in a bowl to soft peaks and refrigerate until required.
  • 03
  • Stir caster sugar and 60ml water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil and cook until mixture reaches 121C on a sugar thermometer (6-8 minutes). Meanwhile, whisk yolks in an electric mixer on low speed. Gradually add sugar syrup and whisk until cooled to room temperature (4-5 minutes). Fold in mango mixture, then fold in cream mixture and spoon into an 8cm x 20cm loaf tin lined with plastic wrap. Smooth top, freeze until firm (3-4 hours).
  • 04
  • For palm sugar caramel, stir palm sugar, vanilla bean and seeds and 80ml water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the simmer, add Malibu (be careful as hot caramel will spit), cook until amber-caramel coloured (20-25 minutes), set aside to cool, remove vanilla bean.
  • 05
  • Combine pineapple, passionfruit and mint in a bowl. Dip loaf tin in hot water, unmould parfait then thickly slice and place on chilled serving plates. Spoon over pineapple salad, drizzle with palm sugar caramel and serve.
