Mango Otai

This is a traditional Polynesian beverage. Watermelon or apple can be used instead of mango; experiment with the recipe and create your own tradition.
16 medium ripe mangoes I like to use mangoes that are slightly red or green. The less ripe mangoes are best as they are easier to grate. (10 cups cut fruit)
1 quart heavy cream
4 cups pineapple juice
2 1/2 cups coconut cream
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups crushed ice

Peel and grate mangoes in a large bowl add heavy cream, pineapple juice, coconut cream, sugar and crushed ice. Mix with a large spoon to blend ingredients and dissolve sugar. Refrigerate or serve immediately. Drink must be stirred before serving if it is held in the refrigerator. Makes 24 8-ounce servings.

Do you use yellow or red mangoes?

Either one it doesn't matter. Just make sure they are ripe.
