Step 1: Prep the Mangoes

Halve & empty the mangoes of most of the fruit.

Freeze the halves. You can arrange them in a cake pan to freeze.

Step 2: Gelatin

Once the mango shells are frozen, prepare the gelatin according to the package instructions. I used leftover peach juice & sparkling peach water for the cold water part (plus a little extra peach juice to use it up).

Pour the mixed gelatin in each mango shell.

Refrigerate & allow to set.

Put the Cool Whip in the refrigerator to soften while the gelatin sets.

Step 3: Cool Whip

Once the gelatin has set, spread Cool Whip on top. It should be easier if the Cool Whip has softened a little bit.

Step 4: Blueberries

Add blueberries on top the Cool Whip (optional).

Refrigerate if you don't eat it right away. :)
