Mango, Mint & Pumpkin Dessert w Coconut Yoghurt

Mango, Mint & Pumpkin Dessert w Coconut Yoghurt
Pumpkin is very versatile, and amongst all the possiblities is raw pumpkin. It is great to make desserts with as it's amazingly sweet and refreshing. In this dish I mixed it with mango and mint, and added a bit of extra sweetness by throwing in 2 dates. The coconut yoghurt goes lovely with the pumpkin purée as it is, but you could flavour it with lemon zest or ginger for instance, if you like (my favourites) :-)
